How then can we boost this memory? Read on:
Yes, we know the saying “those who sleep too much will be poor”, but trust us, you need to sleep. The best and easiest way to strengthen your neurons—the connectors in your brain—is to get in more sleep. With the level of stress you go through in this part of the world, you need more sleep to get you relaxed and your brain prepared for the coming tasks.
- Use it!!
Don’t be mentally lazy. Exercising your mind is the best way to keep it sharp. If you don’t use it, you lose it. Get into beading or crafting, read, or get some other mind-challenging hobby.

Blueberries are rich in antioxidants that keep the brain from getting inflamed, and leafy greens are packed full of vitamin C and other phytonutrients that help keep memory loss at bay. Omega-3 and DHA-rich fish oils can also help your brain grow new neurons.
Take a few minutes to sit still and focus. We’re bombarded with so many stimulants that it’s hard to spotlight one thought. Daily exercises and controlled breathing will help you concentrate on one thing and one thing only.
