Release Date - November 2013

Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

Become a Mental Athlete is a very short, easy-to-follow guide into giving your brain a workout. Each chapter is short, spanning only a few pages per topic. Topics include:

  • Building mental stamina 
  • Decision making
  • Exercise
  • Nutrition
  • Pattern recognition
  • Programs/software designed to help improve memory skills
  • Sleep
  • Stress management
For me, this material is all common sense. Perhaps my job writing press releases and blog for some medical professionals has me a little more in tune with this subject, but everything came down to being things people already know. Omega 3 fatty acids are essential for brain health. Stress isn't good for the mind or body. Sleep is important for your mental health.

If those subjects seem like things you never knew, I think you'll find Become a Mental Athlete to be a valuable read. Otherwise, I doubt you'll find any content you didn't already know.
