Weight Loss Experts Share the Link Between Mental & Physical Health, Watchung, New Jersey

On average, one in four adults in the United States suffers from a diagnosable mental disorder, but many are able to carry on with their lives as normal. But as the experts at Ultimate Health & Weight Loss in Watchung, NJ, note, you need to be mentally fit before you can before you can focus on your physical health. A healthy mind is a key part of maintaining weight control and keeping proper nutrition. 

Three Reasons To Improve Your Mental Health:

1. Improve Your Physical Health 

There is a strong link between the mind and body. Just like when a physical ailment causes mental distress, untreated mental ailments can create physical problems, such as sleep disturbances and harm to the immune system.

People with untreated mental health disorders are more likely to miss large periods of work each year. This creates lost productivity and you can end up losing your job. A study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry also discovered that people who were not looking after their mental health tend to make 40% less than those who do. If you’re struggling financially, how can you properly focus on your health and weight loss?

3. Live A Longer & Happier Life 

Studies have shown that even those with mild mental health conditions are at an increased risk of death at a younger age, mostly from heart disease. Seeking out help for mental health improves your body's well-being, takes the burden off of family members and employers, and will help you to live longer and happier.

Part of getting physically in shape is to also improve your mental state. Improving both simultaneously will increase your chances of maintaining a healthy nutrition diet and weight loss. If you are ready to start leading a happier and healthier lifestyle, call (908) 279-7740 to speak to a team member at Ultimate Health & Weight Loss in Watchung today.
