Reach your Goals in 2017 with Modafinil

Successfully recovered from your New Year’s festivities? The start of a new year is a great time to get your ducks in a row and make plans. With your hangover gone now’s the time to set your 2017 agenda with some New Year’s Resolutions. Whether you have big goals or small ones, those objectives help you organize your life and accomplish greater things.

Yet, if you’re like most people, you’ve made resolutions at one point or another and then failed to fulfill them. Nobody’s perfect. Don’t let previous failures keep you from glory in 2017! All you need is a little extra commitment. Modafinil can help you reach your goals. Let’s look at some of the most common goals that modafinil can help you with.

#1 2017 Goal: Save Money / Pay off debt

We’d all like to pay off some debt or save up for a big purchase. Maybe it’s a house or a new car. A holiday abroad. Whatever the case is, saving money always sounds easier than it really is. Modafinil can make a difference in two phases of this game.

First off, you need to know your finances. This can be hard for some people. If your income varies from day to day, common for people in the service industry, you need to get into a habit of recording what comes in and what goes out. Salaried workers have it easier. Regardless of your circumstances, take some modafinil and then take charge! Nothing like the focus of modafinil to help you map out your money in an extremely detailed manner.

And when it comes to the actual savings? Modafinil’s cheaper than your daily cup of coffee. If Starbucks is stealing your income, switch it out with modafinil.

Best part? Modafinil will get you to produce more, making it easier to earn more and reach your savings goals.

#2 2017 Goal: Lose weight / Get in shape

Drive up to any gym after January 1st and you’ll see a full parking lot. Come back in February and it’ll be empty. The gym is work. It’s tough. Diet and exercise are two ugly truths we have to face in order to get in shape. If your goal is to drop a few pounds, modafinil could be key to helping you out.

For starters, Modafinil curbs your appetite. Mental Health Daily has a great article on all the ways modafinil can contribute to your weight loss plans. Eating less is a big one. You’ll still feel hungry and need to eat, but you’re more likely to eat less. Starving yourself only shuts down your metabolism. You have to keep eating, but in moderation. Modafinil-eration anyone?

And that energy boost you’ll get helps you work out longer and harder. See better results in less time as you make those workouts count. The added focus helps with form and concentration on your exercises. Great if you lift.

If your goal is to get in shape, modafinil can help you.

#3 2017 Goal: Get an education

Maybe you just finished high school and you’re thinking about entering university. Or perhaps you’re a working adult whose career isn’t moving forward fast enough. In either case, getting an education is one of the best goals you can have. But it can be tough. Universities are increasingly competitive. Students put in long hours preparing for tests and completing assignments. Especially for the working professional who wants to get ahead, the extra load of university work can be daunting.

There’s a reason modafinil is mostly consumed by students: It helps. You’ll get the focus you need to concentrate on your classes. The energy will help you work and study at the same time. And, as studies show, you’ll do it all better.

Make 2017 the year of you. The year of success. With some hard work and some modafinil to make it easier, you’ll find yourself looking back on a great year as you reached your goals. Next year’s champagne will be special.

Using Modafinil to Lose Weight

One frequently reported side effect of modafinil is appetite suppression or in laymen’s terms, not feeling hungry. So is it possible to lose weight by using modafinil? The answer is a resounding “Yes”, but only if you do it right. There are some obstacles to making this work well.

The first issue is that you still need to eat. It might seem strange to talk about eating when the title is losing weight, but it’s extremely important. If your decreased appetite causes you not to eat at all, your metabolism will decline. In addition, this is incredibly unhealthy because you aren’t giving your body the nutrients it needs to run at top form. Modafinil might make you wakeful and alert, but it is no substitute for natural energy from food. The key to solving this problem is to eat small, light portions several times a day. This is what nutritionists already recommend, but people find it difficult to control their portions.  Modafinil will make that easy by curbing your appetite and allowing you to eat less.

In order to properly digest the food you do eat you’re going to have to stay well hydrated. Without water, the gastrointestinal system’s function declines, which can lead to constipation. I mention this because modafinil tends to excrete water from your body much faster than normal. You’ll probably find yourself visiting the restroom more often when you take modafinil. This is perfectly normal, but those fluids need to be replaced. Stay lubed up, keep the water flowing, and you should be able to process everything quite naturally.

So you’ve packed your lunch with small snacks to eat throughout the day, you’ve got a big bottle of water ready to go, you’re taking your pill every day, but you’re not losing weight. How come?

One of two things could be happening here and you need to be sure you’re being brutally honest with yourself. For one, are you eating the right types of foods throughout the day? A donut isn’t the right type of snack, for instance. If you’re packing heaps of calories into your mini-meals then you aren’t going to see any results at all. Modafinil doesn’t burn calories, it just makes you less likely to want to put things in your mouth.

Another potential obstacle is the “rebound effect”. Eventually modafinil wears off, likely after at least 12 hours. This can also inconveniently be right around the time you pull into your driveway and get home. If you haven’t eaten much during the day then when the pill’s effect subsides you might feel famished. That can cause you to “double down” so to speak and eat even more than you intended. So what can you do if this happens to you?

A good idea is to break up your dose into two smaller ones. If 200mg works for you, take 100mg first thing in the morning as you normally would. Then, after a few hours, take the rest. This will extend the duration of the effects later into the evening while keeping them light enough to allow you to fall asleep at a reasonable hour. If you take a large dose too late you’ll lie awake staring at your ceiling, and nobody wants that. But if you took 100mg at 10 AM, most of it will be out of your system by 10 PM, at which point you’d have less than 50mg in your body and would likely be able to rest well.

There truly is no such thing as a magic pill that’ll cause you to shed those extra pounds. Modafinil simply suppresses appetite, which means you still need to exercise some self-control when it comes to what you eat and when. Speaking of exercise, you should absolutely try to incorporate that into your routine. Modafinil will make you able to endure longer and harder activity, just ask the athletes who’ve been banned for taking it to get an advantage. If you put your reduced appetite together with a more active lifestyle, you can guarantee real meaningful weight loss.
