Brain Fog

Bear with me here, if you will. Today’s post is just an honest, raw account of how I’m feeling. Thanks for reading!

For whatever reason my brain has been sluggish that last few days. Close to a week. That is, except for those moments when I cannot physically jot down my thoughts like when brushing my teeth or in the shower. Mostly though, I’ve been mellow this week. Almost down even.

There is no particular reason why. Nothing awful has plagued my days, no impending doom shadows my future, and overall it’s been a very low-key week. It just feels like a veil has been gently wafted over my existence making everything hazy and dull.

My usual fixer upper solutions haven’t been cutting it in this round of emotional turbulence. I feel fatigued deep into the marrow of my bones. I’m pretty sure each of my legs weighs 60 lbs now and that gravity has been centered on my existence this week.

Even writing feels difficult. My mind feels all stretched and tangled so my ideas are getting stuck in limbo. It literally feels like someone has a lasso on my very thoughts and I can physically feel them pulling them all to the back of my head. I don’t like this feeling.

Maybe I’m getting ill or my hormones are out of whack still. Who knows?

What are your best pepper up methods when you start to feel just down and out? How do you boost yourself through your worst days?

I’d love to hear your thoughts and thank you for reading!

  1. It is hard to come out of that funk and I go through the seasonal blues too. What helps me is to take vitamin D on a daily basis and work out (I do hot yoga) even when I don’t want to. I can totally relate with the brain fog and that is exactly how I describe it too! Hope you feel better soon! ❤

    1. Thank you for the encouragement! I definitely need to prioritize yoga to be a daily thing regardless of if I want to or not. I’ve never tried taking vitamins but I will have to look into it for sure! I’ve heard of the benefits of Vitamin D but never tried giving it a shot. Thank you again! ❤️

      1. You are so welcome! 🙂 Yes, vitamin D definitely helps, look into it. I do 2000 IU daily all winter.
        A fellow Yogi, that’s so great! Starting is the hard part, so once you start, you get used to it!:)

      2. Consistency has been really challenging for me as I’ve started practicing Yoga. It’s easy to put off to do other “more important” things but I am exploring some new ways to set my priorities and make self-care a much higher bullet point! I love it so far, just need to keep at it! 🙂 How long have you been doing yoga?

      3. I have been practicing yoga for 6 years now. I feel yoga is about taking care of yourself so you can take care of “more important” things 🙂 I am pretty religious about it as it helps me get through brain fog. I encourage you to make yourself go 3 times for 1 week and see how you feel. Maybe after that you will want to go 😉

  2. Good morning! I’m sorry your feeling off! When I’m feeling a little low I usually put on some music and dance a little or sing at the top of my lungs lol. That’s what usually helps me. Try it! I hope your day gets better! 🙂

  3. It’s been such a long dreary winter – I think we’re all in a bit of a funk. Vitamin D can only help, we really need to supplement on that one.
    I’m a big fan of changing things up when I’m in a fog. Loud music, a can of paint or planning a dinner to cook for friends, weekend dvd session etc help. Plan something fun the poxy weather can’t spoil!

  4. I will exercise. A good hard sweat getting my adrenaline pumping. I know not for everyone but it works for me. Walking in the sun always works wonders too, I take in my surroundings. Perhaps sit and have a coffee and people watch. I love watching the world go by. As mentioned above vitamin D. All of the above in the sun. The sunshine on your face is just wonderful. Too long though, don’t want to get wrinkles or some cancer 😊🤣
