Your state of mind when approaching a new task can be the difference between getting a job done and not. We all know the feeling of frantically tiptoeing around a to-do list, mind jittering, yet every time you sit down to get ‘it’ done, you just can’t seem to grasp and maintain a steady stream of focus. So why is that? Well, it’s a culmination of toxin build-up, unhealthy brain cells, and a depletion of vital chemical resources in the brain.

Why can't I focus?
In order for your ticker to keep functioning at its optimal, it needs to detoxify and cleanse by flushing said toxins away in your blood. This happens when you sleep, which is why a good, smartly timed nap can feel so refreshing! A study in the journal Science showed brain cells shrink during sleep in order to allow more space between them, so fluid can literally wash the brain clean.

Which part of the brain deals with thinking?
Our brains contain billions of nerve cells (neurons) which communicate with each other through electrical impulses. These impulses release neurotransmitters—chemicals that act as messengers. Maintaining the correct levels of neurotransmitters in the right place at the right time is also vital for the brain to work effectively. The mental highs and lows of daily life which alter the way you think, feel and behave can all tip the balance, and it’s these transient fluctuations that affect your focus and ability to retain information. While maintaining a healthy diet and managing stress levels are vital components for keeping the equilibrium, other factors such as hormonal changes are also to blame.

What supplements help with focus and concentration?
Having occasional trouble concentrating is a relatively normal, albeit irritating occurrence for most people. Everyone knows that when your concentration is at its highest, you work easier, faster, and better. People often turn to prescription drugs, but these hyper stimulants tend to encourage sleeplessness and agitation, are not devoid of side effects and can cause a ‘crash’ when they eventually wear off.
