So I am super predictable. Every day, I hit the wall at the exact same times. It is pretty annoying. Especially when I have a lot of work to do and just need to crank it out.
I deal with THE GREAT FOG…Every. Single. Day. I find it hard to focus, I feel disorganized, overwhelmed, and can’t think. It is like a FOG has flooded in my brain and has taken over. A cloud that I can’t see through. I have memory problems, I get into a bad mood, and I just can’t get anything done.
My brain and my body are TI-RED. It usually happens right when I need to be WI-RED! THE GREAT FOG IS THE WORST.
What to do about it? I talked to some doctors to learn more information about what this is and how I can deal.
To break out of THE FOG slump, there were common themes:
Since THE FOG is because we are fatigued, one of the best things we can do is get a good night’s rest. They say 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night should be our target. No screens allowed in that bedroom though!
2) GETTING A MOVE ON
Moving our bodies is sometimes the easiest way to clear THE FOG on out of here. When our brains aren’t getting enough H2O, we get THE FOG. So exercise can improve circulation. Even a walk or light stretching can help us.
3) TAKE A BREAK
It’s good for us to take breaks sometimes! Positive coping skills that relax or turn off our brains may clear up THE FOG. Meditation, taking a hot bath, reading, or doing whatever gives us joy will help improve our mental health, and THE FOG will disappear.
When we are going through THE GREAT FOG, it is often hard to get ourselves to do any of these things, but the results are totally worth it. We can give ourselves a big boost and shake off THE GREAT FOG by just changing how we do a few things.
So tell me, in the comments below, have you ever encountered THE GREAT FOG and what helped you get through it?
