3 Key Points:
While fitness and nutrition are key pieces to your overall health, it is just as important to pay attention to your sleep habits, stress management, and brain health.
Your brain health is altered by the foods you eat and the nutrients in your body. If you are eating with a calorie deficit or low quality foods you will feel more sluggish and your brain will be more foggy.
We are all altering our brain on a daily basis, good and bad. It is imperative that you focus on adding in good habits and ways to strengthen your mind body connection for long term health.
