How to Improve Your Memory as You Age

As we get older, our memory sometimes slips and becomes not as sharp as it once was.

Misplacing keys, forgetting your tasks for the day or not remembering someone’s birthday can be a common occurrence among elderly individuals. It is important that you talk to a doctor if you feel that you or your loved one is experiencing more than normal memory decline due to age. Dementia and Alzheimer’s are serious conditions and should never be ruled out, unless by a medical professional. If your doctor has chalked it up to declining memory due to age, try these tips to keep your mentally sharp.

  • Find a way to organize your life that will make sense, no matter what. If you have the space, hanging a key rack by your door may be a great way to make sure that you always know where your keys are. Assuming that you put your keys there when you come in the door, they will remain there until you are ready to leave. Another example is by labeling your drawers, your cupboards and your closet with the items inside. It is important that you are as organized as possible to avoid misplacing or forgetting things.
  • Eat a balanced diet that will help you keep your mind sharp and your body strong. It is advised that you speak to a medical professional or nutritionist to get an exact breakdown of what your meals should contain on a daily basis, but balance is key. You should maintain a well-balanced and healthy diet to keep yourself strong and healthy as you age.
  • Exercise both your body and your brain. It is advised that you are cleared by a doctor before engaging in physical activity, but by incorporating exercise in your routine, you are able to keep your body active and improve blood circulation. This can improve your memory and your brain health as you age. Just as you exercise your body, you should also exercise the mind. You or your loved one should engage in cross-word puzzles, card games or memorization games. This will keep your mind sharp and allow you to fight against memory decline as you age.

We hope that these tips and tricks will help you or your loved one maintain a sharp memory as they age. Please seek out medical attention if you or your loved one is concerned with their mental or memory health. It is important to rule out any underlying conditions that may affect memory health.
