Schedule long jogs
If you are severely brain drained, you may want to practice power yoga or long jogs. I often tell my patients, “You are the true expert of you.” In my book Heal Your Drained Brain, I describe the 4 subtypes of drained brains. If your brain is healing after trauma or you have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue, interval training may not the form of exercise I’d start with. If you’ve had a long, stressful day, I’d also say that’s a day for yoga or a long jog. Meditative movement (e.g., yoga, tai chi) can help heal your mind and body. You can even jog mindfully. As you’re jogging, bring your attention to your five senses. Can you feel the temperature of the air on your cheek? This can help reset your brain after a stressful day––or even for those who are recovering from more intense stress like losing a jog.
