It is rumored that as humanity progresses, our brain function will operate like the physical body of someone in the Mega Man Triathlon. In the relatively recent past, being capable of heavy lifting and having dexterity, quick reflexes, and stamina were crucial to both survival and making a living. Presently, much of our lives are relying on high brain functionality, and supplements are starting to make their way into the conversation about optimal brain health.
Technology development requires high attention to detail, the ability to quickly analyze and make a decision, and to absorb, remember, and utilize increasing amounts of information. Currently, many companies are working on developing various computer-brain integrations to both improve the lives of those with disabilities and also enhance and surpass our current mental capabilities.
We have begun to acknowledge, no matter how slowly, that increasing brain function is vital in how we care for ourselves. As we start to feel the stress on our brains to handle our jobs, families, external stimuli, and an increasingly technological society, we are seeking more ways to enhance our brain through supplements.
COULD I BE “BURNED OUT”?
Life often comes filled with high-demand situations. Even positive events can create stress. Over time, this stress accumulates, and we start to feel exhausted or “burned out.” Often when we think of exhaustion, we only think of the physical symptoms:
- Appetite changes
- Increased illnesses or infections
We may not always realize the symptoms of mental exhaustion. Mental exhaustion is considered to be created from long-term stress; it produces physical and emotional symptoms, which later display themselves in specific behaviors.
EMOTIONAL SYMPTOMS OF MENTAL EXHAUSTION
Our emotions also stem from our brain. They are inexplicably linked. When mental exhaustion sinks in, you may see symptoms such as:
- Anxiety and depression
- Feeling powerless or hopeless
- More cynical or bitter
- More negative attitude
