Foods That Will Keep Your Mind Focused and Words Flowing

When it comes to ultimate concentration and writing, it is no question that food can play a big part. As writers and creatives, it is important to be mindful of our food so we can sustain energy, ideas, and inspiration. High vibrational foods will keep your creative and intuitive juices flowing. Sometimes when I am writing, snacking comes with the process. This is not the best habit to have, but I’ve started to be more mindful of my snacks. 

On Pages & Pens we talk about writing and wellness. This week, I am sharing some of the top foods that will help you focus and keep your brain function in top shape.
