It's a clinical symptom that is generally characterized by a lack of focus, memory loss, and trouble trying to learn how to carry out new tasks. It's common for you to be left feeling discouraged. The major issue of brain fog is that it's such a common symptom it can make it difficult to determine the root cause.
What Is Causing Your Brain Fog?
Everyone has experienced boredom to some degree in his or her life. When someone feels under stimulated for extended periods of time, this chronic boredom may be a factor that leads to unhealthy and addictive behaviors such as excessive drinking, taking drugs, video gaming, sexual addictions or a need to live dangerously.
The feeling of boredom is not a pleasant one, and this discomfort is what drives people to find ways to avoid the feeling.
Boredom has also been associated with being less attentive and therefore with a greater risk of making mistakes, according to Eastwood. Imagine a boring, repetitive job such as driving heavy machinery. It would be so easy to get distracted and just a moment of feeling less attentive could lead to a dangerous accident.
There's more to it than that, though, and those types of relationships don't need to be romantic to offer you the benefits you're looking for. Close friends often share their deepest emotions with each other and exchange feedback without judgment or criticism. That's the beauty of truly fulfilling relationships.
It is a challenge to find those people and make those connections. Investing in relationships only to discover that there isn't a solid foundation or the other person doesn't value you in the same way you do them is utterly heartbreaking. It can be agonizing when that connection is broken and you go your separate ways, even if it's the right call. However, when you recognize a shared bond with someone it can be a truly magical connection and it's worth the risks.
