The brain is one of the most important body organs because it controls your life and well-being. But it may deteriorate over the years, causing memory loss. Besides aging, memory loss can be due to many other factors, such as brain damage, alcohol, constipation, dehydration, depression, and drugs.
Learn to manage memory problems:
- Learn to process new information step by step, and one step at a time. That is, allow yourself to get the hang of it before you store it in your mind.
- Get off the beaten track from time to time in order to stimulate your brain. Do something out of the ordinary every now and then.
- Engage in challenging endeavors, such as a crossword puzzle, learning a new musical instrument or a new language.,
- Reduce stress, which interferes with concentration and staying focused.
- Use meditation to quiet the mind and to avoid compulsive thinking.
- Avoid the principle of "present-mindedness" to avoid absent-mindedness. Practice concentration, and appreciate living in the present moment.
You may have a great body, but you also need a great mind to go with it. To have a great and powerful mind, you need to exercise your cognitive faculties. Writing (writing a blog), reading, sleeping (you store your memories in the deepest dream state, known as Rapid Eye Movement)), gardening (sharpening brain power with plant names, growth characteristics, soil conditions, etc.), music listening and playing (changing neuron activities and enhancing sensory skills).
Memory has everything to do with mental awareness. Therefore, learn how to improve your memory through concentration, creativity and imagination, and visualization.
Of course, memory has also to do with nutrients, such as iron deficiency, which may affect your brain chemicals, and antioxidants to prevent the formation of free radicals that may damage brain cells.
