Brain Fog – Overcome It

Uncertainty is a part of life. Agreed. But while I struggle everyday to make peace with it, I fail most times. Lack of mental clarity aka Brain Fog, cripples you and sometimes makes you dysfunctional. You are not mindful of what you are doing anymore.

Brain fog can be defined as “a state of mental confusion, detachment, and forgetfulness,” according to Dictionary.com. While not a technical term, “brain fog” is a term with which many people with depression identify. Now depression has many phases, it does not mean that you have given up all hope in life and want to end it. It is your body telling you to take care, delve into the sea of self care and be yourself because that is all that you can do.

In this article, I have shared some simply economical habits that we can practice everyday to reduce or prevent brain fog :

  • Eat foods that are right for your needs – If you aren’t giving your body the vitamins and minerals that it needs, your ability to think clearly and focus will diminish.
  • Learn to Control your stress and get the most out of it – Think about some of the things that you enjoy doing, and try to do them more often.
  • Use memory-strengthening exercises – Play “brain games”, which can help you sharpen a range of cognitive skills, from reading and comprehension to memory.
  • Learning to Cope – Maintaining healthy habits and journalling can both help you cope with the brain fog that accompanies certain medical conditions.
  • Medicines & Treatments – It might be very helpful to change the dose of your medication (if possible), or start doing memory – strengthening exercises while in chemotherapy.
  • Get Quality Sleep – Oversleeping or getting too little sleep could possibly be symptoms of a larger issue, but many people choose to avoid addressing their sleep problems, or simply neglect sleep altogether.

Take Care. Seek help if you are unable to do it alone.

  1. Your mindset is the key to life, take the will of wants for things! of irrelevancy, then the stress we bestow on ourselves with opinions of others adding irrationality.

    If today was your last day would any of it lead you to say it was worth what you paid, if not then why would you engage.

    • I agree. Everyday you are given many choices… Take the easy road, or the road uphill that leads to success. The uphill track is challenging yes, it is tough, it will push you to your limits, but in pushing you to your limits you will also find – if you only show your courage – it will push you to past perceived limitations to growth and success. You see nothing WORTHWHILE in this life comes easy. If it did, as the saying goes “everybody would do it… EVERYONE doesn’t do it. They don’t do it because it’s hard, because their standards are set by their peers because they lack the courage, because their mindset is stuck in the EASY ROAD.
