Forgetting things can be extremely frustrating, whether it was a day ago, a week ago, or a year ago. Finetune your memory and recharge your mind with these simple, everyday techniques.
Meditation: meditation is scientifically proven to clear the mind and relieve stress, thereby aiding memory.
Get moving: physical exercise pumps oxygen to the brain, which in turn increases its function.
Nutrition: good nutrition is essential for proper brain function. Eat plenty of antioxidant-rich fruits (especially blueberries), cruciferous vegetables, green leafy vegetables and foods containing omega-3 fatty acids such as oily fish and free-range eggs.
Memory aids: these include making lists, writing yourself notes and using mnemonics.
