We live in an age where distractions seem endless – from email to social media to our need to multitask, staying focused can seem daunting and difficult. Luckily, regardless of whether you are working from home and prone to distractions like family or household tasks, or you’re in an office environment rife with distractions from co-workers, the ability to stay focused is a skill that can be developed and honed. In this article, we look at what helps your brain focus, as well as foods to increase concentration and focus.

What helps your brain focus?

There are several small lifestyle changes that you can make to help you achieve a better sense of focus:

Minimize distractions

Turn off your cell phone and social media notifications. In fact, leaving your phone in another room if you don’t need it could work wonders for helping your concentration.


Exercising at the beginning of the day does more than just benefit your body – it could also increase your ability to focus and concentrate throughout the day.*

Get enough sleep

Let’s face it: when you’re tired, your brain just isn’t performing optimally. Ensuring you get your 8 hours of shut-eye nightly could help achieve maximum focus.*

Practicing mindfulness

When you are mindful, you are focusing attention on the present moment. While this may seem difficult at first, practicing for just a few minutes a day by closing your eyes and focusing on your breath could help long-term concentration.*

Eat a healthy diet full of brain-boosting foods

According to Harvard Medical School, a Mediterranean-style diet has been shown to support brain health and may also impact your ability to focus.*

Foods to increase concentration and focus

When you eat a Mediterranean-style diet, you are likely focusing on a variety of healthy fats that could support your brain health. In fact, your brain requires healthy fats to function properly and optimally, so adding foods to improve concentration and focus into your diet may be just the ticket for optimizing your cognitive health.* Consider trying:

Fatty fish

High in omega-3 fatty acids, oily fish like tuna, salmon, sardines, or mackerel may boost brain function due to increased blood flow in the brain from the omega-3s which could lead to better cognitive abilities.


Add in one avocado per day to reap benefits like supported or enhanced cognitive skills.


Chock-full of protein, vitamin E, and healthy fats, regular consumption of nuts may protect healthy brain function. Walnuts specifically have been shown to improve memory, according to Harvard.

Lion’s Mane mushrooms

While not a healthy fat, Lion’s Mane is a nootropic, which means it helps activate and clear the mind for optimal cognitive performance. Because of this, Lion’s Mane mushrooms have gained popularity as a supplement to help with focus and mental clarity, even to a foggy, restless mind, and does so without containing any stimulants.*


What is Lion’s Mane mushroom powder?

Lion’s Mane mushroom powder may just be the most convenient way to get all of the benefits of the Lion’s Mane mushroom!

Made from dried and ground whole mushrooms, Lion’s Mane Mushroom powder can be added to just about anything from warm drinks to soups to smoothies, so you can easily incorporate it into your daily routine.

When shopping for a Lion’s Mane mushroom powder, always check the labels. They should be transparent, and should not contain sugar or natural sweeteners, caffeine, gluten, dairy, or soy. You’ll also want to ensure your product is certified organic and of the highest quality. The Lion’s Mane mushroom powder you choose should contain high levels of beta-glucans and low levels of starch, with clean and pure ingredients to help deliver the health-promoting compounds and nothing extra.

Lion’s mane mushroom brain benefits

Lion’s Mane mushroom powders are made of dried and ground whole mushrooms, including the mushroom mycelium (the part of the mushroom that grows underground – or in other words, the root structure of the mushroom.) The mycelium is a critical component of these powders because it produces nutritional compounds which include a variety of health benefits.

Rritual’s Lion’s Mane mushroom powder is also enhanced with the adaptogen Rhodiola root, a trusted herb for its ability to help maintain peak cognitive performance and support the body’s response to and recovery from stress.* It’s basically a supercharged combination, crafted to give you a gentle kickstart and help you:

  • Cultivate & enhance creativity, clarity of thought, and ability to focus*
  • Support healthy brain functioning including concentration and recall*
  • Sharpen mental focus and productivity*
  • Calm a restless mind and body*

    How much Lion’s Mane should I take?

    It’s good to think of your Lion’s Mane powder much like an energy boost, or an aid for productivity - it may help you feel more energized, alert, and focused.*

    Much like using any other herbal supplement, or other superfood mushroom mix, the health-benefiting effects can take time to build up in your system.* By incorporating it into your routine regularly, you will see the maximum benefits.*

    We recommend consuming Lion’s Mane anytime from morning until early afternoon, but please do start slowly. Try adding the powder to your food or beverage once every second day for two weeks. You can then move up to once daily if it feels right for your body. Always consult your doctor before beginning a new regimen.
