I am a thirty-something year old guy and I forget a ton of things unless they are written down. It’s become a consequence of the gadget world we live in I suppose. If it’s not in my Blackberry, it doesn’t get done. While I can deal with that, I cringe when thinking of my memory getting weaker as I age. If I cannot remember the 5 items I went to the grocery store for now, what it going to happen in 20 years?
While it’s not a fool proof plan, there are some things we can all do to tweak and tone our memories – just like our muscles.
Just like you can’t expect to get a six-pack stomach by sitting on the couch all day, don’t expect your memory to stay at the top of its game without a proper workout. Your brain needs to pump mental iron consistently to boost up its memory muscle. Remember, it’s up to you to never forget that you are worth remembering.
