Anybody who has ever lost their keys or forgotten what they needed to buy at the grocery store, or arrived at the wrong time for an appointment with a doctor knows that memory is a challenge. While you could easily recite the 50 American states, year of your children, and what you ate for lunch yesterday, how do you remember how many cars your parents drove home? Or how many emails you have read in the past week. We’ll show you how to improve your memory. Omega-3’s, which are essential for memory preservation, should be a part of your daily diet. Omega-3 can be found in many foods, including nuts, flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, soybeans and fish. You can also take fish oil supplements if any of these foods doesn’t appeal. This will help keep your memory functioning properly. Regular stretching and other exercises are a great way to improve your long-term memory. Because the brain controls 15% of blood flow, these exercises help keep the brain’s arteries open. Stretching can also increase energy, flexibility, and relaxation. This all contributes to improved long-term memory. *Practice using your memory regularly to keep it in top shape. If you don’t use your memory regularly, it will slowly get weaker over time. It is best to challenge it every day in your daily life. You can do simple tasks like a crossword puzzle, or more complex ones such as trying to remember the names of all the members of an arachnid tribe. Find fun and challenging ways to test your memory every day. It is usually easier to organize large amounts of information into smaller units or categories than it is to try to store them in memory. It is easier to remember a phone number if you have three numbers that are three, three, and then four, as opposed to a long string with ten numbers. These same strategies work for computer passwords and social security numbers. *Eating protein-rich foods will help improve your memory and provide fuel for your body. Fish, for example, which is high in protein, are rich in neurotransmitters. They are vital to brain performance and are essential to your health. *Mnemonic devices can be used to help you remember things. Mnemonic products can be described as a set of clues that helps you associate difficult things with easier ones. An example of this is to use an acronym, rhymes and visual images. You can even associate an amusing story with whatever you are trying to remember. These strategies can be used every day to improve your memory. You’re likely to remember all 50 states. However, you won’t be able to recall the exact number of cars you saw on your way home. But you might remember what you ate for lunch.
