Forgetfulness, fogginess, and memory issues start to set in as we age, but we don’t have to give in to the cloudiness. With a few simple exercises, you can help to fight the fog, strengthen your cognition, and promote overall mental clarity!
CLEAR YOUR MIND, NATURALLY
When brain fog hits, it can be difficult to focus or get your bearing straight.
Here are five easy ways to help clear the fog without the need for harsh chemicals.
1. Pay attention to what you eat.
As we already know, what you consume affects your whole body – from your feet and your heart health to your brain. You really are what you eat!
Artificial sweeteners and MSG (monosodium glutamate) inhibit the brain’s neurotransmitters, leaving you feeling drained and tired after your body has had time to break down your meal or beverage.
Whole foods packed with B vitamins, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids are your best choices to boost brain function.
2. Get plenty of restful sleep.
You need eight to nine uninterrupted hours of sleep each night to allow your body a full REM cycle. As your body rests and enters REM, your brain has time to replenish and regenerate itself, leaving you ready for the following day.
Close your evening out with enough time to get eight hours of sleep in, put your phone on Do Not Disturb mode, and drift off to sleep!
Many of us feel peer pressure to sleep less and do more, but sleep really is the key to long life.
Supplements like Tart Cherry Extract are great for aiding in sleep and relieving any inflammation that you may have accumulated during the day. They are natural sources of melatonin and can help you sleep more soundly throughout the night!

3. Enjoy some fresh air and exercise.
They say fresh air and sunshine clears the mind – and this is true!
Spending time outside, whether you are going for a leisurely walk, sitting outside to read, or getting a run in can help to improve your memory and focus.
Also, sunlight helps you to produce the very necessary vitamin D3.
Pair this with physical activity to increase blood flow and endorphin levels in the brain for a lovely boost of energy.
4. Supplement with natural adaptogens.
Adaptogens are natural herbs like certain mushrooms, ginseng, Ashwagandha, and aloe vera that interact with the body’s natural stress responses.
Adaptogens block outside stressors, leaving the body’s physical and psychological processors free to function optimally. These plants allow us to adapt to environmental and internal stressors.
You can find these adaptogens in powder form to easily incorporate into a smoothie, coffee, or soup.
5. Work out your brain with puzzles or creative activities.
Tasks and activities that keep you mentally engaged are, quite literally, exercises for your brain.
Logic problems, sudoku, and putting a puzzle together, are all methods of keeping your brain active, functioning, and ready for any serious stressors that are thrown in your path.
Learning a new task is another way to stimulate and keep the brain healthy.
