By Susan Newell ★ Replenish and Restore Many people understand that there is a connection between fruits and vegetables and their ability to positively impact how the mind and body function. For example, the advantages of eating vitamin-rich spinach and antioxidantfilled blueberries have been widely acclaimed and accepted. But there are also hundreds of herbs and lesserknown plants that may help replenish the mind and body and restore balance in a multitude of ways. Many of these plants have been clinically researched, and some have been shown to directly correlate with mood enhancement and sleep support. The Sunny Side A positive outlook is more than a psychological state. Scientists discovered years ago that it is a physiological state, meaning that hormones, nutrients, vitamins, and other body chemicals need to be present and functioning cooperatively in order to create optimal mental health.

It also includes feeling rested and energized and enjoying a state of mental well-being. But what is the secret to sleeping well and maintaining a positive mental outlook? The basic foundation for feeling good - physically and mentally - is commonly known: Maintain an exercise regime that strengthens the body and produces endorphins for the mind, and eat a nutritious diet designed to fuel both. Lastly, make sure you're getting a good night's sleep. It's sage advice that seems simple, and yet, these may be the three most elusive goals ever attempted. What's more, falling short in one of these areas usually precludes success in the other two. The fact is many people struggle with getting a good night's sleep or battle feelings of melancholy - or both, since the two can be interrelated. Sometimes these problems can be triggered by a life event or stress. Other times, they may be the result of not eating a healthy diet and not staying physically active. For some people, there is no identifiable trigger, and the disturbances seem to appear out of nowhere.
