Brain fog is probably something we can all relate to at one time or another. Whether it’s that Monday afternoon energy lag, or the inability to focus when we really need to, I’m sure we can all benefit from brain fog cures. Let’s talk about brain fog causes as well as how to cure them the natural way.

What causes brain fog?

While we’re all different, there are a few brain fog causes that I think are fairly common: Stress, not enough sleep, diet, and changes in hormones.

If you’re anything like me, these common causes are usually linked to each other: When I’m not sleeping well, I don’t eat well. When my hormones are in flux, I often don’t eat well or sleep. Stress can cause me to not sleep as well as rely on processed foods… the list goes on. How can I easily cure brain fog? Grab your blender, then keep on reading!


What is causing my brain fog?

The biggest brain fog causes are stress, lack of sleep, hormone changes, and diet.

What does brain fog feel like?

You might forget what you’re doing mid task, take longer than normal to complete normal tasks, feel tired while trying to get something done, get distracted often.

How do you get rid of brain fog fast?

Regular exercise, get consistent sleep, eat well and find activities that bring you joy.

Simple brain fog cures

Now that you know where that brain fog started, how can you fix it?

Get outside– vitamin D is no joke; getting outside doesn’t just boost your mood, it can also clear that fog.

Exercise regularly– Whether it’s a walk on your lunch break, a bike ride to your next activity instead of driving, starting a small garden… whatever it takes to get you moving. I may work from home, but I still need to schedule time to be outside every day.

Diet– By now you should know I’m a firm advocate of a plant based diet. This isn’t vegan or restrictive… I eat meat! Yet I do believe in the power of plants, and I know that Americans don’t get enough plants in their diet. Try a meatless Monday, take your kids grocery shopping then let them pick a new fruit or veggie to try, grow herbs to spice up that dinner plate.

Brain fog cures don’t need to be hard, complicated, or confusing. Instead, keep it simple and something you can easily do every day, like drinking a green smoothie or walking for 20 minutes.
