“The beauty of nature will give your prefrontal cortex – the area of your brain that helps you focus – an opportunity to recharge,” Dr. Pasinski says.
Relaxing activities such as yoga, tai chi, qigong and meditation can improve problems with sleep, fatigue, poor memory and anxiety – all of which are linked to brain fog, according to many studies.
For example, 20 volunteers with fibromyalgia saw improvements in sleep, pain, and physical and mental functioning after practicing qigong for eight weeks, according to a 2013 Canadian study published in the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
And those who practiced the most had the best outcomes, the researchers said.
Try it: Sign up for classes at your local gym or YWCA or rent instructional DVDs from the library.
If possible, practice outside, advises Dr. Teitelbaum. “The combination of exercise with sunshine and fresh air can help reduce brain fog.”
These 5-minute meditations may help too.
