What brought psychology to my attention was when I read a comment for a student last year about how his brother’s autism got better when he ate gluten-free food. I did not imagine that changing an eating habit can help someone who has psychological disorder get better. I did not really have much knowledge about psychological disorders. So I did some research about how the is body directly affected by psychological disorders and what would the solution or the medicine be. I also discovered that even doing out-door activities such as running or walking and listening to music can help make one psychologically feel better even if he/she did not have any mental diseases or disorders.
Doing out-door activities can greatly affect someone psychologically. According to Huffington Post, March 27, 2013 By Sophia Breene, walking can help manage mental stress. It increases the concentration of many chemicals in your body that are related to your mental health such as nor-epinephrine. Not to mention that people who work out have a healthy and fit body.
Listening to music can also help us feel better. Many people listen to music when they are stressed, sad, or even happy. They listen to music as an inspiration or a way of relaxing. So how is this related to your mental stability? According to an article in a website called Psychologies, music can help control the nervous system in our body. The nervous system is responsible for controlling our feelings and emotions. And it helps make us mentally stable and of course happy. Music can also reduce other serious issues in our body such as heart attacks.
