Foods That Can Help You Find a Little Focus

By Genevieve Cunningham

Focus. Why is it so hard? Sometimes it seems that concentrating on the task at hand is just incredibly difficult. No matter how hard we try, we can't pay attention to whatever we're supposed to be doing. While there are many reasons that this may happen, one reason may actually be your diet. Eating the wrong foods can hamper your ability to concentrate. If you need to improve your focus, take a look at these foods to add to your diet as soon as today.

Healthy Oils

Certain oils can be very good for the brain (and body as a whole!). Try adding olive oil, coconut oil, or sunflower seed oil to your diet. You can use these for cooking, or you can even take them by the spoonful if you can stomach the flavor and texture. These oils can provide healthy fats to the synapses in the brain, thus improving cognitive function and enhancing focus every day.

Healthy Fish

Healthy fish such as salmon, mackerel, and mahi mahi are great for boosting the health of the brain. These fish, along with many others, contain omega-3 fatty acids. This nutrient is another that protects and enhances the synapses in the brain. They lubricate and energize, two things that are necessary for healthy brain function. When you eat these kinds of fish, it can improve overall cognitive ability and help you concentrate on a regular basis.

Dark Leafy Greens

Dark leafy greens are good for the body as a whole. Foods such as spinach, lettuce, and kale contain high amounts of protein as well as Vitamin C. They're great for digestion, the heart, circulation, and the brain. A small salad with your dinner meal can improve your basic health including your mind. It's a super simple way to keep your entire body healthier, more balanced, and focused on the task at hand

You definitely are what you eat. If you want to be focused, you have to eat foods that help you keep your concentration. If you eat junk, you'll be more easily distracted and off task. If your diet is full of vitamins and minerals, your brain will work in a more efficient manner. Use these foods to get started, and you may find more focus and higher productivity than you've seen in years.
