Brian fog, it’s real and completely misunderstood. Living with a chronic illness, not only means having an overactive brain to succeed at a 24/7 job we never signed up for, but having a mind that just doesn’t work the way we’d like it. Similar to Mom brian or just not being able to think due to fatigue, brain fog can end a day in its tracks.
But what if there was a way to stay on the tracks, or at the very least on a similar path?
There are many organizational methods top CEOs and leaders use in order to run their businesses and lives. Could it hurt a Spoonie to try to adapt some of these methods? What if we followed proven methods to fight back against their chronic illness?
Below are just some of the tools that I have read about and seen work with countless examples, but they aren’t the same tools. They are adapted to make life easier as a Spoonie.
