without over doing it.
seriously, the days that i have 1 strong cup of coffee i actually shower, move my body and can concentrate better.
i know several people on another board that do major coffee throughout the day. i am assuming they built-up to that though.
when i was teaching it really gave me energy and focus to start the day.
i also agree w/jane. exercise the brain if you can. hard i know. wish i could do some of that myself these days. still, i think there has been recent research about the 'plasticity' of the brain when it's subject to learning new things which leads to positive cognitive health.
congrats going back to school. good luck.
ps i have never tried ritalin/etc. so, maybe my coffee suggestion is out-of-place in this discussion.
