Have you ever found yourself in the middle of a conversation and completely forget what it was that you wanted to say? Or have you been faced with an issue around your business that you knew you could find the answer to, but felt so foggy that you couldn’t come up with a decision?
Often times, we think that as entrepreneurs this brain fogginess comes from too many things on our to-do lists, being exhausted from burning the midnight oil, or even over thinking a problem that we’ve been trying to solve for far too long. Mental clarity is vital for pushing you towards the next level of productivity in your business. If you can’t think straight, you can’t act accordingly. And if you don’t act accordingly, you may wind up making some pretty bad business decisions due to this.
Eating a diet rich in B, C and E vitamins can help dramatically boost your energy and mental clarity. Boosting your vitamin C intake helps to support brain health, while getting adequate vitamin E can actually improve cognitive function which aids in thought processing and clear thinking. B Vitamins, particularly B12, maintains healthy nerves needed for quick thought response, as well as red blood cells which carry oxygen to the brain.
