Memory Care Bradenton FL: Boost Your Memory in These Everyday Ways

March 31, 2021

Brain health is just as important as physical health at every stage of life. Though many seniors are in good mental health, many older adults are at risk of developing neurological and mental health disorders such as dementia. Fortunately, there are inexpensive tools in our everyday lives that help improve memory. Get proactive and follow these 6 ways to keep your brain healthy!

Practice Using Your Memory

The brain works just like a muscle – by regularly engaging in memory exercises, older adults can improve both short and long-term recall. An easy way to apply this tip is by making a list of grocery items and memorizing them, then testing yourself an hour later to see how many items you still remember. Also consider doing math in your head, drawing a map of a place you recently visited, or memorizing the lyrics to a song.

Engage in Thinking Games

Research has proven that brain-training games can keep your mental health sharp for up to 10 years longer. Make an effort to engage in games or puzzles that make you think, such as crossword puzzles, sudoku, or another game that excites you. These kinds of thinking games are easily accessible and can be found online or in other resources like newspapers.

Learn Something New

Besides learning an exciting new skill, taking on a new hobby can also improve both cognitive functioning and your sense of well-being – especially for seniors. For example, learning a new language involves intensive listening and internalizing new sounds which stimulates the brain. Artistic and athletic pursuits can similarly promote brain health, including simple activities like cooking or painting.

Stay Involved Socially

Older adults are less likely to develop depression, dementia, and feelings of isolation by regularly engaging in social activities and stimulating conversations. Invite family and friends to spend time with you or participate in video calls if you cannot meet in person. Furthermore, look into activities that are being held in your local groups or right here at Westminster Point Pleasant. These connections are some of the most effective ways to keep your mind busy and engaged.

Control Your Stress

Chronic stress can have debilitating consequences on our body and mind as we age. Stress management is a skill that must be learned, and it does not always come easy. To that end, it is important to find time each day to relax and reflect. Take active steps to feel at ease, such as exercise, spending time with an animal, or treating yourself to a spa experience, and your brain will be better equipped to fight mental health concerns.

Maintain a Healthy Diet and Physical Fitness

Recent research suggests that certain lifestyle changes can do more to ward off memory loss than drugs or medical treatments. Eating a balanced and healthy diet, as well as engaging in regular physical fitness, are both key ways to maximize brain function and improve overall health. Keeping your body sharp is critical in maintaining a healthy mind.

Some degree of memory problems is a normal part of aging. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways for older adults to maintain physical and mental health throughout their life – and they can all be done in your day-to-day functions. Find living resources that you can depend on for ultimate peace of mind and all-around health at Westminster Point Pleasant! Here, active lifestyles meet convenient access to all the luxurious amenities of the Sarasota-Bradenton area.
