Are you forgetting things? Do you struggle to remember what you were going to say or recall information? Do you get lost in thought or have squirrel syndrome?
These are all symptoms of brain fog!
I have had some temporary brain fog for years due to raising high needs kiddos but this new season of life has taken my brain fog to a whole other level😱If you are in perimenopause or menopause, brain fog is a very real part of of your daily life because your estrogen levels drop during menopause and can cause forgetfulness, poor concentration, and cloudy thinking. Raising high needs children is like a double whammy…
Dr Axe has a great BLOG on brain fog and it really does identify this new season I am in.
He lists 7 natural ways to help reduce brain fog:
1. Watch Sugar Intake
2. Eat Protein and Healthy Fats
3. Manage Stress
4. Get Good Sleep
6. Consider you may have a hormonal imbalance (why, yes I do…🤔)
7. Address any known food allergies or sensitivities
These are SEVEN area’s that you (I) can control where brain fog is concerned. However in looking at these 7, if I am being totally honest, I don’t always hit all 7 every day.
What about you? How many of the 7 are you reaching each day?
