If you have similar experiences, you might be suffering from "brain fatigue." This is a recently recognized sub-health condition common among professionals and students who engage in intense mental work. The effects of brain fatigue include difficulty concentrating, reduced comprehension, slower thinking, memory loss, and even diminished communication skills. These problems severely impact performance at work and school. 

Modern life typically involves high stress levels, which, according to psychiatrists, interfere with cognitive function and raise brain fatigue levels. This affects the autonomic nervous system and hormone secretion, exacerbates menopause symptoms, and increases the risk of depression. Dementia expert Professor Takehiko Fujino from Japan warns that prolonged brain fatigue may lead to dementia.
