Do your kids tease you about how often you lose your keys? Do you forget where you’ve placed an important document at work? Although many people chalk these experiences up to a part of aging, we believe there is much to be done about memory loss. Your brain can be trained and strengthened through simple brain exercises. These exercises will improve your memory and keep your brain functioning at a top-notch pace.

3 Simple Brain Exercises to Implement Every Day

Fortunately, improving your memory is as simple as 1 – 2 – 3. Consider the following three brain exercises that we suggest you complete daily:

  1. Participate in matching games
  2. Practice memorization
  3. Stimulate your brain by reading

Additionally, when you are trying to remember something important or find an item, try to eliminate distractions. When your brain must focus on too many things at once, it is overloaded and has trouble concentrating.

Risk Factors That May Contribute to Memory Loss

Implementing the exercises above will help sharpen your brain’s function and help you with your memory! But, did you know there are certain risk factors to be aware of regarding increased memory loss? If you suffer from depression or high stress, your brain is more susceptible to memory loss because it is dealing with those negative emotions.
