Experiencing Brain Fog?

Here are our tips to Help you Clear Your Mind.

Brain Fog

Are you a victim of brain fog? Experiencing confusion, forgetfulness, or a lack of focus and mental clarity in your day? You’re not alone. Brain fog is common, and the term can be used to describe a range of symptoms and feelings, including a general ‘fogginess’ and ‘haziness.’ This fogginess can slow down your thinking and make it hard for you to concentrate and effectively manage tasks. Unfortunately, cognitive dysfunction affects many of us daily, and numbers continue to skyrocket in 2022, with it being a common post covid side effect.  (Edwards & Sullivan, 2022). In fact, in a recent study, 69% reported brain fog following their covid infection; (Sissons, 2019), which shows that many of us have been feeling it recently. Although it is debilitating, there are ways to manage your condition and things you can do to prevent it. 

What causes brain fog?

Various lifestyle factors have been said to lead to brain fog, like inadequate nutrition, high-stress levels, anxiety and general fatigue. Additionally, evidence suggests that females are likely to experience these symptoms through hormonal changes due to their menstrual cycle, menopause or hormonal imbalances.

Other common Causes:

  • Stress and mild anxiety
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Too much caffeine 
  • Too much sugar
  • Too little water 
  • Not enough exercise

 

You can make many lifestyle changes that will help you kick brain fog to the curb. Here are our main tips:

  • Get Moving! Physical activity will help you release stress and create feel-good endorphins to help you feel your best!
  • Limit your screen time – remind yourself to take a break from the screens.
  • Change your diet – reduce fatty and sugary foods.
  • Drink more water – aim for 2 litres a day or 8 glasses.
  • Get enough sleep – aim for 7-8 hours of sleep every night.
  • Avoid alcohol, smoking, and drinking coffee in the afternoon.
