Based on cutting-edge research, Overcoming Stress-Induced Brain Fog offers quick solutions you can put to work right away, including exercises based in awareness, mindfulness and acceptance, and self-compassion. With these ten easily accessible tools, you’ll find your way out of the haze toward clarity, improved memory, and a greater presence to enjoy life.
