Brain fog can be caused by a few different things. Use these suggestions to combat it:
Balanced Clean Nutrition:
To start with the easiest possible answer, make sure you are getting the proper nutrition throughout your day. This includes avoiding too much sugar in any meal. Increased sugars (which includes grains) will cause your body to increase its insulin levels. This can in turn cause a drop in energy and contribute to foggy brain. So, make sure each of your meals contains several servings of non-starchy vegetables, protein and a small amount of healthy fats.
Go for your next physical:
Keeping up with your annual physical can help identify metabolic problems that contribute to brain fog. For women, in particular, ruling out a thyroid problem is very important. Your thyroid is responsible for your energy levels. If your thyroid is under active you may find yourself dealing with foggy brain. Having your annual physical can keep you abreast of how well you metabolism is functioning.
A body in motion attempts to stay in motion. Motion to the metabolism means good blood flow, oxygen to the brain, and minimized potential for foggy brain episodes. So set an alarm and at least once an hour get up and move around. A simple walk for 5 minutes can be very refreshing to a body that has been at rest. This will improve your brain function and keep your metabolism more productive.
These are just a few suggestions to get you started. Begin your change today and watch the fog dissipate.
