Help with Brain Fog - Reading Practice, Part 1

Help with Brain Fog - Reading Practice

Brain fog can cause problems with focus, memory and language. This reading practice will help you “exercise” your brain. As you continue through the practice, the reading material you choose should gradually be more challenging. 

In Part 1, you’ll read popular magazines. They should include many pictures with the text. This mix of pictures and text lessens the strain on your focus and attention. It also allows you to develop a reading habit without triggering your brain fog symptoms. 

In Part 2, you’ll choose easy-reading paperback or hardcover books.

And in Part 3, you’ll read work-related or other materials. Each part lasts for 3 weeks.

We suggest that you read new sections of the magazines, books, or other materials each time. 

Instructions for Part 1

Materials: Have your reading material available. For Part 1, we’d like you to use a paper copy of a popular magazine. Choose one that interests you. It should have text and pictures.

When: Once a day for 3 weeks.

Where: In a quiet place without distractions.

What: Read the magazine for 20 to 30 minutes.

After: Rest your brain for a few minutes. Close your eyes. Take a slow deep breath in through your nose, then breathe out through your mouth.

Repeat 5-10 times.

You’ve completed the practice.
