MEMORY BOOSTERS

Just because the days are short-lived this time of year doesn’t mean your memory has to be.

Here are some tips on how to make your memory into a steel trap:

  • Sleep on it – Experts say that this is this the best way to improve memory, because you’re allowing your brain to “solidify the connections between neurons.”
     
  • Walk it out – Exercising 3 times a week raises your heart rate and gets blood flowing to your brain. This helps promote memory in a big way.
     
  • Get fishy – Toss your supplements like ginko biloba for a more tried and true product like fish oil, which is associated with lowering the risk of dementia.
