Brain Fog: Sarah’s Weekly Newsletter

Wednesday, July 15

Now that I have an AC, being stuck at home for most of my days is starting to feel quite more enjoyable! However, I think things will perk up even more next week, when I start my new job at Starbucks. I am so excited to meet new people and become a barista, and I’m even excited to get up early for my shifts! I definitely feel more productive and generally better about myself when I get up early.

I’m not sure if I’ve already mentioned this, but lately I’ve been trying to focus on making more positive lifestyle changes. For example, I’ve been trying to keep dibs on how much water I drink daily, and my current goal is to drink at least 60ml per day. I’ve also been working out a lot more, which was strenuous at first, but now it’s getting easier. I know it’s such a cliche when people say this, but I genuinely do feel great after a good workout! I feel energized and strong, and physically, my body feels amazing. 

Peep my beautiful salad.

So those two things have been making me feel a lot better lately, and I’m really happy to be taking steps towards improving my wellness. Once I move in with Nathaniel some day, we’ll be able to motivate each other to stay healthy as well. He enjoys exercising as well, so I’m sure we’ll be hitting the gym together after it is safe to do so.

I accidentally slept too much today, and as a result, my brain is feeling foggy. Does that ever happen to you? 

Anyway, it’s mid-afternoon now, I’m trying to combat my drowsiness by drinking lots of water and keeping my brain occupied. I’m looking for a new Netflix show to devour, so if you guys have any suggestions, let me know!

Anyway, I’m starting work on Monday, and I’m super excited to get out of the house and have something new to do. I’ve wanted to work at Starbucks for months now, and even though it may not sound like the most exciting goal to have, I genuinely am really looking forward to it. I think it sounds like an amazing opportunity to meet new people and keep my mind busy, as well as a much-needed income.

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all doing well. I’m doing pretty well, but I did have another rough night of sleep and I’m hoping this doesn’t become habitual for me. I’m also dealing with a bit of brain fogginess/dissociation, but unlike past experiences, I’m trying not to panic or overthink. I’m just doing my best to take care of myself and upkeep some sort of routine to comfort myself, so today’s agenda included laundry, mopping, vacuuming, and running errands. I was able to squeeze in a little baby nap after that (which I don’t normally do,) and now I’m burning my favorite candle in the living room and getting some writing done. There’s a chance I might see Buck at some point over the couple of days, so that would really brighten me up a lot. I’m planning a tie-dye/pizza date night for us, so I’ll be sure to let you guys know if that ends up happening! Stay safe, and continue to take care of yourselves.
