4 Ways to Improve Focus and Brain Fog

  • Work In Cycles 

  • One quick and easy way to increase your focus and concentration is to take breaks. Take a moment and time how long you can maintain focus and concentration on a few different projects. Use the average time before you start losing focus as a guide for when you take breaks. 

    If you find you can only concentrate for 20-30 minutes at time, take a short break for 5 minutes every half hour. This could be as simple as getting up and going outside or just taking a few minutes to recharge. 

    By working in cycles you will find yourself much more efficient and productive in the time that you are working instead of dragging and trying to finish a project. 

    It also helps to use your most productive hours to complete your most difficult projects or tasks.

  • Use Adaptogens to Kill Brain Fog 

    Adaptogens are a class of herbs that help your body run better in whatever state you are in. If you are in a stimulated state or a state of rest these herbs help your body normalize and adapt. Rhodiola is an example that is commonly found in a variety of herbal supplements such as nootropics or stress formulas. 

    Long term and acute levels of stress can wreak havoc on memory. Bacopa is an adaptogenic herb that is used to guard stress from having an impact on the brain's ability to perform. 

    Bacopa plays a key role in boosting serotonin and GABA, two very important neurotransmitters in the hippocampus known as the center for memory and emotions.

  • Check in With Your Hormone Balance

    In both men and women hormones out of balance have major cognitive impairments including lack of mental energy.  

    Most people who are impacted by this are in their mid to late 30’s and should be diagnosed by a physician familiar in treating hormone deficient patients. This is done with a blood test and corresponding symptoms. 

  • Add Some Cardio Into Your Day  
  • Have you ever wondered why CEO’s and high performers all seem to be into cardio? 

    Cardio increases blood to your brain. That is why you will find these successful individuals using cardio to think through difficult problems, navigate obstacles, and overcome issues that had you stumped before. 

    You might have noticed a similar feeling when you’ve been on a walk or run and finally the answer you had been searching for pops into your mind.This is explained in part to the perfusion of oxygenated blood to your body and brain. 

    A great herb that has this same effect is Ginkgo. An herb that is touted for its memory improvement as its key function is to increase blood supply to the brain.
