As a proud Leo, I really don’t like to admit I have times when my mind isn’t as sharp as I want or think it should be. I’m not referring to the “normal” age-related occasional memory lapse that I’ve been warned about. This is more like having my skull filled with smushed peas and trying to write or speak coherently.
There are three times in my life when I experienced serious “Brain Fog”: Pregnancy, Anesthesia and Divorce. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
As I sit in my basement home office, trying to concentrate on two computer monitors, get my printer to work, use some annoying app to get and make phone calls- I feel it creeping in. It’s getting harder and harder to focus and be productive.
As our quarantine continues, I urge you to join me in just taking a break. My workload has ballooned (in my mind) to a 24/7 obligation because there is no end to the workday. Have you experienced this?
Try to take a deep breath. Distract yourself with something positive. Hmmm…I am going to make myself some kettle corn!
Stay safe everyone and take care. I can hear my mom’s voice saying, “This too shall pass.”
