How to stay energised while gaming

Trouble keeping your energy levels up when gaming? Here’s how to support your health and stay engaged so you can game on.

To game successfully, you need a serious amount of energy, focus and concentration. But if you’re not feeling motivated, you may be tempted to reach for a helping hand. You’re probably aware that options like sugar-sweetened soft drinks and energy drinks aren’t necessarily great for your health, but you drink them anyway because they give you the energy you need to stay focused on your game. Or so you think. While it’s true that reaching for those sugary, caffeinated drinks may give you a quick high, you’ll also get an almighty crash not long after that high - making you feel less energised. As a result, you’ll drink more of these drinks and experience the same effects, over and over. And that’s no good for your gaming.

What you may not know, is that there are other ways to stay energised while gaming.

Berocca: vitamins to help you game with energy

Berocca, the alternative effervescent vitamin and mineral supplement, is packed full of essential vitamins and minerals that support your mental alertness and physical energy, without relying on that sugary or caffeinated drink hit.

The vitamins in Berocca, including B vitamins and vitamin C, are linked with a range of benefits that may help to improve your focus and concentration when you’re gaming, including:

  •  Supporting a healthy mood balance
  •  Enhanced mental performance and stamina
  •  Concentration
  •  Memory
  •  Stress and mild anxiety
  •  Enhanced physical stamina when taken daily for 28 days

Some energy drinks contain excessive amounts of sugar and caffeine. The sugar does you no favours while drinking too much caffeine can interfere with your sleep and may have negative health associations. Berocca, on the other hand, is formulated without caffeine, does not rely on sugar for its delicious flavours, and only contains approximately 6-8 calories per serve. The B vitamins help to release energy from your food throughout the day, so you can game on without that crash.

Other tips to keep you energised while gaming

If you want to improve your focus and concentration, and be at the top of your game (pun intended), then it’s important you support your health and energy levels by:

  • Eating a healthy diet - one of the best things you can do for your mental performance and physical energy levels is to fuel your body and mind with fresh, healthy foods (and stay away from processed snacks).
  •  Exercising regularly - believe it or not, time away from the screen can actually help your gaming as regular exercise keeps you healthy, focused and strong.
  • Drinking plenty of water - aim to drink around two litres of water a day, as hydration is essential for good health.
  • Getting enough sleep - as much as you love gaming, you need to switch off at night; get your eight hours of sleep and your performance will be better tomorrow.


Remember: Gaming is a skill that requires mental energy, focus and concentration.
The best way to stay focused is to look after your health and wellbeing.
