So many of us have experienced a hazy state of mind from time to time.
👉🏼Brain fog can be common, especially for people who struggle with anxiety. Individuals who experience generalized anxiety often report symptoms of brain fog.
👉🏼However, the relationship between anxiety and brain fog is complicated. A 2019 study, suggests that anxiety can disrupt cognitive processes such as thinking, problem solving, and decision making, which can lead to foggy thinking.
👉🏼Essentially, the brain is so busy processing anxious thoughts it has a little room left for these other functions.
Scientists also say that the relationship between brain fog and anxiety can go both ways as brain fog increases so can anxiety.
Brian fog can be linked to other physical health struggles as well (gut issues, diet, lack of sleep, dehydration, medications, hormone changes, etc).
Tell me, do you experience brain fog?
