    The issue is that in video game logic stamina isn't just energy, it's how much physical energy you have, if you wanted to really test the logic you should've done physical tasks or for a more accurate subject to test, mana regeneration tactics since you were doing mental tasks

    Funnily enough, watching Unravelled videos is how I get my boost of stamina. The upbeat music, vibrant visuals and Brian's chaos makes for a very good energy booster. 😁

    For BDG, gone are the concerns of good science. Instead, we have the workings of brilliant Briance.

    Something physically detrimental that would increase stamina... How about cutting off an arm? You would weigh less and therefore have increased stamina

    Brian forgot the elderscrolls stamina recovery system. Stay still for 1 hour. Do the science on restorative meditation.

      Also mgs teaches us that eating the same thing over again reduces effectiveness. Try variety of stamina increasing foods next time. People also often talk about the magic of creativity and imagination. Brian's problem is that his work was draining mana as well stamina but he wasn't distinguishing between the two. If you check the science on how energy drinks work you'll find that they restore stamina at the cost of mana. Finally dont forget that stamina fully recovers after levelling up. Start the day with a list of quests to complete and assign exp rewards to them. You can also get exp rewards using skills throughout the day. Just make sure your tracking your exp as you go. If you check the graphs a lot of stamina boosts did coincide with completeing quests.

    Thanks BDG for this video, this served as a reminder to me that in the real world the best way to gain stamina is to listen to your body. I struggle to find focus when I’m awake because I’m always so anxiety ridden, but after I take a nap mid-day I feel at peace and reset.

    You should have spec’d into Controlled Metabolism and Increased Tolerance before taking the steak and monster at the same time. Since one decoction fills 75% of your toxicity, taking more than one without perks will max it out and cause you to take health damage over time.

    Hello, fellow nerd here who also happens to study sleep and circadian rhythms. Just wanted to point out the lull of energy that happens in the afternoon of our Bureaucratic Wunderkid is a common drop in energy that happens in all humans. There isn't an ideal way to prevent this drop in stamina from happening, but the best way to accommodate this drop it is to chug your stamina booster before taking a 20 minute nap during that lull (no longer than that). By the time you wake up, your stamina boost will have fully taken effect (the caffeine fully kicks in) and you can continue hunting monsters. Maybe eating a steak also helps. I have yet to try it.

    In this video, Brian drinks the amount of caffeine that I drank during finals week that almost sent me to the hospital. Not from caffeine overdose, but from the eventual crash that came later, which led to me nearly breaking my neck while attempting to, essentially, skateboard while half-comatose.
