Boost Your Physical Mental Energy.

Mental Energy and Focus
Reading Time: 7 minutes

One of the hardest things for us to do in these busy times is to stop and take a breath. That is what most goal-oriented people need to do to find balance in their lives.

People who are grateful for the things that they have in life and prepare for the negative things that are going to happen will be better equipped to handle the stresses that life brings.

Focusing on being grateful will generate a positive attitude in your mind, and will keep your mental energy level up!

This focus can be more natural when you surround yourself with like-minded people. Sometimes we do not have that option and have to grin and bear it until we can get to a safe place.

In this busy time, people can easily find themselves overwhelmed with too many details and goals that they feel are a “must be done” activity. The answer to this situation is organization and setting priorities.

If the organization is not your strong suit find someone who is very organized and ask them for some simple pointers, if they know you they probably already have some thoughts on the subject.

In this, politically correct society that we live in many people will now offer you their real opinions until you permit them or ask a direct question. It is worth the effort to get the assistance that you need.

Mental energy is going to affect how people approach every aspect of their lives, the attitudes towards working out and maintaining a healthy diet are critical to how well they stick to the plan.

How Does Mental Health Affect Physical Health?

Maintaining the right mental attitude is going to have a significant impact on a person’s physical health by either enabling them to follow their plan.

Some times people know what they need to do, but something in their minds derails their plans. The thoughts could be coming from several influencers; typically it is the person talking themselves out of the program.

How many times has this happened to you? I know that for me it happens all the time and it is something to identify and dealt with accordingly.

The best method for me is too really focus on the things that are good for healthy eating and exercising correctly. These are not new ideas; most of them we hear about all the time. Finding the ones that work for you and sticking with them is the program that will ultimately lead to success.

One of the things that are very important to do when you are busy is to make time to go outside if you are cooped up in an office for hours during the day. This activity is something difficult for people who have too many meetings scheduled during the day.

The Best Food for Mental Focus.

Once you get some activity in your life and have some time built in for some exercise, remember to make it fun so that it does not feel like you are doing a task for work.

Stimulate your mind by challenging yourself in some way that is not normal for you. When the brain gets challenged it will respond by creating new pathways, and the difficult task becomes more comfortable, these new skills will assist in other areas of your life.

Foods that you can incorporate into your diet to improve your mental energy and general mental health care are some same things that we already know are good for us.

• Blueberries boost mental energy and focus for up to five hours after eating them and contain a host of anti-oxidants that also give additional benefits to increased focus like protecting against cancer.

• Green Tea has caffeine which boosts energy for the whole body and helps to provide mental focus as well.

• Avocados help the entire body by enhancing blood flow which will help the brain get the essential vitamins and minerals that it needs to function correctly.

• Leaky green vegetables are full of antioxidants and carotenoids which help the brain. Think about that the next time you are eating your salad!

• Fatty fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids that aid in memory, mental performance and behavior functions.

• Dark Chocolate contains magnesium which helps to reduce stress by releasing more endorphins and serotonin into the bloodstream. It is better to consume in small amounts daily rather than in large portions.

• Flax seeds and nuts are good sources of vitamins and minerals which are suitable for the whole body.

• Water provides the brain with the electrical energy for all the brain functions. The whole body functions better when it is hydrated, and proper hydration is proven to increase mental focus as well as being able to think faster.

Water is so critical to every system in the body, and in the springtime, it is so important to keep yourself hydrated properly. Raising awareness is the best way to get this message out to people.

How Exercise Affects Your Mental Health.

Along with proper hydration, people need to get enough exercise to feel better and to improve their mental health as well.

One of the ways that exercise is going to help a person is the fact that when they complete a task that they set as a goal, they are going to feel better about themselves.

The main reason that people continue to exercise is the sense of well-being that they get from the activity. If a person does not make this connection to the exercise activity, then it can become something that they think is a waste of time and increase in pain to the body.

