More focus and better memory


To improve focus and memory, there are several science-based tools and insights shared by and his guests on the :

For Memory and Attention:

  • Working Memory: Understanding and improving working memory is another key to developing better focus and attention. There are various tools to improve this cognitive ability, from prescriptions for ADHD to behavioral and supplement-based tools, which can work synergistically 2.

For Improved Focus:

  • Neurochemicals: Focus and concentration can be improved by understanding the role of neurochemicals. Epinephrine/adrenaline, acetylcholine, and dopamine play crucial roles in focus and motivation. The release of these chemicals is necessary for ongoing focus 3.

  • Refocusing Meditation: Training your brain through a meditation practice that includes constantly refocusing on the breath or a specific point can significantly enhance concentration abilities 4.

Broader Tips for Brain Health:

  • Exercise: Regular physical activity releases beneficial neurochemicals like dopamine, serotonin, noradrenaline, and BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor), which improve cognitive functions, including memory and attention 5.
