How to Step Up Your Mental Game
The more you're able to access and unlock your mind's potential, the more you, your personal relationships, and your business activities will soar.

Unfortunately, most of us have never been given clear directions on how improve, optimize, or even just maintain our brain health. In fact, many of us are quietly suffering from mental ailments that hold us back from fully stepping into the arena, such as:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Exhaustion
  • Brain fog
  • Mental and physical sluggishness
  • Irritability
  • Rigid thinking
  • Poor or restless sleep
  • Overwhelming fatigue
These symptoms are so prevalent that most of us have simply learned to cope with them -- but that's a bad idea, says Dr. Michael Lewis, founder of the Brain Health Education and Research Institute. Coping means that your brain and therefore your company, your relationships, and your passions are running far below their potential. Coping means that you're quietly sabotaging the things you care the most about.

Learning to optimize your brain changes you and will leave you feeling more energetic, creative, focused, balanced, playful, and effective.

Dr. Lewis joins Dr. Susanne to share tips for optimizing brain health, nutrition, and physical/mental energy. He also discusses the four supplements that virtually everyone needs (and which additional ones every high-performing individual should be taking).
