People sign up for newsletters and read blogs for a variety of reasons. If you get tons of newsletters in your mailbox a day, that’s a GOOD thing, and here’s why.
In order to keep your Memory sharp, you need to constantly learn and grow.
Your full mailbox proves that you like to learn and try different things, and that might be just what you need to help your Memory as you get older.
It’s not just that glass of wine at dinner time that makes us forgetful (thank goodness!). As we get older, we naturally lose brain cells, and when those cells are lost, the connections between surviving brain cells become weaker, making a less efficient path for the chemicals that send messages within the brain.
Some people think that doing daily crossword puzzles or playing Scrabble will help. However, you actually need to watch your diet, exercise and self-care and keep yourself healthy overall. Here are a few ways you can help yourself stay alert:
- If you know that you are going to have a conversation that you MUST remember, write down what’s on your mind right now. Clearing your mind to paper will help you concentrate of what’s being said right now.
- Get enough sleep. Test this by going to bed a half hour early and see how it feels.
- Exercise three to six times a week (CardioAND weight training).
- Keep your brain oxidated by eating more fish and healthy fats. Drink green tea (or plain water) instead of soda or power drinks.
- And, learn just for the sake of Learning! I bet you didn’t know that one of the MOST effective brain workouts is to learn a foreign language.
This all may sound a bit strange for memory techniques, but your mind is kind of plastic in nature and changes to respond to different stimuli. The more you learn, the more connections you create in your brain.
Can you see a pattern here?
As we get older, we lose brain cells making weaker connections-but learning CREATES connections.
Now, aren’t you glad you read this Blog?
