CORRECT SUGAR INTAKE
Cutting back on packaged and processed foods that are loaded with sugar, in addition to many other artificial and harmful ingredients — like artificial sweeteners — is the first step to fixing brain fog. Sugar might make you feel energetic and happier at first, but ultimately your sugar addiction robs you of steady energy and focus.
While refined sugar raises inflammation, quality carbs from things like fruits and veggies do the opposite. ●
These days, it’s tough to go more than a few hours without an influx of “stressors” like emails, texts and cell phone calls.
High amounts of stress increase the production of cortisol, which has side effects including feeling “wired but tired,” weight gain, suffering hormonal imbalances, sexual dysfunction, insomnia, depression, and further anxiety. ●
STAY ON A SLEEP SCHEDULE
One of the fastest and more reliable ways to improve brain function is to get better sleep. The hormones in your brain stay in balance when your body gets adequate rest every night, at least seven hours for most adults. ●
For most people, moderate and regular exercise can help balance hormones, improve insulin resistance and help you to get better sleep, all of which are important for fighting fatigue. Exercise releases natural endorphins, boosting your stamina and lifting your mood.
CHECK FOR HORMONE IMBALANCES
Low thyroid function, adrenal insufficiency and chronic fatigue syndrome can all increase symptoms of brain fog. These hormonal imbalances are mostly caused by the same factors as inflammation: a poor diet, possible sensitivities and allergies, stress, and not enough rest.
Adaptogens like holy basil, maca and ashwagandha can help to clear brain fog− Adaptogen herbs help lower cortisol and give your body support against dealing with fatigue and stress.
