We often talk and use the phrase “brain fog”, but we rarely pause to think whether something like that is real. It turns out that it is, and it comes as a consequence of certain circumstances or behaviors. Most of these circumstances are out of normal daily functioning, such as poor sleep pattern, stress or inadequate nutrition. It is in these behaviors where we find the key to fighting brain fog. Better diet and good sleep quality make the occurrence less likely.
- One of the major causes of brain fog is low quality of sleep. This could be less hours or troubles with breathing at night.
- A lack of exercise can mean less oxygen in the brain as well as hormones that can help spawning brain cells.
- Exercising and sleeping better can improve brain fog while taking medication for anxiety can help keep you in a flow state.
