Your memory is incredibly vital to daily life. A considerable part of every day relies on your ability to remember things. Keep these simple tips in mind to keep your memory sharp, and you’ll see that for the minimal time that they take out of your day, you gain tons of benefits.


How can I keep my memory sharp?

  • Include physical activity in your daily or weekly routine
    • Physical activity and exercise significantly increase the blood flow around your body, which includes your brain. The more blood that your brain receives, the more oxygen it receives, and the more efficiently it can operate.
  • Eat a healthy diet
    • Eating healthier overall can significantly improve your memory, but certain foods can help you target your memory. Some of these foods include fish that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids (usually the fattier fish), blueberries, and turmeric. Avoiding drugs and alcohol can significantly help your memory as well.
  • Keep your brain engaged
    • Stimulate your brain with puzzles and games. Change up your routine. This can help your brain think more analytically and store information more efficiently. This will lead to significantly improved memory.
  • Stay socially active
    • Some of the things that stimulate and challenge your brain the most involve social activity. Socializing also helps curb depression and stress, both of which significantly reduce your memory power. Look for opportunities to interact with friends and family, and discover new perspectives.
  • Try meditating
    • Meditation helps calm your brain and gives you a second to reorganize yourself mentally. Meditation doesn’t take very long: usually about ten to fifteen minutes of dedicated time a couple of times a week. There are many apps and YouTube videos that can help guide you through the process if you’re new to meditation.


Overall, it’s important to keep your memory sharp, and it’s not too hard to do so.
