Week 3 – Brain Fog and the Impact of Insomnia



I’m continuing my exploration of Brain Fog and Perimenopause this week so prepare to discover how it’s intertwined with oestrogen levels and sleep (or rather, the lack thereof!). I’m going to delve into the intricacies of brain function, the potential drawbacks of oestrogen decrease, and how this can lead to that all-too-familiar brain fog.

I’ll share my personal experience with insomnia, and how overcoming it improved my cognitive health significantly. You’ll also learn about the essential role of sleep in managing brain fog and the various processes that could be affected when our sleep is sub-par.

But that’s not all! I’m also rolling out my top tips for a great sleep sleep including the importance of nutrition. Dig into the role of protein, tryptophan and learn about the benefits of magnesium glycinate with taurine, especially if you’re a perimenopausal woman.

Plus, I’ll discuss how herbs like valerian, passion flower, and ashwagandha can be your allies in the quest for better sleep. I’ll also guide you through the process of incorporating deep breathing and consistent bedtime routines into your life. Remember, dialing down on screen time before bed is crucial! We wrap up by highlighting the importance of self-care and positivity, because it’s not just about physical health, it’s about mental well-being too.
