What we covered

Are you looking for ways to manage and reduce anger in your life? One often overlooked avenue for addressing anger issues is the correlation between diet, exercise, and anger management. In this session, "Understanding the Connection Between Diet, Exercise, and Anger Management," we will explore the impact of healthy lifestyle choices on managing anger and improving overall well-being.

Meet Dr. Shavit

Dr. Shavit is a Naturopath and Eating Psychology Coach with expertise in sustainable health, gut health, women’s health, healthy food relationships, and stress management. With a comprehensive understanding of the mind-body connection, Dr. Shavit is equipped to shed light on how diet and exercise can positively impact anger management.

Diet and Anger: Unraveling the Connection

It's essential to recognize that what we eat greatly impacts how we feel. Certain foods can contribute to irritability and mood swings, while others can promote a sense of calm and well-being. Dr. Shavit will help us understand the following:

  • The role of neurotransmitters and hormones in regulating mood and anger.
  • How dietary choices can impact the body's stress response.
  • The importance of blood sugar regulation in managing emotional stability.
  • Specific foods and nutrients that support a balanced mood and reduced irritability.

Exercise and Anger: Harnessing the Power of Movement

Regular physical activity has been shown to have a profound impact on mental health, including anger management. Dr. Shavit will illuminate the following:

  • The release of endorphins and their role in stress reduction and mood enhancement.
  • The link between sedentary behavior and heightened emotional reactivity.
  • Strategies to incorporate movement into daily life, even in a busy work environment.
  • The connection between physical fitness and improved self-esteem, which can contribute to a more positive outlook and reduced anger.

Implementing Sustainable Lifestyle Changes

Understanding the connection between diet, exercise, and anger management is just the first step. Dr. Shavit will guide us through practical strategies for implementing sustainable changes in our daily lives. These include:

  • Meal planning and incorporating mood-boosting foods into our diet.
  • Finding enjoyable forms of physical activity that fit into our unique schedules.
  • Creating a supportive environment at work for healthy eating and movement.
  • Building resilience and coping mechanisms to navigate stressful situations without succumbing to anger.
