Life can be quite distracting at times.  There are days when remembering items on the grocery list is difficult and recalling an acquaintance name is near impossible.  Then, there are times when everything is easy to remember.  It is important to keep our brain in top shape, just as we would do for any other part of our body.  The more we take the time to mentally challenge ourselves, the better off we’ll be when it comes to age-related memory loss.

When planning a trip to the grocery store, make it an opportunity to test your memory.  Write out the shopping list, flip it over, and try to write the list again without looking.  This can be practiced with a cooking recipe as well.  After reading the ingredient list, try to write down the items needed on a separate piece of paper.  Doing this often is a great way to boost memory.
