Learning occurs, and fitness is built, through repetition and recovery. This principle applies to brain learning (it’s called spaced learning). It also applies to creating fitness, where most experts recommend taking 2-3 days each week to rest and recover from exercise. Living organisms are experts at adapting to things. By doing something intermittently, instead of every day, counters the tendency for adaptation, which is a useful way to approach things you plan on doing or taking for long periods of time. Our general preference is that, if something doesn’t need to be taken daily, it’s a good idea to build in breaks. We feel more strongly about building in weekly days off for dietary supplement products that contain caffeine and/or adaptogens, both of which are found in Qualia Focus.
