If you have already read a post or two on this site, you’ll know it’s an understatement to say I’m a big fan of nootropics. Since I started using them nearly a decade ago (at the risk of aging myself), they have been an incredible addition to my life. I’m don’t shy away from telling anyone who’ll listen about it. In fact, that’s why I started BestNootropicsNow.
There are many benefits of hacking your brain, which in the end is what taking smart drugs does. And the positives extend much further than just improving your mental abilities. How much further? Keep reading to find out what I mean!
What Are the Advantages of Brain Hacking?
The main thing you get from hacking your brain should be obvious: an increase in mental abilities. When I use nootropics, my focus goes through the roof. I get more things done and arguably do them better. Distractions, environmental or otherwise, are minimized. I’m able to tackle whatever’s in front of me with much more determination and dedication.
On top of smart drugs helping me with focus and mental discipline, they tend to do a great deal for my memory retention and recall. You know that feeling when something’s on the tip of your tongue, but you just can’t come up with the right word? Since I started hacking my brain, those are few and far between.
Similarly, just as I’m able to remember things better, forming memories has become easier. Often, though not always, I had to go back and re-read a page multiple times to get the gist of it. Brain hacking with nootropics fixed that right up. A single pass is all I need these days.
Hacking More Than Just Mental Abilities
As I eluded to earlier, smart drugs commonly used for neurohacking have benefits beyond just the brain. The right nootropics can reduce anxiety. To a great extent, they can also alleviate stress.
Imagine what happens to your life when you eliminate both those things. If nothing else, I’m sure you’ll sleep better. More restful sleep promotes overall wellness in the body, in the brain and otherwise.
Besides getting more quality sleep, when your mind is clear, free of anxiety and stress, you make better decisions. It’s much easier to say no to crappy food and maintain a better diet or to say no to that extra drink.
I probably don’t need to tell you how vital proper nutrition is to your overall well-being. One of the benefits of a sharper mind is easier sound decision making. That’s something which can help the whole body. And as the body starts functioning better, so does your brain. It’s all a beautiful upward spiral which nootropics can set in motion.
There are many other lesser benefits to hacking the brain. The above are some of the more significant ones I have experienced and should serve as a useful primer on what is possible. And if you’re not sure about using supplements, from brain exercises to eating better, there are many other ways you can hack neurohack. Sometimes fully understanding the benefits of something is harder than doing it. I believe that for many individuals, with brain hacking, that is precisely the case.
