Brain Fog Is Much More Common Than You Might Think
Hearing the term "brain fog", one would probably assume that it stems from one's forgetfulness or playful explanation of why you can't remember things or serve as the reason why many of us have stood in a room, having a blank stare, not remembering why we came into the room in the first place.
If you have ever had those bouts of feeling like you lacked mental clarity, couldn't focus your attention on a task at hand, lacking concentration, or simply a general sense of just feeling not completely dialed into your own life, you could probably be classified as having a case of “Brain fog”.
Now with brain fog, most symptoms are "normal" when done with medical tests per se, but it is one of those conditions where people have many of the uncomfortable symptoms mentioned earlier yet the medical field can't label it. Just imagine if you are having trouble thinking of words on the tip of your tongue, feeling as if you're performing tasks in a haze, or even taking longer to do certain tasks are not, and then hearing the doctor tell you that nothing is wrong with you. What's up with that?
We should note that using the term brain fog doesn't mean the same thing as brain impairment or dementia, and there are no studies that says feeling of brain fog lead to cognitive diseases. But there are other reasons you may be feeling that way, and it has to do more with foods than it does aging.
I recently read an article entitled "The 5 pillars of High Performance" by Brendon Burchard. It was a great read in that one of his "pillars" was Energy. In the article, he was referring to the energy and power of the brain when he said that high performers have a lot of energy. He said, "The power plant doesn't have energy, it creates energy. Energy isn't something you have. It's something you are creating in the moment based on how you think." He's saying we have the ability to create usable energy simply by our will to think.
When I read his article, I was in the mind set of trying to be more energized about my business. It was 5:30 am on a Sunday morning. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized it actually is also (if not more) appropriate to use this analogy as it relates to our physical energy or lack thereof throughout the day. Could that same principle be applied to our physical energy?
