Food and Mood

Do you know that as well as affecting your physical health, what we eat can also affect the way you feel and that nourishing your body with the right foods and with regularity can help to improve your mood?

Do you ever feel tired and completely out of energy in the afternoons? do you reach for sugary foods and drinks a couple of hours after breakfast? Do you need caffeine as a pick-me-up? There are so many ways in which how you feel can be affected by the foods you are consuming.

Food is our fuel for life and keeps us alive, allowing our bodies to undertake a multitude of functions every hour, day by day but it is not a simple switch where our bodies are fueled correctly or not! Within all of that there are so many differences we can experience and results we have in terms of our mood. We might experience, headaches…… clammy hands…… strong cravings……… afternoon slump……lack of concentration and focus …. high energy……… sadness………. stress………and more.

Register for our ‘Food and Mood’ workshop and begin to explore how foods can affect your mood. Learn how you can:

  • Boost your happy hormones through food
  • Eat certain foods to ease stress
  • Sustain energy levels all day long
  • Improve the quality and quantity of sleep you have
  • Improve your focus and concentration

This interactive workshop will help you to become aware of how certain foods may be affecting your mood and what you can do about it. We all want to reach for optimum health and through this workshop you’ll begin to learn the steps you can take towards feeling great. At the end of the workshop you’ll be able to:

  • Understand there is a relationship between what you eat and your mood
  • Become aware of how this is affecting you, personally
  • Learn the links between types of foods you eat and your resulting mood
  • Identify any changes you’d like to make
  • Plan new foods you could incorporate into your life

This workshop will be delivered Lucy Crystal, a certified Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach. Lucy has a background in Public Health and has worked within the NHS previously for many years.

As a coach, Lucy has a passion for supporting people to be their healthiest version of themselves and through tweaks made to the foods they eat and small lifestyle changes, they can experience improved sleep, increased energy, improved ability to cope with stress and much more.
