Listen to Hans Zimmer movie soundtracks during deep work to skyrocket your focus. 

Exercise boosts your brain’s dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin levels—improving your focus. 

Go on a 5+ minute walk after you eat to stabilize your blood sugar and prevent an energy crash. 

Your focus sharply declines after 2 hours.

Schedule deep work for 2 hours, then take a 15-minute break. 

Switching between analytical and creative work drains your brain’s energy.

Separate tasks based on their type and only focus on one. 

Take L-Theanine with caffeine to boost your focus. 

Use website blockers like ColdTurkey or Freedom to eliminate distractions. 

Mild dehydration (fluid loss of 1–3%) can impair energy, lower mood, and lead to major losses in memory and brain performance. 

7-8 hours of sleep is the best focus “drug” out there. 

10+ minutes of sunlight exposure in the morning will stimulate your cortisol levels and increase focus. 

AirPod Pros are one of the best investments you can make for your focus. 

Nicotine (not cigarettes) improves brain function, sharpens short-term memory, and increases mental endurance. 

Rewarding yourself after deep work sessions gives you a hit of dopamine and makes your brain enjoy work more. 

Set 1 big goal for each work block, break it into 3 actionable tasks, and focus on 1 task at a time. 

Using a work timer can make you work harder because you know you have a constraint. 

8 hours of sleep will make you more productive than 4 cups of coffee. 

Studies show that cluttered work areas can significantly decrease your concentration. 

Fasting can help you focus by not using energy toward digestion. 

Spend 10 minutes creating email filters to save yourself hours of wasted time. 

Only keep 1-2 browser tabs open at a time to prevent yourself from multitasking. 

A diet rich in pineapple pizza is the key to God-tier levels of focus (don’t argue with me on this).
