There are so many trigger points in the body, but there are also scents and herbs that can trigger the brain. So if you are feeling fatigue, tired, exhaustion, lackadaisical, burnout, loss of memory and concentration, eat fresh or cooked Basil, which you can find usually, at any grocery store.

Basil has many healing properties including fighting the flu, gout, coughs, aches and many different exhaustion’s. If you can take the time to get the fresh herb or cook up the herb and add it to a dinner as a garnish on top, (don’t forget to eat this one) I’d say that’s the best method of kick-starting that
trigger in the brain and body.

Basil is also available in aromatherapy, where you can add the scent into your environment without ingesting, most aroma oils are not to be eaten, just enjoyed by scent.

Either method should start the brain to build up energy and give you back some concentration.
