7 Keys to Mental Energy
Anyone who has put in a long period of work, whether at a job or in school, knows there is more than one type of energy. We all know that feeling of being physically awake, but mentally hitting the “snooze” button. The fact is that our brains are complicated, and need both energy and stimulation to keep going at their full potential.
