Health Tip: Help yourself to remember

Normal changes to the brain can cause a slight amount of memory loss as you get older. The Harvard Medical School suggests these tips that may help boost your memory:

  • Stay organized with calendars, lists and address books.

  • Absorb new information in small, digestible pieces that are easier to remember.

  • Focus on all of your senses when you learn something new.

  • Use your brain by writing down new information, drawing a picture of it or saying something out loud.

  • Repeat new information, and gradually space out study times.

  • Take a class run by a medical professional on improving your memory.
