6. Fasting state

Primary objective early in the day is to get into a mode of focus and alertness, so we can get work done. This can be achieved by fasting.

Fasting works to create a heightened state of alertness and a calm brain state. Fasting increases levels of Adrenaline, also referred by Epinephrine in brain and body. When our levels of Adrenaline and Epinephrine are increased, we can learn better, focus better. Y

High levels of Adrenaline may feel like stress and panic. But in its optimal range, Adrenaline provides a heightened sense of focus and improved ability to process and retain information.
