A New Study Confirms that a Good Diet and Exercise are Solutions to Depression

There were two recent studies by the University of Warwick and the University of Michigan and published in the Ecopsycology Journal. The University of Warwick study found that eating at least five servings of fruits and vegetables per day aids a person’s feeling of wellbeing, as low mental well being is associated with depression. So it is good for your physical health and mental health. This is something that many have been talking about, but at least now there is a study that affirms that in a new unit of time. Specifically the study found 33% of the respondents had a high mental wellbeing after eating at least five servings of fruit and or vegetables. Five serving seems a lot, but if you add a serving to three meals a day and snack on fruits or vegetables instead of chips, or carbohydrates. You don’t have to be a vegetarian to accomplish this effect.

These two solutions are easy to add to your daily life and it eliminates any need for drugs which doctors seem to love to prescribe. These two solutions seem simple and maybe something that healthy active people do every day. They also don’t add any extra costs to your daily life, so get out there and walk in the forest and eat an apple.
