Brain Fog During Period? Here’s How You Can Increase Focus & Concentration In Minutes

For some women, brain fog is constant distraction that never really goes away. And during menstruation, it's heightened. When you’re on your period, fighting off brain fog can feel like a Herculean task, making it virtually impossible to concentrate on that to do list that only keeps getting longer. In today’s blog, we’ll explain what brain fog is, why it's worse when you’re on your period, and most importantly, how you can reclaim your focus and concentration.

What is brain fog?

Brain fog feels like a dense mist has settled over your psyche. It obscures your thinking by paralyzing your mental agility. It might manifest as forgetfulness, concentration difficulties, feeling disoriented, or psychological lethargy.

Brain fog can be linked to various causes, but is typically associated with hormonal fluctuations, stress, inadequate sleep, poor diet, and is a common side effect of many prescription medications.

Why is brain fog worse during your period?

Millions of women experience pronounced brain fog during menstruation, which as mentioned above, can be attributed to the hormonal rollercoaster the female body encounters in the days leading up to and during her menstrual flow. Hormones such as estrogen and progesterone spike and deflate, giving the body little time to catch up. The result? Common PMS symptoms such as mood swings, irritability, brain fog, abdominal cramps, and impulsive appetite cravings.

What’s more, a woman’s menstrual cycle can also impact her sleep patterns and quality in the days preceding her period. Lack of sleep is also a major contributor to brain fog.

How to get rid of brain fog in minutes

If you’re in need of relief from brain fog’s cognitive paralysis, especially during your period, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some things you can try now:

  1. Move your body. By including frequent breaks for (any) physical activity, you’re helping your body improve circulation, improve your mood, and most of all enhance your cognitive performance.
  2. Take a nap. Although you should be aiming for 7-9 hours of sleep at night, learn to listen to your body. If your brain is foggy because it’s tired, give it the rest it is rightfully deserving of. If a place to rest is accessible to you, go there and set a timer on your phone (with a gentle-sounding alarm) to rest your eyes, even if just for ten minutes.
  3. Eat a fruit or vegetable. Look for nutrient-rich foods that contain large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins B and D. These are the core nutrients that are essential for brain function.
  4. Meditate. Giving yourself a few minutes to hit reset is never a bad idea. In fact, there’s no limit to how often you should work mindfulness into your day. Sitting in still silence for five minutes is sometimes all you need to arrive present in your body for whatever task is in front of you. If this feels too unnatural for you, consider downloading a meditation app that can help guide you.
  5. Drink a glass of water. Just like you can never have enough mindfulness, as long as you’re not exceeding 676 to 947 ounces of water per day, it’s pretty safe to assume drinking another glass of water can only be beneficial for your health. Dehydration is another contributing factor to brain fog, so why not try this simple solution to rule it out?
  6. Take a supplement. Ladykind’s Rise Up Daily Mind-Clearing Tincture is an award-winning herbal remedy that supports women’s cognitive function and hormonal balance. This all-natural product blends the powerful women’s wellness benefits of CBD and CBG with other star ingredients such as damiana, vitamin B5, maca root, and turmeric. Start by taking 1/4 dropper at a time, working your way up to one full dropper as necessary. You can administer this tincture sublingually (by holding it for 60 seconds under the tongue) or by incorporating it into your favorite food and beverages.

Your mental wellbeing is just as important as your physical health. By implementing a nutrient-rich diet, proper sleep and hydration, alternative health supplements, and movement and meditation, you can lift the veil of brain fog to give way to a sharper mind underneath.

These easy solutions produce maximum results in exchange for minimal effort. So if you believe brain fog is just an inevitable side effect of PMS, think again.
