Foggy Noggin Breakdown
Luckily, I’m in great health. Lucky with family health history too. I exercise some. I don’t smoke. I do enjoy wine, but in moderation and never before 7:00 a.m. My diet is probably Average North American, with occasional pastry leanings. I am a coffee addict, yes — one glorious big cup every morning. Plus a decaf some afternoons.
Things are good, yet I have a woe: I almost always wake up feeling foggy-headed, not crystal-clear-headed of yore. Why is this?
Okay, I’m not 16 anymore. Or 21. Or 35. I’m 45. Is foggy morning head just part of normal ageing?
This brainfog does dissipate within a hour or so of waking but I miss that bounce-out-of-bed-and-raring-to-go Jannie feeling I used to take for granted.
Does anybody else experience this? Is there something I can do to wake as clear-headed and spritely every morning as I used to?
