Your body is an incredible intelligent living organism that communicates with you and lets you know whenever something is wrong. If everything is okay, it keeps quiet and lets you enjoy the ride. That’s why you only feel discomfort when you are in pain, when you feel restless, tired or out of focus, and whenever that happens, hardly anything goes right in your life because it’s all connected. A healthy mind needs a healthy body to function properly, and vice versa. 

I’m sure that you already know all the physical problems that come along with an unhealthy diet, in the short run and the long run. From headaches, stomach aches, bloating, bad skin, dental distress, shortness of breath, weight problems, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart problems, the list is well-known and never-ending. 

However, you should always remember that an unhealthy diet has a considerable impact on your mindset too, and this one is more immediate and with more profound consequences than you think.

While aches and pains are your body’s way of letting you know that something is wrong, states of persistent apathy and fatigue, to name just two, are your mind’s way of making you aware that there’s a problem you need to address. The most important thing you can do is start taking them into account and choose to do something about it rather than dismissing them. 

If you experience one (or more) of the following problems for no straightforward reason, your unhealthy eating habits might be the cause:

  • Struggling to fall asleep
  • Waking up several times during the night for no reason
  • Waking up tired in the morning
  • Feeling tired throughout the day
  • Unable to focus
  • Poor brain function
  • Feeling depressed or sad for no apparent reason
  • Lacking motivation
  • Not feeling your best self
  • Weak immune system
  • Food cravings in the middle of the night
  • Stomach aches
  • Bloating
  • Body image issues
  • Struggling to get through your day
  • Sugar cravings
  • Feeling snappy, short-tempered or emotional because of lack of food
  • Bad skin
  • Going for convenience snacks instead of proper food
  • Drinking coffee in the afternoon to fight the after-lunch slump
  • Dark urine
  • Weight imbalance
  • Headaches
  • Bad breath
  • Low energy levels
  • Losing patience with mundane tasks
  • Feeling hungry after finishing a meal
  • Shortness of breath
  • Blood sugar spikes

Of course, eating healthier is not going to solve all of your problems, but it will definitely make you feel better. And once you start taking control over your eating habits you will feel that your body and your mind are working with you and for you, rather than against you.