This connection in thought is something that I am working on in my life and my struggles over the years have been to keep the right priority on each of the areas of life, which means that it is not easy to keep everything in balance.

Sometimes there is ample time to get all the things done that I want to, but most of the time life gets too busy to do all the activities and more often what seems to get cut is the exercise.

Walk more
Walk more for better mental focus.

What I have been focusing on the past six months is to increase my exercise in my daily routine. Getting up and walking somewhere anytime the need pops up. This method increases the steps, and before you realize it, you have the actions you desire.

Taking a brisk walk also help to clear the mind and get the mental focus back on the job at hand. Sometimes when we get stuck behind a desk for too long, it is harder to maintain the correct mental clarity.

What Can a Person DO to Maintain Good Mental Energy?

Eating a healthy diet is going to be the best way to start addressing a person’s mental clarity and their general sense of well-being.

Taking an excellent supplement in addition to maintaining a healthy diet is like an insurance policy for your health.

An excellent supplement will have all the minerals and vitamins that you need to have the mental clarity and the energy to function all day properly.

The ingredients in the supplement must be of the best quality, so that is gets absorbed by the body and does what it is supposed to do.

Conclusion

It is possible for people to increase their mental energy by having a positive attitude in the face of all the things that life presents.

There are going to best test that people will endure on this journey, the way that people decide to handle it is going to determine how well they cope.

Plan A,B,C

All the constant change is one of the most significant issues that people have to face in life. Roll with the punches, and it will not hurt so bad.

Find the humor in every situation and life will be more pleasant. The mental energy that comes from the sense of well-being in a person is worth more to people than the cost of things like supplements or buying the right foods to support a healthy diet.

  1. The effects of mental health cannot be overemphasized. It affects our productivity in our various works and our relationship with other people at home. 

    As you rightly noted, the food that we eat can determine the state of our mental health as these food releases some chemical substances that will either help us to be better by supplying us with mental energy or aggravate our problem by draining the energy from us. 

    However, if the right mental attitude is not employed, all these suggestions may become void as it is the foundation on which our mental health is built.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to read the article and sharing your thoughts on the topic, sometimes keeping the correct attitude is the hardest thing to do. 

      When people find themselves struggling with their views, they need to take a break and get their minds back to the right mindset.

  2. Not many people make the connection between physical and mental well-being. 

    That is a person wants to maintain a healthy exercise and eating routine, the motivation needs to be there, and motivation is hard to come by without a stable sense of mental clarity about what your goal is in that regard. 

    Without that clarity of focus, more likely, as I’ve often done, we’ll find excuses to put off exercise today. “I don’t feel like it today; I’ll make up for it tomorrow.”

    As you point out, the quality of what we stuff into our face daily has a significant impact on the energy supply we need to maintain the mental focus to do the physical exercise. 

    It’s a triangle of interdependent components.  Physical discipline requires mental discipline. Mental control requires dietary discipline. 

    Dietary restraint reinforces our understanding that it’s the vital source of strength that drives everything else. 

    Thank you for a great read in this article!

  3. Helpful post! This post cause me to take up again so of my neglected commitment to boosting my physical, mental energy. I have been engaging in some of this exercise listed since my undergraduate days, and it’s has been producing excellent results. 

    In this busy time, people can easily find themselves overwhelmed with too many details and goals that they feel are a “must be done” activity. The answer to this situation is organization and setting priorities. 

    Mental energy affects how people’s approach every aspect of their lives, the attitudes towards working out and maintaining a healthy diet are critical to how well they stick to the plan, focus, and good food significantly improve it.

    1. Glad that this post was exciting and helped you to realize that you need to make some adjustments to your daily routines. It is not easy to do, but the rewards are great for those who take on the challenge!

      I wish you the best of luck in your efforts to get back to the basics.

  4. Wow,  I am very impressed after reading about this product Sustain! I also have a website that promotes healthy eating and vitamin supplementation, and Sustain seems to have all the bases covered very impressive. 

