Thanks for taking the time to do this series wilt, it is good food for thought and definitely a great way to reinforce certain ideas and put things into perspective!

I will say on the topics of sleep, exercise, and diet, that if you are experiencing mental afflictions such as anxiety, depression, low self esteem/confidence, low energy levels etc, which all certainly affect your ability to think at the table and learn overall, that however much strategy you study, if you are unable to actually absorb and comprehend the information on a deep level because of a preoccupied mind, that no lasting progress can really be made, or at the very least it will be greatly slowed/wiped out when falling back into a C-Game.

It may be more rare and harder to understand for someone who has never experienced how much excessive thinking can hinder your ability to learn, but for someone who has or has had experienced an obsessive/preoccupied mind, these holistic approaches to modify your behavior/body chemistry/thought patterns can certainly be a great starting point to gain control over your emotions in which case after you can focus more intensely on the strategic aspects of the game and start to make real improvements. Just my take.

Great vid and great advice!!! I can definitely 100% relate to what you said when you're going through a down swing.

Nice video keep 'em coming. One thing that I think you didn't mention is playing while feeling hungry or fatigued. Sometimes I play too long sessions and when I get hungry and my energy level drops, so does my game.

Good points and I agree. I've been listening to some podcasts around biohacking and I think there might be more to this than I was giving credit for initially. I just want to make sure people aren't using it as some kind of excuse. If it's a real problem, absolutely get it solved, just make sure it's a real problem.

Great vid. Totally agree. Down swings are really depressing sometimes. I mostly have to play live because online is very scarce now. Sucks not being too many live games in West Virginia. Considered moving to Maryland Live. Need a room mate.
