Getting the right nutrients in your body first thing in the morning is hugely beneficial when it comes to maintaining focus throughout the day.
Eating a wide variety of wholegrains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and legumes throughout the day ensures that blood sugar levels are stable and provides the brain with healthy fats, carbohydrates, protein, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. These all work synergistically to promote brain health, focus, memory, concentration, and health in general.
Add an easy-to-achieve goal to your to-do list. The satisfaction of ticking off a small task is linked with a flood of dopamine.
Each time your brain gets a whiff of this rewarding neurotransmitter, it will want you to repeat the associated behaviour.
Crosswords and other puzzles are a handy way to pass the time, but they’re also incredibly useful in improving memory and brain function.
Your brain loves these kind of small victories, and it can help make life’s larger problems somehow seem easier to tackle. What’s more, those little bursts of joy at finishing a puzzle can help calm your mind, in much the same way that physical exercise can mentally relax you too.
By gaining awareness and not slipping into ‘autopilot’ in your morning routine, you are better able to take care of your needs throughout the day.
This will help you with lowering stress levels. If you’re unsure where to begin, use apps that have a large library of guided meditation practices.
Comprehensive and dedicated science exists on the positive mental effects of venturing outdoors and spending time in nature.
Heading out into nature in the morning, then, could benefit your concentration.
Anxiety and stress will sabotage your ability to stay focused. But keeping a record of your thoughts on paper is a wonderful way to to combat stress and anxiety.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
