The brain is a wondrous entity, capable of complex problem solving, planning, adaptability, memory recall, and self-regulation. It accounts for 2 percent of our body weight but it uses 20 percent of our available energy. When the brain is low on energy, it doesn’t operate optimally. Likewise, think of each brain activity as a window on a computer. The more windows you have open, the more the system’s bandwidth is taxed and the more it’s functioning is potentially compromised. The Brain Energy/Bandwidth Inventory, based on neuroscience research, is designed to assist people in appraising their own brain energy and bandwidth demands. Take the brain energy/bandwidth quiz and learn some tips on how you can be less distracted, more efficient, and more engaged in your work and personal life.
