We've all heard it said that 'You are what you eat'. Like most clichés, there's a lot of truth in this: A healthy lifestyle is good for not just your body, but your mind and soul too.

A healthy, balanced diet has a big impact on how we feel mentally: our mood, energy levels and self-esteem are all affected.
Think about it: you may have heard people talk about how the body is linked with mind, but actually, your brain is a part of your body! So, by looking after our bodies, we naturally look after our minds too.
