Brain Fog

brain fog

Hey, studies are substantiating that there’s a strong connection between the food we eat and the way we feel mentally—our mood!

Psychologist Dr. Lynn Johnson, author of Enjoy Life! Healing with Happiness, wrote an excellent piece about this on his blog here.

I couldn’t agree more. Personally, I know how I feel just minutes after eating a donut for breakfast. It’s not good. Ask anyone around me. (No. Don’t!) On the frank side, I get edgy, unfocused, dumber and drained of energy. Mark Hyman, M.D., in The UltraMind Solution, calls it “brain fog.”

As a therapist, I see the correlation between food and mood particularly among teens. My first advice to a depressed teen is to eat better. Typically, they don’t like hearing that, but it’s worth a try. And when they do, they usually report feeling better.

Have you noticed any connection yourself between what you eat and how you feel?

    I agree with this premise and believe it whether science has proved it or not!
