Having more flexibility in your schedule will allow you to reduce brain fog since you won’t have to think about work as much. Work can quickly drain mental energy, and meditation, in combination with setting boundaries, can help tremendously with stress.
3. EXERCISE MORE
Exercise offers so many benefits to our mind and body, especially when combined with healthy eating practices. For one, it increases endorphins, which are feel-good hormones released when the body needs a quick burst of energy to perform a task. Endorphins provide the body with a natural high.
Furthermore, exercise helps you sleep better, which will reduce your brain fog and increase energy. A study published in April 2015 in the Journal of Sleep Research studied people with insomnia who did moderate-intensity workouts for at least 150 minutes each week. Researchers discovered that participants had less severe insomnia symptoms as well as better moods when they exercised.
Exercise can also increase focus and eliminate “brain fog.” According to a study of older adults published in April 2016 in Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity, a 24 workout program containing moderate-intensity aerobic exercise improved concentration and focus.
Exercise can also eliminate depression and anxiety symptoms, which will improve your energy since your mind won’t be running on overdrive.
4. GET BLOOD SUGAR UNDER CONTROL
Diabetes and high blood sugar can later lead to neurodegenerative disorders such as dementia. By eating healthy, abstaining from added sugars, exercising, and maintaining a healthy weight, you can get your blood sugar under control, which will improve energy levels.
