Need an emotional lift or simply to blow off some steam?! Getting in a little exercise can be just what you need to turn that frown upside down. Regular physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that make you feel happier, and is also a key factor in maintaining your overall health, weight and energy levels.
Healthy fats are pivotal to achieving optimal wellness. Monounsaturated fats (olive oil, avocados, nuts) and polyunsaturated fats (Omega-6 and Omega-3) have a tremendously positive effect on your health, when eaten in moderation. Omega-6 (sunflower oil, corn oil, safflower oil) and Omega-3 (salmon, flax seeds, walnuts) fats are called “essential” fatty acids (EFAs) because our bodies need them, but cannot manufacture them.
