Brain fog can be one of the most difficult fibromyalgia symptoms to treat.

However, there are many tips, tricks, and tools that you can use to set up your life so that brain fog has a smaller impact.

In this episode, Tami shares her top ten brain fog tips and the tools she uses every day to stay on top of her business and personal life. All ten of these tips you can implement right now, today. No prescription or doctor required!

Key Points

  • Set up your life so that you don’t have to remember and it doesn’t matter if you have fibro brain. That way, brain fog has a smaller impact on your life. 
  • Use color coding on your calendar. In the midst of fibro fog, you can recognize color faster than you can read words.
  • Try using a Daily Record of Events to make notes of conversations and events during your day. This can jog your memory when you’re foggy.
  • Follow your body’s natural rhythms — even if it’s not what the rest of the world does. 
  • Alarms can be super super helpful for foggy brains with no sense of time.
  • Create habits and routines so your brain can do things without you thinking about it.
