As you get older, the ability to memorize and remember decreases, and it is recommended that you engage in activities aimed at helping your memory to be as active as possible for a longer period of time, from a young age. Moreover, several scientific studies have shown that activities that help keep your memory strong contribute to the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease.
In order not to lose your ability to detect memories and to have a good memory in old age, you need to implement some daily habits as soon as possible:
1. Read every day
No matter what literary genre you appreciate, to get the best possible memory for an extended period of time, reading every day is recommended. Reading is one of the most beneficial activities mentally and intellectually. On the website of Libmag you can find new books at affordable prices so that you can buy any book you want, with express delivery, or, if you live in Bucharest, with direct pickup from the store, without paying courier fees. Include at least 15 minutes of reading in your daily schedule, to relax and keep your mind active.
2. Always be curious and keep yourself informed
Internet access is accessible to everyone, but it is necessary to use it in moderation and filter the information you read. When you want to know the answer to a question or search for a specific topic, you activate the part of your brain that is responsible for memory. When you maintain your curiosity even in adulthood and read books on general culture or books that introduce you to the latest changes in technology, economics, technology, etc., in addition to the fact that you will get information from reliable sources, your memory capacity will improve and your knowledge will expand. It is recommended to read such books also when you want to remember things you learned long ago, since forgetting is also part of the learning process.
3. Get enough rest
Stress built up over a very long period of time can also affect your rest schedule, and when you don’t get 7-8 hours of sleep each night, your brain and memory can take a hit. In the long run, this can lead to fatigue and affect your cognitive functions, including your memory. It is also recommended to avoid stressful situations in the long term as much as possible.
4. Eat right
Diet, time to rest, duration of stressful periods, as well as vices can all affect your physical and mental health. You can help your memory with the food you eat and the lifestyle you follow. Eating nuts, almonds or hazelnuts will give you a supply of vitamins and minerals that help your brain and memory. Other foods that are recommended to eat are fish dishes, fruits and vegetables, and low-sugar foods. Antioxidant tea is also good for memory.
5. Physical exercises
Active life is good for the whole body, and implicitly for the brain. As experts recommend, you need to exercise for at least 30 minutes a day to enjoy a healthy life. This habit may seem difficult to implement, but it is important to exercise every day, even if the time allotted for physical activity does not include 30 minutes. In order not to forget to exercise, it is a good idea to set a reminder at the time of your choice.
6. Relax and Meditate
To improve your mood, think optimistically and make the best decisions, both the brain and the whole body need rest, but also relaxation. Depending on feelings and interests, relaxation is a personal matter for each individual. However, with the help of meditation, you can quickly relax, and if you haven’t done so before, you can find materials online to help you, including guided audio meditations.
The sooner you begin to pay attention to your habits and get rid of harmful ones, the better your life will be, which will also be reflected in a better memory. Apply the healthy habits in this article today and start helping your memory.
