Memory Boosters Food
Foods that have Omega 3 fats to devour are:
- olive oils
- leafy greens.
Cinnamon may be a memory boost, although I've read that the cinnamon scent is really the true boost. Since I enjoy cinnamon, honey, cocoa and coffee, I combine them in my coffee for a real treat in the morning. The cocoa is genuine (no sugar or anything else in it), the honey sweetens it, the cinnamon gives more anti-oxidant and possible memory boost to the already healthy coffee. Yummm!
- playing games (cards, chess, video, board)
- learning something new (back to college, trade school, take a new class, join a book club)
- exercise (cycle, walk, run, solve puzzles, visit a museum, plant a garden, mow a lawn, shovel snow, babysit, doodle)
- dance (around the house, at a class, at a dance, in a play).
It helps greatly to understand whatever you want to remember. Then you can review, rehearse, and repeat it to increase the boost. Before you go to bed, think about what you want to remember, then sleep. More often than not, the memory will present itself the next day.
Another easy memory boost is for remembering names of people. Really observe the person's face, and then, repeat his name after being introduced. Ask him a question to help the added memory of his name. Somehow this association makes the memory viable.
Evidently teeth plaque is bad for the brain. It contributes to gum disease which relates to brain health. Flossing diminishes plaque and gum disease. So, floss a couple times daily, and keep better oral and brain health.
Remember to get 8 plus hours of sleep!
