What do you take for energy / focus?

Hi Guys - I'm wondering what, if anything, you take when you need a boost of energy / focus? I recently tried modafinil and it was damn pathetic. I honestly have no idea how so many people like it. Have any of you found anything that truly works?

Black coffee cures all ills

No sugar or milk.

600 - 800 MG of caffeine a day right now. Sometimes stack with L-theanine which is just a green tea extract. Pills are much more efficient.

+1. Water, eat clean, not too many processed carbs. Sleep. Get off Netflix at night, you'll value that extra hour over that episode of The Office the following morning.

Cold showers every morning.
About sleeping as much as possible for me it's just making it worse, if I sleep more than 4-6 hours a night I'll wake up with no energy.

Try to sleep 6 hours a night for 1 week and see if it's working for you. You will feel tired in the first 2 days of doing this but after you'll be more "awake"
