What is brain fog?
Brain fog is an all-encompassing term for symptoms of cognitive dysfunction. Common symptoms experienced are trouble with focusing, learning, and memory, all of which can lead to confusion, disorientation and frustration. Brain fog is becoming increasingly prevalent in our society, larger in part to fixable lifestyle behaviors.
Ways to improve brain fog:
Diet: unknown food allergies or sensitivities can lead to brain fog. A diet high in omega-rich foods (ex. salmon, chia and flax seeds, walnuts avocados, and leafy green vegetables) has been shown to boost brain health.
Supplements: Studies show that good quality D3, fish oil and B-12 supplements can work together to improve cognitive function and reduce brain fatigue.

Sleep more: optimal brain function occurs when you sleep 8-9 hours per night, so no skimping on the sleep! See below to learn more about the importance of sleep.
Exercise: Working out increase your oxygen levels, which helps your body perform both physically and mentally.
Manage stress: Because stress can lead to brain fog, finding ways to de-stress is imperative to combatting it. By engaging in acts of self care, like meditation, you allow your brain to de-stress and instead increase mental awareness and clarity.
