for the past few days, i’ve been researching and reading loads and loads of stuff on Africa (part of my job). The good news is, there’s so much interesting stuff. Bad news is, i don’t think i have enough brain space for them. So, since i’m (already) researching, i googled a few simple steps to improve one’s memory.
- Exercise your brain
Regularly “exercising” the brain keeps it growing and spurs the development of new nerve connections that can help improve memory.
- Exercise daily
Regular aerobic exercise improves circulation and efficiency throughout the body — including the brain — and can help ward off the memory loss that comes with aging.
- Reduce stress
Chronic stress does in fact physically damage the brain, it can make remembering much more difficult.
- Eat well and eat right
A healthy diet, however, contributes to a healthy brain, and foods containing antioxidants — broccoli, blueberries, spinach, and berries, for example — and Omega-3 fatty acids appear to promote healthy brain functioning.
- Sleep well
The amount of sleep we get affects the brain’s ability to recall recently learned information.
plus, these are amazing because you can just do them on your own without using any Human Growth Hormone (HGH). So, start practicing them now! (:
