The Celtic captain missed the disappointing opening two games against Serbia and Macedonia at Hampden with a hip problem.
But speaking ahead of his club's UEFA Champions League Group G clash with Spartak Moscow, Brown said: "Hopefully I can make the Scotland squad.
"I am feeling good just now, I have played four or five games in the last couple of weeks and everything feels good.
"So I think the rest has definitely done me good, that's for sure."
Meanwhile, after a goalless draw in Celtic's first group game at home against Benfica, Brown is looking to go one better against Spartak.
He said: "I think we played well at home (against Benfica), I think we were unlucky that we didn't create as many chances as we would like to have done.
"We have got players in the team who can score - Kris Commons, who is dangerous from 20 yards out, Gary Hooper is on form as well so hopefully we can take this into the game
"We have had a few away victories in Europe this season and hopefully we can take that form into this game as well.
"But it is going to be hard, Spartak are a good team and we are going to have to play very well."
