Boost Your Memory With These Tips

By Brandi Goodman 

Memory declines as we age. For some, it may start as a forgotten word or not remembering why you walked into a particular room. Others may find it difficult to remember to take their daily medications. A large decline doesn't have to happen quickly, though. You can boost your memory with a few tips and keep your mind as sharp as possible for as long as possible. 

Learn Something New

Doing the same things every day won't continue to work your brain. You need to learn and so something new so your brain can expand and grow. If you want to boost your brain health, try learning something new and challenging that really makes your mind work. If you know you're good at word challenges and do a daily crossword puzzle, change it up and try some sudoku for math instead. 

Do Aerobic Exercise

You need to get blood and oxygen flowing to your brain if you hope to keep it functioning optimally. Aerobic exercise can help with this. Go for a walk. Take a swim. Try a workout video at home. You should be breathing heavy and working up a sweat to really have it count.

Set a Sleep Schedule

It can be difficult to maintain your memory if you're constantly missing sleep. You'll be left feeling tired and unable to concentrate or think clearly. Set a sleep schedule so you can get the rest your brain requires. A well-rested mind can think clearly, remember things better, and work efficiently. Try to go to bed at the same time every night, perhaps using lavender in a diffuser to help you relax or taking a warm bath beforehand. 

Kick Stress to the Curb

Stress is a common factor in memory struggles. When your brain is consistently left feeling stressed out and burdened, it can make it difficult to remember things. You need to do everything you can to kick stress to the curb. Keep a positive thoughts journal. Spend time with friends. Find time to laugh every day. Take breaks when you're feeling overwhelmed. Make time for yourself and the things you enjoy. A stress-free life is better for your brain.

Always do what you can to keep your memory intact. Aging already leaves us vulnerable to many changes. A decline in our mental state can be detrimental. Use these tips to boost your memory and keep your mind working well.
