8 Ways to Boost Your Mental Clarity


Brain fog is something that those of us who have anxiety can experience. This can happen when our attention becomes so focused on our anxious thoughts that it becomes challenging to concentrate on other things. Those who experience brain fog may have trouble collecting their thoughts, difficulty concentrating or remembering things, mental exhaustion, lack of motivation, and have hazy thoughts. Even if your anxious thoughts aren't at the front of your mind, they can still make noise in the background. If you ever experience brain fog, here are 8 tips that you can utilize to boost your mental clarity:


Spend time outside for some fresh air


Move your body

Hydrate


De-clutter your space


Remove distractions from your environment

Practice a mindfulness technique

Meditate to improve your focus


Do things in alignment with your values




While all of these tips can be helpful in boosting your mental clarity, it is especially important that you are exploring with a therapist the root causes of your anxiety and consulting with a physician in case of any underlying issues that may be causing brain fog.
