Wisdom Wednesday: Brain Fog and Meditation

Since crashing last April, my brain has been in a constant state of fog, ranging from still functioning but slightly confused to can’t think, can’t move, can’t do anything at all. Most the time I feel like the guy in the picture below.

What does this have to do with meditation?

To begin with the fog seemed good, it helped me to just zone out and I didn’t have to focus on my other symptoms. As I began to improve slightly though I realised it really wasn’t helping!

In the meditations I try to do daily you are meant to focus on your breath and let everything else flow past you. I thought I was doing this well when the fog was at it’s worst, but I realise now I wasn’t focused on anything at all.

No matter how hard I try, Foggy Frog will not let me stay focused at all!

Meditation is important for my mental, spiritual and physical health at the moment and because of this I will keep trying. It’s just getting extremely frustrating lately and I want to do better.

Do you have problems with the fog making it hard to focus?

Do you practice meditation?
