From this study (3 months ago):
Hard time functioning daily. very confused and have a hard time following directions. Very wobbly and off balance. Groggy.

Normally this happens when we have improper diet, have stressful schedule, drink too much beverages, less sleep or may be lack of sound sleep.
It is necessary at this point to pay attention
1. to have NUTRITIOUS diet.
2. to drink sufficient water.
3. to go to the bed on time so can have 6-8 hrs rest
4. Most important Meditiate. "Mindfullness in plane English" a book can help properly in this case.
5. Please choose slow but permanent solution rather than seeking tablets mostly sleeping pills as quick solution.
