Are you typically focused throughout the day?
I spend the majority with my brain feeling shut off/in fog. When I’m doing LeetCode or work, I just don’t feel like I’m there with my brain. One of the only times I do really feel focused is when I’m pumped up with adrenaline, but that’s just not sustainable. When someone starts talking paragraphs, I just glaze over and I’ll just try to find a written version to read because it’s too long to listen to. I’ve tried jogging/exercising but it doesn’t “bring me back”. Sometimes I do eventually focus well but it takes me like hours of sitting there really trying to focus on that one thing.
The reason I ask is because when I’m focused, I feel like I learn 100x faster than when I’m in brain fog.
