Lately, our circuits are fried. We’re overstimulated + chronically tired. Brain fog is more common. Mental fatigue is in full force.
These days, it's a no brainer... quite literally.
Your cognitive processes are interestingly complex and interconnected. Consistent exposure to stress can burden the brain — raising cortisol, absorbing energy, clouding memory, and hindering our functions.
In fact, since February, search engines have seen a 300% increase in the term: “how to get your brain to focus.”
The mind is resilient, and there are many ways to help improve your focus. Ask Big Pharma or the iPhone app store. But really, no one needs another prescription or more reasons to be glued to the smartphone...
What's the most important question, then? We think it's this: How to improve focus and concentration, naturally.
How can you navigate those mid-afternoon lulls in a safe, healthy and habit-forming way? This month, we’re introducing an array of herbs to revitalize your creative + cognitive powers.
From neuroprotection to mental processing, herbs offer more than a pick-me-up on a sluggish day. When used consistently, plant meds can keep you focused, sharpen your stamina, and improve your overall mental clarity.
Imagine a tincture for alertness, an earthy adaptogen for cerebral centering, or a powder to add to your morning coffee. We've got options. Pick your pleasure.
Fight the fog! Check out our top 3 natural ways to improve focus:
