Hey there guys, I’m Jesse Crowe, The
Travelling Scientist Sharing science with the world and I want to tell you a quick story When I was studying at University, I majored in life sciences learning all about how the human body functions and lately I’ve been doing a lot of research into the science behind what makes us happy and what keeps us healthy and I’ve compiled a lot of really useful information about what you can do as an individual to live a happier and healthier life every day I really wanted to share that information with you so I’ve made a booklet called “7 Scientific Strategies For Living A Happier And Healthier Life” This short document discusses the science behind seven strategies that you can easily implement to improve your well-being and make the most out of your life So watch this entire video series and download the free booklet to start living healthier and happier…NNOW! The first scientific strategy to living happier and healthier is to improve our diet Food is the fuel that helps our body to function and what we eat has a huge impact on how we feel So how can we improve our diet? Well, everything we eat is made up of carbohydrates, proteins and fats Now there are bad carbohydrates like processed foods and sugary drinks which are gonna mess with our blood sugar, reducing our energy levels and increasing our risk of diabetes But there’s also good carbohydrates like fruits, vegetables and grains not only is that going to stabilise our blood sugar but it’s also gonna offer essential vitamins and minerals that our bodies really need There’s also bad saturated fats, which you’re gonna find in chips, pastries and animal products These can cause cholesterol to deposit in your blood vessels, which is really bad for your heart Meanwhile, good unsaturated fats found in nuts, virgin olive oil and avocados not only remove bad cholesterol from our bloodstreams but they also offer omega fatty acids, which are really good for our brain function There is no bad type of protein but it’s easy to forget protein in your diet Protein makes up a lot of our body including our hair and our fingernails so make sure that you have a good source of protein somewhere in your diet Finally, Serotonin is a feel-good hormone and a lot of people don’t realise that most of our serotonin is actually produced in our gut so if we feed our gut lots of good food, it’s going to produce lots of that feel-good hormone and we’re gonna be really happy! So make sure that you have a balanced diet maximising those good carbohydrates, proteins and fats while minimising the bad fats and carbohydrates This is going to lead to better brain and gut function a healthier heart, increased energy
levels and it’s going to make you feel really happy So there you have it guys, that was just one of the seven scientific strategies to help you live happier and healthier every single day and remember that you can download the free booklet below which discusses the seven strategies in detail including tips, challenges and links to relevant articles that are going to give you all the information you need to start living happier and healthier, so download the free booklet now and start implementing these strategies to improve your life Also share this video with your friends and family so they can benefit from this valuable information Finally, subscribe for more Travelling Science every week and I hope to see you guys next Science Sunday.
