  1. 1. READING TASK HEALTHY EATING MAKES YOU HAPPIER
  2. 2. INSTRUCTIONS Read the text and answer the questions. This article is about how choosing what eat can make you happier. Make sure you understand the vocabulary and expressions. Check your answers at the end! GOOD LUCK 
  3. 3. VOCABULARY Chugging down (v) – drinking (beer) without pausing Unfavourable (adj) – expressing that you don’t like/support something Cardiovascular (n) – relating to the heart and blood vessel Stomach pangs (n) – a sharp pain in the stomach Scoff down (v) – eating quickly
  4. 4. HAPPINESS AND HEALTHY EATING Many will agree that biting into a moist slice of chocolate cake or chugging down an ice-cold beer can instantly boost one’s mood. However, these choices may not be the healthiest choices. Foods that contain higher amounts of preservatives and refined sugar can actually do more damage than good. Preservatives are substances included in products to prevent decomposition, and refined sugar is basically processed raw sugar. You don’t want large amounts of these ingredients getting into your system, do you? Fresh produce is without a doubt the cleanest way to get the proper nutrition you need and this is why healthy eating can make you feel happier.
  5. 5. WHAT YOUR BODY GOES THROUGH WHEN YOU’RE UNHAPPY When you’re placed under unfavourable environmental situations, stress happens. This is your body’s way of reacting and confronting possible danger. And when stress happens, you tend to find yourself incredibly upset. What you may not know is that sadness can impact your health. Your central nervous system, digestive system, and cardiovascular system are directly affected when you are unhappy. You may begin to find it difficult to concentrate or make simple decisions. Headaches, sore muscles and stomach pangs will come and go, but it is your heart that is at risk. This can lead to more severe health conditions in the future.
  6. 6. WHY HEALTHY EATING CAN MAKE YOU FEEL HAPPIER Have you ever heard the saying, “You are what you eat?” A nutritious and balanced diet means a well and balanced you. A recent study on roughly 281 young adults was conducted by doctors from Otago’s Department of Human Nutrition. What they discovered was a seemingly solid relationship between the food you scoff down and your emotions. Participants reported feeling calmer, happier and more energetic. What people put into their body has long been associated with their overall quality of life. This explains why healthy eating can make you feel happier. If you aren’t receiving the proper nutrients from your diet, you will lack important vitamins and minerals that particularly aid your body in operating accurately. Your diet greatly influences the function of your body’s systems. Eating healthy can also promote other encouraging results like weight loss and improved mental health.
  7. 7. QUESTIONS 1. What should you reduce eating so you don’t damage your system? 2. What’s the best way to get nutrients into your body? 3. What’s the reaction in your body when you are in situations you dislike? 4. What can be at risk if your diet is poor? 5. What does “you are what you eat” mean? Explain in your own words. 6. Your body won’t function properly if your body doesn’t have enough ______ & ______.
  8. 8. ANSWERS 1. Preservatives & refined sugar 2. Fresh produce 3. Stress 4. The heart 5. Similar to this definition - Your body reflects what you eat. (For example, if you don’t eat enough red meat, your iron is low) 6. Vitamins & minerals
