This is Why You Must Always Wake Up At 4:30 A.M

Choosing fresh fruits—such as citrus fruits, melons, and berries—provides vital vitamins and antioxidants that promote healthy brain function and lower inflammation. Rich in minerals like folate and magnesium, which are associated with better mood and cognitive performance, are leafy greens like spinach and kale. Nuts like walnuts and fatty fish like salmon are good sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which can also support brain function and lessen the signs of anxiety and sadness.

Drinking plenty of water, herbal teas, and coconut water keeps the body hydrated, which supports mental clarity and reduces tiredness. Stabilizing moods and energy levels can also be achieved by abstaining from sugar-filled beverages and excessive coffee. People can maintain their mental health over the summer by giving priority to nutrient-dense diets and hydrated liquids.

In a conversation with Jagran English, Ms. Priti Srivastava, who is the founder of DayaRani Wellness Advisory and Mentor Advocacy at Reliance Industries Ltd., talked about Cooling the Mind: Foods and Beverages to Promote Mental Wellness During Summer.

According to Ms. Priti, food is not only required for our physical nourishment, but it also plays a very vital role in our mental well-being and emotional health. Summers are here, and we must fight the scorching heat, especially in Delhi, NCR.

Add Fresh Fruits To Your Diet

Fresh fruits are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to start in the morning. So, you can include berries, watermelon, and oranges in your diet. You can make a smoothie out of them, or you can eat them raw.

Have More Green Vegetables

Leafy green vegetables, spinach, and broccoli are very beneficial. Chilled seafood salads featuring shrimp or crab offer protein and omega-3 fatty acids while keeping meals light and satisfying. Experiment with incorporating cooling spices such as cumin and coriander into dishes for added flavor without excess heat. Frozen fruit popsicles made with pureed fruits and yogurt are a delightful and guilt-free treat that can help beat the summer heat while providing essential nutrients. Finally, practicing mindful eating outdoors in natural settings can further enhance mental wellness by promoting relaxation and connection with nature.

Eat More Protein And Nutrient Rich Seeds

Flax seeds are very important. You should eat walnuts and almonds. We should always have nuts and seeds. Like pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. These give us protein and healthy fats that support our brain health. Everyone likes herbal teas, so have chamomile, peppermint, jasmine, and lemon. It is not necessary to have it as hot tea. You can have it as iced tea, too.

Keep Yourself Hydrate

The most important thing is hydration. So, drink a lot of water, i.e., 8–9 glasses, and just to give it flavor, you can add cucumber, mint, and lemon. It will enhance the taste, and it is good. Stay healthy, stay well, and be emotionally strong.
