How lack of exercise and nutrition can contribute to addiction
The mental health of the addicted individual is often mentioned first and foremost when discussing the various reasons of addiction.
Addiction is frequently blamed on underlying mental health conditions like trauma, sadness, and anxiety. While this is usually the case, it’s crucial to recognise that factors such as lack of exercise and poor nutrition can also play a role in the development of an addiction.
The exercise factor
Humans are designed to be active. On a daily basis, our bodies generate energy that must be used. We run into a wide range of issues when this doesn’t occur. Our culture does not promote physical activity, which is unfortunate. A huge percentage of the population spends their days inside an office. They are mentally exhausted from all the thinking they have to do, yet they rarely get enough physical activity. Numerous people, perhaps in the hundreds of thousands, don’t receive enough physical activity because they don’t make it a priority to exercise every day.
