Nutrition can play a role when it comes to mental health. The way that nutrition plays a role is when you skip meals – because you are busy, stressed, or have a decreased appetite – most often you feel hungry and this can impact your mood, increase irritability, decrease concentration and focus. By fueling your body throughout the day with meals and snacks, it can help mood, decrease irritability, maintain concentration and focus. If you take medication for your mental health and the medication decreases your appetite, consider eating a meal before you take your medicine and setting reminders to continue to eat throughout the day.
