Podcast: “Nutrition and Mental Health During Stressful Times”


A whirlwind of events over the past few months has added daily stressors to our lives, making it harder to cope, let alone thrive. A healthy approach to nutrition helps us manage external stressors and calibrate our mental health. A well nourished brain allows us to cope with stress gracefully.


It’s essential to understand the importance of nutrition and its impact on our brain, since there is a physiological component of stress that affects brain health. Stress causes us to deplete neurotransmitters at a rapid pace, making our brains work harder.
