Our bodies are machines; as such, we need to take care of every working part. Physical health improves our mental functioning, and vice versa. Studies of professional gamers showed that exercising and reading during breaks from play increased performance and decreased mistakes.

The quality and duration of sleep is key for high functioning athletes. Quality of sleep can be negatively affected by gaming just before bed, due to the impact of blue light exposure from screen time. Gamers who sleep adequately, and don’t game in their last 90 waking minutes, are more likely to perform well.

Up until recently, gaming hasn’t been widely considered as a sport, so our understanding of how to perform at a high level was under-researched. Our ground-breaking program approaches gaming with a similar mentality to other competitive sports.

Gaming as often as possible leads to a decline in performance. Our attention begins to diminish once we have been performing a task for a certain amount of time. Taking breaks and incorporating exercise and medication into your gaming routine will be more effective in improving your performance.

A healthy gamer is an effective gamer. A balanced diet helps to improve cardiovascular health and cognitive functioning, which are essential for the physically and mentally gruelling environment which professional gaming involves.
