We all have so much going on in our lives that it’s inevitable that our brains will have trouble keeping up. Can’t remember the name of your new neighbors, or your bank account number, or when you scheduled your next haircut? That’s perfectly normal. But here are a few strategies for improving your memorization skills.
Get more sleep and exercise: Physical activity sends more oxygen to your brain, and a lack of sleep can be detrimental to your creativity, problem-solving skills, and critical thinking.
Give your brain a workout: Crossword puzzles, playing a musical instrument, and even a game of ping-pong are great for keeping your brain sharp and active.
Change your diet: It’s not just a myth—eating fish, especially cold-water fish like tuna and salmon, is great for your brain. Your brain also benefits from eating more fruits and vegetables, and from drinking green tea.
