The stress of a modern lifestyle have taken a toll on the mental health of the population all over the world. Earlier, it was adults who were mostly affected by the problems of depression, anxiety and stress. However, with the passage of time, even children are also suffering from major mental health problems, the roots of which again are anxiety, stress and depression.
Reasons behind it
Be it adults or children, the major cause of health issues is stress. Stress doesn’t only cause mental health problems, but serious physiological disorders as well such as hypertension, diabetes, heart diseases, sexual problems as well as other issues. If the anxiety or stress persists, it would then slowly develop into a pattern of the mind and then become conditioned, thus leading to depression. Nowadays, children are also being afflicted by depression. Similar to adults, depression in children is caused due to any combination of factors that are related to life events, physical health, family history, genetic vulnerability, environment and biochemical disturbance. It should be noted that depression is not just a passing phase. The symptoms are often left undiagnosed as well as untreated. This is because they are passed off as normal psychological and emotional changes that occur naturally during growth.
Some of the typical symptoms are:
1. Loss of interest in pleasurable activities such as hobbies or crafts which were pursued earlier eagerly
2. Loss of concentration
3. Sudden outbursts
4. Sleeping too much or sleeping too little, suddenly waking up early in the morning
5. Constant fatigue, decreased energy and being slower than usual at tasks
6. Excessively low appetite or increased appetite which would thus result in weight loss or binge eating resulting in weight gain
7. The development of physiological disorders which may stop responding to treatment. Many children develop headaches or digestion problems which aren’t resolved by medication.
8. Always sad or irritable or in a depressed mood
9. May find it difficult to sleep or concentrate on work and thus, studies and grades may suffer
10. Extreme and sudden mood changes accompanied by incessant crying
11. Suicidal thoughts
12. Loss of energy as well as lowered self esteem
With children, you have to be extra careful not to ill-diagnose the problems and if they persist for more than a few weeks, you should seek professional help. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Smoking can be one of the most difficult habits to break, requiring a great amount of willpower and commitment. If you’re a smoker who is looking to quit this habit, making some simple changes in your food habit can ease the quitting process.
So, how does food help in quitting smoking? While certain foods can help to reduce your nicotine dependence, there are other foods out there that have been found to make cigarettes taste terrible. Here are some of the options that you can try out if you’re planning to quit smoking:
Milk can give cigarettes a terrible taste. A study conducted by the Duke University shows that consuming a glass of milk right before smoking can make you think that the cancer stick has a bitter taste.
While it’s still not clear what component in milk brings about such an effect, it’s suspected that the bitter taste is a result of the chemical reaction between the lactose in milk and the tobacco smoke. So, have a glass of milk each time you want to smoke.
Another helpful food alternative that will keep you from reaching for those cigarettes are nuts. This is because hunger can cause you to have a nicotine craving. You can reduce the urge to smoke by having nuts that are high in soluble fibre as they will slow down your digestion.
Full of nutrients, protein and energy, having them whenever you feel the need to light a cigarette can be highly effective in helping you to quit the bad habit.
3. Fruits rich in Vitamin C
Smoking brings about a fall in your body’s Vitamin C levels, which you can easily replenish by consuming fruits that are high on Vitamin C. You can try citrus fruits like oranges and lemons that are known to have high Vitamin C content, or you can even include pomegranates in your diet.
By including these fruits in your diet you can significantly cut down your need to smoke, as these fruits provide a thrust that is similar when you smoke a cigarette. Besides, they leave a similar bitter aftertaste in your mouth as when you smoke after drinking milk.
Besides milk and citrus fruits, certain vegetables are also known to give cigarettes a horrible taste. The vegetables that you need to include in your diet are celery, carrots, zucchini, cucumber and eggplant. They have been proven to be very effective in reducing nicotine craving. Take for instance carrots; they contain a compound known as carotenoids, which not only gives cigarettes a bitter taste, but can also make you less dependent on nicotine.
Another reason as to why you must have these vegetables is because they are a simple way of tricking your brain into thinking that they look like cigarettes (because of their stick shape) and can give you the illusion of an actual cigarette whenever you have them.
So, include these foods in your diet and see yourself saying goodbye to smoking much faster.
