Maintaining a balance of the mind, body, and soul is necessary to live a happy and fulfilled life.
The three are interconnected, and a weakness or imbalance in one of these aspects is crippling to the others.
For example, severe emotional stress of the mind can cause high blood pressure and other illnesses in an otherwise healthy body.
By the same token, a physical illness or injury can cause depression in a typically healthy mind.
One of the easiest ways to maintain physical health is through proper nutrition and regular exercise.
People who are able to make healthy diet and exercise choices tend to have more physical and mental energy, sleep better, and are often able to enjoy physical activity into old age.
Mimi Kozma, International Food Connoisseur and Master Chef, joins Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss which foods can be used for a healthier mind, body, and soul.