    I didn’t notice the dosage amount for each vitamin, but I saw Sustain also has none in it, and I have heard a lot of good things about it alone!

    After you sign up how much is a bottle and how many capsules do you get. I would say this is the complete vitamin I have seen and I have been taking vitamins since I was 19 years old and this December I will be 69, and I feel real good optimum blood pressure, cholesterol, etc.

    It’s essential to get enough vitamins for your health, and sometimes you don’t need that much and no GMO foods all organic if possible and with one sustain pill I think it’s an excellent supplement and it takes the guesswork out of wondering which vitamins should I choose!

    1. Thank you for your comments on Sustain; it has all of the ingredients that a person needs, and I have been happy with it for almost five years now! 

      There is some excellent new that I just found out today on the price of the Sustain, Avisae has reduced the amount for retail from $80 to $50 per bottle retail, and the Associate’s price is $42.5 per bottle.

      Also, the cost to get started as an Associate is just $29.95 for someone who wants to get familiar with the company and the Avisae products.

  5. Great information and so true.  I am usually an upbeat, positive person.  I have had a few things happen with my health in recent months, and this has changed everything for me.  

    I can see that mental health most definitely affects physical health.  It is happening to me right now.   You are right; exercise does help.  

    My doctor says that mitochondria give us energy. People get older; they produce fewer mitochondria, she said that exercise, even just walking a brisk walk 30 minutes a day brings up the mitochondria which provide energy 🙂

    1. Thank you for your comments, and you are right that getting some exercise is the best way to get the blood pumping and change the way you are looking at a problem.

  6. There is one fact am too sure of when it comes to the reality of life. Life is 10% of what happens to us and 90% of how we react to it. 

    When we respond well and positively at what life throws at us, we will be able to stay mentally fit but when we let depression to creep in, we will become psychologically affected and this, in turn, affects our overall health and mental health. 

    Addition to this is also the consumption of a healthy diet and exercise plus drinking of water adequately will also enable us always to stay fit and absent from certain diseases which might affect the overall health.  

    1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this topic, and a good point on how we react to the changes life presents to us. We cannot change the circumstances, in most cases, but we can control the way that we respond to those changes.

  7. I am a very busy person, and I often find myself exhausted both physically and mentally. I will look to apply the tips written in this article to help me recover my energy quicker, and I hope it will also lead to higher productivity in my workplace. Thanks for a well thought out and well-written article. 

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment and glad that you enjoyed the article. Hope that you find it useful in getting to be more productive at your work.

  8. Being at an age where stress becomes a big factor is a huge reason why I eat right and exercise daily. And I mean daily. I loved the fact you included water in this post for mental health because I can tell you firsthand this is a fact, as I consume over a gallon a day. 

    As for exercise, it’s a daily thing. Fortunately, the weather is breaking up here in Northern West Virginia, and there is a slew of trails and local tracks I can get some excellent cardio in instead of being stuck inside a gym the whole time as is the case in the winter.

    By combining my eating habits with exercise, I’m rarely if ever stressed. In fact, instead of dreading, I wake up looking forward to what each day will bring, even if it’s a Monday morning with a full week of work ahead of me. Knowing that there are positive things in my life that I can control makes each day just as if not more exciting than the previous. 

    1. Thank you for sharing your experiences with diet and exercise. Explaining how your diet and exercise routines help you to maintain a good mental health state, is a great incentive for others to think about incorporating these things into their lives. 

  9. Mental energy is essential to having a good sense of well-being. Psychological stress is so real and can be challenging to deal with in life.   Thank goodness for this article which has listed a few ways we can all deal with mental stress. 

    One of the ways I deal with psychological stress for me is by engaging my self with some form of exercise and surrounding or doing the things I love. I could watch movies, play games and before I know it, it’s all gone… an excellent article by the way
