How Is “Stress” Affecting Your Memory?

Short Term Memory is absolutely affected by your stress level.  Steady blood sugar levels are important to how healthy your brain can function and your cognitive function is affected by your nutritional status.  If you have a stressful job, high carb/sugar diet, high caffeine intake and sleep poorly, you are producing higher levels of free radical damage leading to premature aging of your brain.  In short, you have very poor memory and lose your keys, can’t remember where you parked your car and names or numbers evade you at the wrong time.  
Fish Oils offer EFAs (essential fatty acids) are one of the important nutrients for brain power and help promote sufficient blood flow to the brain.  The best step is to get yourself on a supplemental program that targets all angles of brain support.  Reduce your stress with Meditation, Yoga or even a 5 to 10 minute break in a quiet space during the day.  Think about hormone balancing and if you have progesterone in your current program, use it at night as it promotes a more sedating response.  Get organized, so little things do not upset you so easily.  Do Exercise routines that support your Blood Type.  If you can’t change your work environment, supporting some of the other areas of your life may help.
