Anne's little world

FOLLOW ME

Hey you!

Wonderful to find you here! Over the years, I have written blogs for different magazines, on different themes, and sometimes within my own Supermood company. But throughout 2020, I wrote letters to myself. One that isn’t even meant to be re-read, but one that will grab ideas for this blog. I hope I manage to share with you something of my own little world full of comedy, drama (self-inflicted), wading in deep waters, and small air jumps of joy. Outwardly, it seems (nee) that there is a lot of blingblig and amazing experiences in my life, but the truth is pretty far from it. I’m too kind, hard to stress, over-analyze, procrastinate and at the same time scramble my head bad here and there. Yes? Excuse My French? I will make a lot of typos, apologies for them in advance.

I am writing this for a hotel in Marsk, on the last day of the year. Before undoing the little bubble, I relax in silence and enjoy the fact that there are no piles of paper, laundry linings, or sneaker hell in the hallway around me. A little round-the-clock escapism in a hotel is a great way to break free from the train of thought, gather strength and get a little distance into your daily life.

I am not going to list the good or bad things for 2020 now, but I want to talk about the brain drain it has caused. I have had to take responsibility for my own time in a different way and have been disappointed time and time again. For example, when filming a TV production, someone else is in charge of the schedule and, oddly enough, the brain fog disappears. Time management is delegated. When hours, days, weeks, and weekends keep chopping to be effective, I fail without help. I’ve hung way too much in the soma, swaying the handsets in my ears listening to music, trying to meditate (with poor success) and honestly avoid doing work. And it’s not that I don’t love my irregular and volatile job description, I’ve had to be disappointed that the spine melted at the same time as the lockdown. What is that brain fog then?

? Brain fog usually refers to the feeling when an idea is not moving, concentration is difficult, and things are forgotten. Even the speech stumbles, and everyday doing doesn't mean anything. There is no medical definition for brain fog. It's not about the disease, it's about personal experience.

If you think through the body, exercise, varied foods and fatty acids, for example, directly affect the brightness of the thought. When in 2017 I experienced many deaths in my immediate circle, a friend came to my aid and said outright that the fats were in order. See, fats? The neurolipids in the form of Biomed ice cubes were amazingly effective. The overturns disappeared, the mind brightened and the mood improved. Those ice cubes that work wonders are only relatively expensive, so they weren’t left for regular use, although I was amazed at how much they affected emotion management. The walks with the big brothers are awesome. When one hangs on the couch, the other kicks out. Fortunately, the power of the mother’s example has been so effective. We go for a run, even at half force. And now I have infected the habit with my own son. And if you add a couple of other forms of exercise to that, that’s enough.

Rhythm. It’s wonderful to listen to music, but it takes me so much that for myself it’s not suitable for improving my ability to concentrate. It does create a feeling, but if the day of the 90% is buzzing in the handsets, the day really won't be anything anymore. The same goes for other listening, be it an audiobook, a TED talk or some other nonsense.

The only sensible way to get rid of the brain fog has been to lower your level of demand and? and it goes something like this:

    • make a realistic (modest enough) list of what to accomplish the next day
    • wake up at the same time in the morning, do not wander in bed even if you basically could
    • eat a decent breakfast
    • be the first to do a nasty thing out of the way, like a sloppy call to the tax office
    • make a couple of other more demanding things off the list with the same frenzy
    • eat properly, stretch, move yourself
    • use the afternoon to do lighter work, reply to emails, or do something that doesn’t raise your pulse
    • eat properly again and go for a jog / exercise
    • in the evening, stop stressing what NOT to be done, just add them to your next day’s list
    • Also, give yourself some free time in the evening. Be it listening to music, slamming Finnish or staring at Netflix. It is useless to deny them.

If you’re an evening person, customize your locker, but don’t overdo it. It becomes that foggy feeling when you try to cram your day with too many responsibilities.

There are a lot of tips on the web for managing foggy, but would it be wonderful to hear your tips? The little guys you got your day on?

Happy New Year!

Love

    Hello, good writing. Yes, that brain fog is on the move, I think the hectic world is adding to it. In fact, I have tried to stop every day for nothing. A moment of silence, giving space to emptiness, it opens my world. If this empty space can be taken in nature, the better. I have work, that is, snowy nature, well, first of all, to sleep. ? Happy New Year and well!

      Thanks Make! Yes, much better for waders in the wild than at home with a laptop. ? And perhaps the awareness and understanding that nothing will end in the end. There is always something going on. I have to train that stop myself because I have something to improve on. I read somewhere that if even a minute? so one minute? time only focuses on breathing, learns the brain to calm down. And then that time can be increased in small increments, because it’s basically a learning process. Happy New Year!

    I can fully identify with the brain fog! I just read somewhere that the coming menopause might also cause a brain fog as well as make things harder to start? For me, this may be the case as well ... somehow it came as a relief when I think that there may be an explanation for this fogging in between and I can't.

      Thanks for Saija's comment! I'm sure it's not an inaccessibility.? There have been a lot of us suffering from cerebral palsy last year in particular, and you can really find a lot of information on Google. Black feels that that foggy feeling is related to quite a few things. In my own life, that year of deaths 2017 was one of confusion and doing in the fog. I did, although nothing felt at all and the keys were lost every other day, the other day my purse in the freezer because I didn’t focus on what I was doing, but my mind was just elsewhere. And now, under pressure, I have repeated this sentence: A person can only be in one place at a time. And this applies to both physical presence and mental acuity. Halaus x

    Hello Anne! Better this year for all of us? The brain fog you're photographing threatens all telecommuters, I'm sure… It would be so nice to see you sometimes, right next door. PS. where are those lovely long boots from? Really beautiful. Be well! Terkuin Tarja

      Hey wonderful Tarja! Now if you ever miss those times when you worked together! Could at least brain fog the gang. ? The boots are a stylist's discovery, they have a wonderful color! These neighbors could see Maxil some beautiful day. ?
