How to Reboot Your Brain When It Breaks Down The Darius Foroux Show

In my experience, there are a few things you can do when your brain feels clogged. Get rid of your overwhelming goals: What’s a big goal that you really want to achieve badly? Something big. Delete it from your brain. Focus on the present and enjoy yourself. You can always come back to your goal later. Stop multitasking: Focus on one thing at a time. Take a few days off or work less: Your brain needs some rest! Limit negative inputs: Avoid negative people for a while. And also avoid negativity on social media and the news. Take a long walk: You’ll feel much calmer while getting some exercise. Sleep early: Avoid screens and take a book with you to bed. You wouldn’t keep your computer running without ever restarting it. Likewise, your brain needs to rest and rejuvenate, especially when pushed to its limits. More on each tip in this episode. Join the Financial Freedom Challenge I've created a free 5-day email course.

I also have a library of podcast episodes available in case you’re new to my work. You will especially enjoy my podcast if you have enough from listening to the same people on different podcasts. I only interview people who’s work I find valuable. To me, that’s the best way to have a conversation that’s also valuable for the reader.

If you’re into interviews, check out my conversations with Derek Sivers and Cal Newport. Listeners enjoyed those episodes a lot.

If you’re into productivity, check out “How To Focus Better” and “How To Beat Procrastination With Systems.” Those episodes were received well my listeners who want to get more done.

If you’re curious about personal finance and wealth building, check out my popular episode “5 Tips To Get Rich Slowly.” In that episode, I talk about several practical tips I’ve learned. Not the standard get rich quick advice.

I also have an episode on strength training and fitness. I’ve been working out since I was 16 and experienced many injuries. On “5 Tips For More Effective Strength Training” I talk about how I changed my approach. As a result, I feel stronger and I’m no longer injured several times a year.

I’ve also experimented with added audio articles to my podcast. For example, I recorded an audio version of 10 Career Mistakes I Wish I Had Never Made. That’s one of my most-read articles on careers.
