We all know that our brains need feeding for them to function properly. It’s important to eat the correct brain foods to help you focus, as the wrong types of food, may have an opposite effect. Here are a few natural tips for boosting your ability to focus.
It turns out that breakfast is one, if not the most, important meals of the day.
Studies have shown that students who eat breakfast perform significantly better than students who do not.
Researchers have found that dairy, fruits and high-fiber whole grains are the best for concentration.
So, make sure to think twice before skipping breakfast.
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for proper brain growth and function.
Incorporating it into your diet has been linked with lowering dementia and increasing memory overtime.
Popular foods that contain omega-3s are fish, seeds and nuts.
Always strive for a balanced diet that is filled with a variety of different food groups.
When I first read that drinking caffeine was one of the brain foods to help you focus, and late at night, I thought this was rather controversial. I therefore was not going to include this article, even though it’s exactly what I used to do when I was studying at university late at night, as late at night was my effective time. Caffeine is great earlier on in the day, but it can obviously affect your sleep, which in turn will affect your ability to focus the next day. I’d therefore take the caffeine suggestion with a pinch of salt, and if you do drink caffeine, then green tea is the broccoli of teas in my opinion. (I say broccoli, as broccoli is a well known super food.)
