  • How do you effectively study to retain information long-term?

    No matter what age and stage you’re in, sometimes you’re presented with a situation where you have to learn a lot of information in a short period of time.

It usually disappears.

  • How do you unleash your untapped mental energy to become mentally vibrant and cognitively alive?

    Energy is a key component in the Kwik Brain motivation formula: Purpose x Energy x S3 (small, simple steps) = Motivation. Without energy, you’re going to have a much harder time finding the motivation to plow through difficult situations and accomplish all the things you want to do.

He is a Clinical Psychologist, host of the podcast Sleep Success and serves on the clinical advisory board of The Dr. Oz Show.

    If you’re like many people, the stress of the last few years may have increased your brain fog and mental fatigue like never before. Listen in as Michael talks about the different types of energy, how you can track your energy levels, and make small adjustments throughout the day to unleash your maximum energy potential.
