Ways to Improve Memory
It is never too early to start improving one’s memory, and it can help to prevent annoyances such as forgetting people’s names or misplacing important items. Some simple steps to take to improve memory function include:
Getting a good night’s sleep – The brain requires adequate sleep in order to be able to recall and retain new information.
Playing games – Some games, such as crossword or Sudoku puzzles, require thought and concentration that can “work out” the brain. There are also websites, such as Lumosity.com, that are full of brain-exercising games.
Taking up a new hobby – Learning a new skill, such as a musical instrument, knitting, or painting, helps to keep the brain stimulated.
Eating properly – A diet of fresh fruits, vegetables, and lean meats helps to promote optimal brain function, while a diet high in processed foods and sugar can lead to decreased brain function and an overall “foggy” feeling.
By taking these simple steps, people have found that they can improve their memories a little bit each day.
