Don’t Neglect the Obvious: Sleep, Nutrition, and Exercise

You know as well as we do that you need to sleep well, eat right, and exercise for your brain to be in peak condition. We’re not going to scold you, but we are going to present some information you might not have known about your brain’s relationship to your body.

Many tips for mental performance concentrate on extending productivity for a short while after tiredness kicks in, or aiming for a slightly higher peak during a work period. Importantly, all of these increases in performance are relative to your normal or baseline level of functioning. You can often obtain more substantial and more widely effective gains in mental ability by making sure that your baseline performance is at an optimum. Tuning sleep, nutrition, and exercise is one effective way of doing this.
