How to Prevent Memory Loss as You Get Older
By Drake Mariani, Founder, MemLok Bible Memory System
Memory Loss is a Big Deal as We Get Older, But it Doesn't Have to Be Anymore
As we grow older, we start observing changes in our ability to remember things.
Sometimes you can’t recall a person when they greet you or while entering another room you forget why you came here in the first place.
Such memory issues can occur at any age but as we get older the fleeting memory problems tend to upset us more.
But there’s a way to deal with the issue even when you have reached your senior years.
In fact, there are things you can do before you get old to prevent memory loss. And if you're already there and are starting to see signs of forgetfulness, you can…
bring your memory back.
I was reading an article by Mustafa Husain, MD, director of the geriatric psychiatry division at Duke University School of Medicine who says,
"Just like physical exercise, mental exercise is good for you. Play cards, join a book club, watch a football game with friends, or play a brain-training app. Any mentally challenging activity will keep your mind sharp."
Memory Exercises Are Like Taking Your Brain to the Gym
Let’s be realistic…
If you haven't gone to the gym or exercised in a while, you can't expect to run a marathon your first day. It takes time to build up your muscles and stamina.
Do a little bit every day and you get stronger and better.
What am I talking about?
As we get older, we often don’t do any exercises let alone memory exercises. But you know what? If we keep learning new things and recall them more often like we used to do as kids, our memory will become sharper.
No matter your age, when you believe you can improve your memory and you translate your belief into practice with memory exercises, memory loss won’t remain a big deal anymore.
