I don’t think there is an adult alive today that hasn’t, at some point, suffered from brain fog. Suffering from brain fog can be super frustrating, but it can also effect your personal and professional life in a big way.
Brain fog can also be described as mental fatigue. Brain fog is not a medical condition, but rather the result of a “bad” life style, stress or something more severe like Alzheimer’s disease. It is important to narrow down what the cause of your brain fog is before looking into a treatment.
The causes of brain fog includes, but are not limited to:
- Stress, anxiety & depression wears out the brain by occupying it with unnecessary information or replaying the same thoughts over and over again. Your brain doesn’t get enough time to shut down and reboot, it just keeps on running. The longer the stress episode the worse the brain fog will get.
- Hormonal changes during pregnancy or menopause can cause of brain fog. Usually both of these women will suffer short-term memory issues or will find it difficult to recall long term memory. Once the estrogen levels in your body balances out again your brain should go back to its normal, sharp self.
- Lack of sleep is a major cause of brain fog. Usually the main cause of insomnia is stress & anxiety, but other people believe they only have to sleep when they’re tired. This is very far from the truth. Adults should get 7-8 hours of sleep per night, and that is every single night. It is impossible to catch up on sleep, if you’ve lost sleep, it’s gone forever.
- Diet is always a factor when it comes to a healthier lifestyle. Fruits and veg is your go to foods for a healthier you. Drinking a B12 supplement can also help boost your brain functions. Something to look out for is feeling tired after a meal. If you have food allergies or a food sensitivity, you will feel tired or sleepy after consumption. These foods can include, peanuts, dairy and MSG to name a few. If you think you might be suffering from a food allergy consult with your GP or Allergist as soon as possible.
- Medication can cause brain fog or drowsiness. Always read the label before using new medication. I have found that it’s best to consume medication at night to reduce your chances of an unproductive work day. But ALWAYS consult with your GP first.
- More Serious Illnesses like Alzheimer’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) or Lupus can cause brain fog.
