There are simply days when everything feels a little off. When the sun feels a little hotter and your eyes feel a little heavier. Days like this come as normally as they go. And while we strongly wish that we could stay home during days like this, life has other plans.
It plans to keep moving – on and on, and on. Leaving you behind if it has to; making you fall behind the times. Life remains ever constant and time flows irreversibly. This means that no matter what or how you feel today, the world is not going to stop turning. It will not pause and wait for you to get a move on. It will continue its cycle regardless of your circumstances. School will keep having classes; work will keep rotating shifts. There is literally no end to the Earth’s revolution. You are the one to adjust – not the other way around.
But how do you cope with this? How do you go about your day and act as if everything is normal when in fact, it is not. You feel out of tune. Your body feels like it could collapse any moment now. Your mind feels like it’s lost in a deep forest and it’s not going to see light anytime soon. Here’s an interesting article that shows you’re not the only one feeling like this: https://www.inc.com/nicolas-cole/feeling-off-here-are-7-key-indicators-your-life-is-out-of-balance.html.
You know what you need? A little pick-me-up.
You need something that can effectively and instantly change your mood for the better. You need a miracle pill that can lift your spirits up and urge you to go out and face the world with confidence again. What you need is the Nootropic Modafinil.
What Is Modafinil?
Modafinil is a type of nootropic that is specifically designed to influence the sleep-wake cycle (read more). In case this is the first time you’ve ever heard the term “nootropic,” it is typically what you’d call a cognitive enhancer.” These mostly legal drugs are used to limit, encourage, or restrict production of certain hormones in the brain – usually those that have something to do with wakefulness and alertness. Modafinil is one such drug. If anything, it is one of the best. It is so effective at promoting wakefulness that it is even dubbed as the “King of Nootropics.”
Now, Modafinil is a prescription drug and your general understanding of prescription drugs would tell you that you cannot purchase them albeit a doctor’s recommendation. This cognitive enhancement pill is often prescribed to patients who are suffering or experiencing sleep-wake disorders such as narcolepsy or hypersomnia. When taken, Modafinil grants its user an increase in motivation and alertness levels. The taker then feels much confidence in his ability to think, focus, and remember. This is why a lot of hardworking employees and students prefer Modafinil over other nootropic drugs. It’s basically the closest you get to what some people call “the limitless pill.” It makes you feel like you have the power and the energy to do anything.
Is Modafinil Safe?
To cut the long answer short, I say yes. Modafinil is indeed safe to use compared to illegal psychoactive drugs. Also, the pill we have sold online or in drug stores as prescription medicine has a very low dosage. You don’t need much of the substance to feel the effects kick in. Of course, it is still advised that you stick to the recommended dosage. Taking too much of anything never leads to something good. At your age, you should already be aware of that.
So now that we have that cleared up, we are down for the main event: Introducing “stacks.”
What Is Stacking?
Literally-speaking, “to stack” or “stacking” means that you’re placing something on top of the other – like stacking books or stacking cards. It means that you’re piling two or more things together so that they create something like a tower. In the nootropic world, this term is used in a similar sense. There is what we call nootropic stacking and we’ll show you how it works:
Some people feel that some cognitive enhancers work best when taken with other cognitive enhancers – not exactly at the same time but often on the same day. When a person takes a combination of nootropics, we refer to it as a “stack.” This can range from two or three nootropics (four with some people) and is usually comprised of substances with mild to moderate cognitive effects. Modafinil is a popular choice for stacks. Many people use it as the main nootropic and boost it with other substances.
Like caffeine, for example.
You may not know this but caffeine, for a fact, passes as a nootropic. It has all the properties characteristic of every nootropic drug and that is its influence over the sleep-wake cycle. Like Modafinil, caffeine promotes wakefulness. To be accurate, it stimulates it. But unlike our nootropic of interest today, caffeine is tasty. And that’s what makes it so addicting.
Thankfully, you will need to have drunk gallons and gallons of caffeine before you can ever come close to an overdose. This is why, although an addictive drug, drinking coffee and using Modafinil is legal in almost all parts of the world. Let’s just say that the authorities let this one slide and allowed people the pleasures of drinking aromatic brews. I’m sure most of our authorities are fond of drinking the beverage too.
Coffee being a wakefulness stimulant makes it a wonderful combination to Modafinil which is a wakefulness promoter. Since caffeine is much milder than Modafinil, people often use it as a booster. After popping the pill, you can boost its effects by drinking a cup of coffee after an hour or two. It is best that when you use coffee as a booster, don’t chug it down in a single gulp. I know it’s delish but please restrain yourself. Instead, take little sips every few minutes. This will make the boost last much longer.
Now, caffeine is just a suggestion but know that you can use other nootropic substances in your stack too! Just remember our simple rule: Do everything in moderation. Even when something isn’t dangerous, a little too much of anything will always have consequences.
