Simple Ways To Improve Your Memory

Looking after your health is important, especially as you get older. Eating right and exercising regularly is the best way to keep on top of your physical health but we often neglect our mental health. The effects of poor brain health aren’t as obvious as physical health so it’s more difficult to know if there’s a problem before it’s too late. If your physical health is suffering, you’ll notice yourself putting on weight or getting out of breath easily but you might not notice if your memory is slowly getting worse. That’s why it’s important to take steps to keep your mind sharp, even if you feel ok. Here are some of the best ways to do it.

Get Enough Sleep 

A worrying number of people aren’t getting enough sleep. Studies by the CDC found that 1 in 3 people don’t get the recommended seven hours of sleep each night. Not getting enough sleep causes so many different health problems that you probably wouldn’t have thought of. It has been linked to an increased risk of obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure, but it also has a big effect on your brain. Memory is seriously affected if you aren’t getting enough sleep, and it also reduces your cognitive ability in general. There are a few reasons that you might not be sleeping enough. The first is probably your mattress. If you’ve got a bad one, you won’t rest properly every night. You might think that buying a mattress is simple but there are so many different types that it can be difficult to get to grips with. Visit www.sleepridiculouslywell.com for some great information on all of the different types available and the benefits of each. That should help you to find a good mattress that encourages healthy sleep.  

Using your phone before bed also makes it far more difficult to get to sleep. The light from the screen tricks your brain into thinking that it’s still daytime and stops it from releasing hormones that encourage you to sleep. Try to avoid using your phone for a few hours before going to be, you’ll find that it’s far easier to drift off. 

Eat Fish 

There’s a reason that people sometimes refer to fish as brain food. The Omega-3 oils in the fish are incredibly good for brain health. Studies into the benefits of fish found that people that eat it regularly are around 60 percent less likely to develop Alzheimer’s in later life. Eating seafood even once a week slows brain degradation down by around 10 percent so you’ll be sharper for longer. Visit www.thehealthyfish.com for more information. 

Mental Workouts 

Most people are engaging in the same activities every single day but your brain doesn’t like that. It’s better for your brain health if you engage in new activities that are unexpected. Using your brain for lots of different activities gives it a better workout and keeps it healthy. Think of it in the same way as your body, if you just exercised your arms and nothing else, you wouldn’t be healthy. You need a wide range of exercises. Taking a break every now and again to do puzzles is a brilliant way of improving your memory.

Even though you can’t see the effects of it on the surface, you should always keep on top of your memory.
