6. Improving Mental Health
How we perceive ourselves is directly related to how we feel about ourselves. If you believe that your weight is making you look bad or that it is affecting your confidence, then this is going to paint a rather negative picture in your head. Self-pity can often be seen in people who think that their excess weight is making them look ugly. Such self-depreciating thoughts are like sandpaper to your mental well-being. Seeking to maintain a healthy weight helps in alleviating such thoughts and ensures that you are physically and mentally fit.
