Our brain is like a battery. Every time it needs to be recharged, our battery gets sucked out when we work. To perform better we need to recharge our battery.

Remember the Ancient age, we were all hunter-gathers. Our job was to basically collect food and survive. We used to walk, run, jump. We weren’t screen tappers or pencil pushers. To recharge our battery, all we have to eat, take a break, exercise.
