Do you need something to sharpen focus and help with eye strain? In this article, I’ll share a few tips and tricks for how to improve focus & vision. 

There’s no reason why your otherworldly goals should be held hostage by silly things like physical limitations. Those are for average people. You aren’t average.

Why Eye Health and Mental Clarity Matter

Most of us aren’t fitness models. We can’t spend all our time in the gym. And, of course, we have to make enough money to put food to put on the table — or into Tupperware. Which means we have to do things like work.

That work often includes 40+ hours staring at phones, laptops, tablets, etc. This might sound crazy, but that much time can take a toll on your mental sharpness, memory, and (obviously) eye health. 

How often do you find yourself rubbing your strained eyes, trying to cram for a deadline and coming up with nothing? Whether it’s studying for a test, writing an article, punching numbers, or trying to come up with the ultimate IG caption to go with your selfie, you need all the help you can get in the age of tech.

Hacking Focus For Brain Health

  1. Stay Hydrated: We’re about 60% water. Studies have shown that even a small amount of dehydration can impair focus. Shoot for (minimally) 8 glasses of 8 ounces a day. Emphasis on minimally.
  2. Sleep: I don’t care how much you have to do. Start sleeping. Very few of us can afford 8-9 hours a day, but get as much as you realistically can. 4 hours won’t cut it. Studies have shown that people who slept 6 hours or less a night experience noticeable loss in focus and productivity (and that’s not even counting all the other negative side effects of sleeplessness). 
  3. Eat Well: Uh, duh. Do me a favor and try this simple experiment:
    1. Day one: Go to your favorite fast food place, order up, then have a tiny dessert. Wait an hour. See how your focus is.
    2. Day two: eat whole foods throughout the day. Try a few whole eggs and maybe a slice of toast with some avocado on it for breakfast. BUCK FEED for a snack, then a healthy lunch of protein, veggies, and complex carbs. Afternoon, try some almonds. And again, see how your focus is.
    3. Day three: “I told you so.” (Check out this article for eating low-carb for cognitive function.)
  4. Exercise your body: It took the world a while to figure out exercise isn’t just for vanity, but at least they figured it out. Research has shown exercise can improve concentration. The increase in regular blood flow also means more cerebral blood flow. Do some cardio, and throw in pump workouts.
  5. Exercise your mind: Read a book; it can be nonfiction or fiction but a good blend of both is recommended since the brain benefits from reading fiction, and learning new tricks from non-fiction self-improvement books is always a bonus. 
    1. Try out some of the many brain training apps on your phone
    2. Download a word of the day app.
    3. Pick up an instrument and take lessons for three weeks until discovering learning an instrument is difficult, then promptly give up. 
  6. Get enough vitamins and minerals: Fish Oils like omega-3 fatty acids. Vitamin B’s. Zinc. AlphaGPC. Vitamins and minerals (big surprise) play a major role in cognitive function. 

Hacking Sight For Eye Health

  1. Eat well: Things like omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon, throw in red peppers for Vitamin C, nuts for Vitamin E.
  2. Look away from the screen: Yeah…right…just go ahead and stop staring at the computer screen. You know, that one you have to use to make your living. Still everyone can turn off the phone an hour before bed. Your ego can wait to be validated by all those IG likes, trust me.
  3. Eyewear: Blue-light filter glasses. Google them. They’re incredible. And, for all you other fitness enthusiasts who are sick of people assuming you’re all brawn and no brain, I’m telling you…glasses are cheat codes.
  4. Exercise: I know. That sounds unrelated and obvious — “a supplement company telling me to hit the gym, how original. I get it.” Well, guess what. You know that disease called Type 2 Diabetes? It can actually damage the tiny blood vessels in the eyes. Too much sugar in the bloodstream injures the delicate walls in arteries. There’s this thing called diabetic retinopathy, where blood fluid leaks out from the arteries and into the retinas –light-sensitive at the back of your eyes– and, surprise, harms your vision. 
  5. Get enough key vitamins and minerals: Copper, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E

Logan Peterson

Logan Peterson is an avid writer and an unprofessional, non-competitive bodybuilder. Logan has several degrees, all of which he made up to sound more credible (for obvious reasons, Legal said he can’t list them). In truth, he simply has an insatiable curiosity. After eleven years of obsessive research, he knows too much about fitness, nutrition, and supplementation for his own good. Despite all appearances, he’s fiercely nerdy. Outside of fitness, his passions are reading and writing; his genre interests run the gamut from litrpg to satire. Due to ADHD, he’s currently working on several novels, and will likely publish all of them at once. And yes, he wrote his own bio...in third person.
