Is your memory starting to play tricks on you?  Don’t panic!

Here are our 10 tips to stimulate your memory on a daily basis!

Training your memory is important to keep your brain active. It helps to stay alert and autonomous in daily life activities, but it also helps in the prevention of age-related diseases that can affect the memory

1. Do activities that promote concentration


Reading the newspaper or listening to the radio helps focus your attention. You can also play various games such as scrabble, chess, crosswords.

All of these activities allow you to train your concentration and, consequently, your attention. Being attentive allows us to focus our brain on one thing, to perceive all the details and to remove all the information that is not important. In this way, we will have a more precise image of objects or situations. Memorization will be easier and we will be able to make links between our knowledge more quickly.

2. Exercise


It has been proven that regular exercise improves our cognitive abilities.  Walk for half an hour a day! This will allow you to increase the amount of oxygen and blood flow in the body. This is perceived as a real benefit for the brain.

3. Eat carbs


Eat bread, rice, pasta or wholegrain cereals! The sugar in these foods nourishes your nerve cells.

The brain consumes more than 60% of the body’s glucose. It is therefore essential to give it some!

So make pleasure and benefits go hand in hand! 😉

4. Drink coffee


Coffee improves our brain performance.

In addition, caffeine fights against the aging of the body.

So, don’t hesitate to combine the benefits by combining bread and coffee for breakfast!

5. Sleep 


During sleep, memory consolidates the learning acquired by our brain into a stable and lasting memory!

Each stage of sleep plays a role:

  • Declarative memory (memories and knowledge) is stimulated during light and deep sleep.
  • Procedural memory (motor and perceptual skills) is stimulated during REM sleep.

Caution! Age-related sleep disorders can be caused by very severe memory disorders.

So sleep, rest, and let your memory work!

6. Chew gum


One study showed that chewing gum while learning new information helps to retain it. Indeed, this would have an impact on the hippocampus, a part of the brain intimately linked to memory.

Why not give it a try? 😉

7. Make connections


In addition to making links, people remember better the information that they assimilate.

Don’t just repeat someone else’s sentences by heart if they don’t ring a bell to you.

Rephrase, explain what you have just learned aloud, or even to someone else.

8. Take ownership of the information


Linking new information to something you already know helps you remember and remember it more easily.

For example, Suzie just read this article. She has just learned that chewing gum is good for maintaining her cognitive abilities.

9. Do not skip naps


Sleep is one of the key factors of memorization.

Without sleep, and even if you follow the 9 previous tips, you will not improve your memory. Nor should you use this as an excuse to have long, lazy mornings on Saturdays and/or Sundays. Even a short nap is effective.
