Tips for Managing Brain Fog continued...
Go step by step. Do you get muddled doing tasks -- like cleaning, or a project at work -- and lose track of what you need to do next? Break down each task into steps, and check them off. "You'll give yourself a road map to help you as you go," Kalb says.
Timing is everything. What time of day do you feel best? Morning? After lunch? Tackle your more demanding tasks then. Save the less important stuff for other times.
Get help. If you can’t seem to clear the fog, work with an expert -- like a neuropsychologist, occupational therapist, or speech pathologist. Special computer programs can help you work on your attention and memory. "It's like physical therapy, but for your brain," Kalb says.
