Dr. R.L. Kaplan provides the following advice on how to maintain energy and mental acuity in the Smartkit: Student Guidebook:
Eating Brain Food – Brain structure and function is markedly affected by what you eat. Neuroscientific studies indicate meals that follow a carbohydrate to protein ration of 1:1 allow for maximal productivity and mental efficiency. Feed your brain vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals and stimulate your brain instead of merely sustaining it. A light meal that starts with a variety of fresh fruit, followed by nuts and seeds coupled with vegetable juice can offer the mental energy and clarity you need to make through a busy and stressful day.
Increase the neurochemicals of concentration- During a mid-day break, engage in aerobic exercise by taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Even a short burst of exercise increases brain catecholamine levels which in turn boost ability to concentrate and focus. These are the same brain chemicals that Ritalin-like stimulants work on.
Maintain Peak Mental Performance by recharging your brain - The scientific benefits of napping are mounting. Numerous studies have shown a mere 15 minute nap after lunch boosts mental performance, increases physiological and subjective alertness, and improves mood - regardless of how much sleep you had the night before.
“Mental fatigue is common among almost all workers and across all job types,” said Dr. R.L. Kaplan. “The important thing to remember is that the easiest tweaks of your daily routine can provide huge benefits in mental sharpness and overall energy.”
