BH4BP #38 – Memory: Maintain Your Mental Might!

In some ways, your brain functions like a muscle.  If you don’t use it, you lose it.  If you train it though, it works better.  The more you challenge your brain, the better you are able to process and remember information and the better your memory is.  So, if you think you have poor memory, there is still hope.  You can take steps to improve it.

This episode is the second part of a two part series on memory.  For those of you that are new to this podcast, make sure to download and listen to last week’s show, #37 first.  In this show, I will give you tips and strategies to sharpen your mind and improve your memory.

Other episodes referenced in the podcast are:

  1. Dealing with Stress: Parts 1 and 2 (Shows #31 and #32)
  2. Trouble Sleeping? (Show #15)

Some references I used while researching this show are The New Wellness Encyclopedia, www.fi.edu and helpguide.org.

The Blog Posts for this week are:

  1. Don’t Judge a Bread by Its Color!
  2. I Got Your Back!: Back Pain Prevention Tips

If you like the show, please head on over to iTunes and give me a nice review.  It’s a great way to give me some good exposure and can help me get more listeners.  Thanks for listening, everyone!

    I agree with you that traveling is a great way to stimulate memory. Thanks

    A good memory is so impressive! Remember names, factoids, tidbits etc. I need to work on it…BIG time! 🙂 Have a nice weekend!

    Loved the podcast. Interestingly, I listened to a CD this morning that discussed memory and brain health. Much of the advice was identical. Keep up the great work!

    Another great tip is to play video games — yes, video games. There are enormous numbers of titles to choose from which are puzzles or otherwise designed to stimulate your brain. (Nintendo’s Brain Age is the most well-known.) Even plain-vanilla video games, which weren’t meant to be educational or stimulative, are far more involving to your brain than watching TV.

    Great point. I highly agree with the muscle part and if it isn’t used it is losed!
