How can you improve your memory at any age?

How can you improve your memory at any age? I recently read an article by Drs. Oz and Roisen. Here are their thoughts:

Brain scientists love to say the brain is “plastic,” which means it’s flexible and capable of growing new cells and making strong new connections between them, at any age. That means brain-friendly lifestyle changes can help ward off memory problems. Here are some lifestyle upgrades:

Would you like to think better?

Have you ever been so overwhelmed and frazzled that you can’t think straight? If you’re like me and many other highly sensitive people, I’m sure that you can relate to this situation.

You can read, talk with other people, or even play educational games. Any activity that can keep your brain working and helps you socialize with others will increase your well-being. (more…)
