How Sugar Might Be Affecting Your Mental Health
The dark side of happy treats.
As rewarding as the taste of sugar is, it brings with it an array of health issues, and affects your brain in a manner you're probably not aware of. Funny thing, some people tend to crave sugar when they're stressed, meanwhile, sugar aggravates anxiety; this goes into a loop. Who doesn't want to curl up with a tub of ice-cream on a rough day? Trust me, I've been there.
Sugar can be addictive because it activates the reward centers of our brains, and resorting to desserts may become a frequently used coping mechanism, which is not only bad for your waist but also your mental health.
