Awake!

Not enough energy? Feeling sleepy all the time? Here are some refueling techniques to help you kick off your journey and hit the road where you just stopped for an unending break.

 

Eat Breakfast to Fuel Your Brain
Do not ever skip breakfast. Eating breakfast may increase short-term memory and focus. After a well-balanced breakfast, you will feel more energized than usual. High-fiber whole grains, dairy, and fruits are key to energy. Just don't overeat; high-calorie breakfasts appear to obstruct attention.

 

Fish is Brain Food
No rumor to this. A protein source linked to a great brain boost is fish -- rich in omega-3 fatty acids that are key for brain health. These healthy fats have astonishing brain power: a diet with higher levels of fish would lower dementia and stroke risks as well as slower mental decline; plus, they may play a vital role in improving remembrance.

 

Caffeine Does Make You More Alert
You cannot boost your IQ with just a pill or make you smarter but some substances, such as caffeine, can energize you and help you concentrate. Found in coffee, chocolate, energy drinks, and some medications, caffeine gives you that particular wake-up buzz, though the effects are short-term. However, keep in mind that more is often less: Overdo it on caffeine and it can make you nervous and uncomfortable.

 

Get Ready for a Big Day
Want to power up your aptitude to focus? Start with a meal of 100% fruit juice, a whole-grain bagel with salmon, and a cup of coffee. In addition to eating a well-balanced meal, here’s a wakeup call advice:
• Get a good night's sleep.
• Stay hydrated.
• Exercise to help sharpen thinking.
• Meditate to clear thinking and relax.
