Nervous System Fitness improves focus by reducing brain fog, increasing access to creativity, and optimizing rest and recovery.
REDUCING BRAIN FOG
Brain fog is that feeling of being mentally fatigued or cloudy. When the nervous system is functioning optimally, brain fog is reduced due to improved communication between the gut and the brain, and improved detoxification and recovery of the body due to increased access to the Ventral Vagal recovery state.
INCREASED ACCESS TO CREATIVITY
In addition to reducing brain fog, neurological fitness can also increase access to creativity. This is because when the nervous system is functioning optimally, it can help to increase blood flow and oxygen to the brain, which can improve cognitive function.
OPTIMIZING REST & RECOVERY
Finally, neurological fitness can optimize rest and recovery. When the nervous system is functioning optimally, it can help to regulate the body’s natural sleep cycles and improve the quality of sleep. This is important because when we are well-rested, we are able to focus better and are less likely to experience brain fog.
BALANCED NERVOUS SYSTEM, FOCUSED MIND
In essence, by improving neurological fitness, we are able to improve our overall cognitive function and reduce mental fatigue.
In the Play state, the Sympathetic and Ventral Vagal responses are in balance. We're alert and focused, but we're also relaxed and in control. This state is beneficial for overall well-being because it allows us to tap into our creativity, problem-solve more effectively, and build strong social bonds. It also builds resistance to the Sympathetic stress response, ensuring that we only experience activation in response to actual threats.
