Tips to get the most from your memory

As you've gotten older, have you noticed that you often find yourself marching around the house in a huff, searching for misplaced car keys or eyeglasses, or you just cannot remember the name of that new neighbor you met when walking the dog? It's frustrating, to be sure, but not inevitable — and there are things you can do to help keep your memory sharp.

"Most people get a little more forgetful with aging, but there are some simple things you can do to prevent memory slips and help your brain to learn and remember better," says Dr. Anne Fabiny, chief of geriatrics at Cambridge Health Alliance and an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School.

By age 60, more than half of adults have concerns about their memory. However, minor memory lapses that occur with age are not usually signs of a serious problem, such as Alzheimer’s disease, but rather the result of normal changes in the structure and function of the brain. This report describes these normal age-related changes and other more serious causes of memory loss — and how to distinguish between them.

Memory-boosting tips

Dr. Fabiny suggests the following tips and tricks:

  • Follow routines, such as leaving your car keys, glasses, and cell phone in the same place every day so that finding them becomes a "no-brainer."

  • Slow down and pay attention to what you are doing to give your brain's memory systems enough time to create an enduring memory.

  • Avoid distracting or noisy environments and multitasking — the major memory busters in today's fast-paced society.

  • Get enough sleep, reduce stress, and check with your doctor to see if any of your medications affect memory — all three are potential memory spoilers.

Is it forgetfulness or Alzheimer's?

Worried that your minor memory slips mean you are headed toward Alzheimer's disease? That's probably not the case. Like it or not, science shows that the ability to learn new information and recall it may decline somewhat after 50. "You just can't pull things out of your memory the way you used to at the same speed," Dr. Fabiny says.

But forgetfulness can be a serious issue if it's starting to interfere with daily tasks and routines, such as managing your healthcare and finances.

Use everyday habits to keep your memory in good shape

Your daily habits and lifestyle — what you eat and drink, whether you exercise, how stressed you are, and more — affect your mental health every bit as much as your physical health. A growing body of research indicates that regular exercise and a healthful diet can help protect your memory from aging-related decline.


Physical fitness and mental fitness go together. People who exercise regularly tend to stay mentally sharp into their 70s, 80s, and beyond. Although the precise "dose" of exercise isn't known, research suggests that the exercise should be moderate to vigorous and regular. Examples of moderate exercise include brisk walking, stationary bicycling, water aerobics, and competitive table tennis. Vigorous activities include jogging, high-impact aerobic dancing, square dancing, and tennis.

Exercise helps memory in several ways. It reduces the risk of developing several potentially memory-robbing conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke. Exercise is good for the lungs, and people who have good lung function send more oxygen to their brains. There is some evidence that exercise helps build new connections between brain cells and improves communication between them. Finally, exercise has been linked to increased production of neurotrophins, substances that nourish brain cells and help protect them against damage from stroke and other injuries.

Here are some ways to build physical activity into your daily routine:

  • Walk instead of driving when possible.

  • Set aside time each day for exercise. For extra motivation, ask your spouse or a friend to join you.

  • Use the stairs instead of the elevator.

  • Plant a garden and tend it.

  • Take an exercise class or join a health club.

  • Swim regularly, if you have access to a pool or beach.

  • Learn a sport that requires modest physical exertion, such as tennis.

Go Mediterranean

Mediterranean-type diets highlight whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and healthy fats from fish, nuts, and healthy oils. This eating style helps promote heart health and may also lessen the risk of memory and thinking problems later in life. In a study that followed more than 2,000 people over four years, those who most closely followed a Mediterranean-type diet had a lower risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. A later study suggested that following a Mediterranean-type diet could slow the conversion of mild cognitive impairment into full-blown dementia.

The types of fat that predominate in the diet also seem to affect memory. As part of the national Women's Health Initiative, 482 women ages 60 and older were observed for three years. They reported on their diets, and researchers tested their memory and thinking skills at the beginning of the study and at the end. Those who ate more unsaturated fat (which is abundant in vegetable oils and fatty fish) and less saturated fat (from red meat and full-fat dairy foods) had significantly less decline in memory than those who ate relatively little unsaturated fat.

Eating several servings of fruits and vegetables can also protect memory. Foods from plants are chock full of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that may protect against age-related deterioration throughout the body.

Working out? Time your meals right
When you work out after a big meal, you may feel sluggish or have cramps or an upset stomach. That's because your muscles and your digestive system are competing with each other for energy. On the flip side, if you don't eat before you exercise, especially right away in the morning, you may feel weak, faint or tired. To strike the right balance, eat a light snack before exercising. After a big meal, wait a few hours before hitting the gym.

By Ruthie Livingston

They provide relief through an alternative kind of therapy involving adjustment and manipulation. Thus the art and science of chiropractic medicine is akin to massage, acupuncture, and yoga.

Those who wake up with neck and back pain know how debilitating it can be. While a chiropractor is not a medical doctor, he or she is well educated and trained in the musculoskeletal system. Patients relish a treatment plan that avoids surgery and prescription drugs. They dislike the side effects of both approaches, and for good reason. They think of a chiropractor as practicing alternative or holistic medicine, akin to yoga, massage therapy, and acupuncture, all viable fields.

What is unique about this specialty is the use of the hands to manipulate the spine and the surrounding area to make "adjustments" that promote pain relief. The spine is the locus of most problems of the muscles and is thus the foundation of the chiropractic philosophy. All chiropractors treat all patients. In other words, there are no subdivisions as there are in traditional medicine in which you have pulmonologists, cardiologists, dermatologists, etc.

Chronic pain is difficult to treat unless you are not averse to strong medication. But with one or two chiropractic sessions, it is be permanently relieved. Thus, there is no surgery or upset stomach from powerful drugs taken too often. The field is lauded for its alternative solutions.

They look forward to their sessions knowing the relief that will ensue, and it lasts. The spine is the focal point of so much pain and is thus a most pertinent target of treatment. Thus, a neck problem will entail examination of the mid and lower back.

It is no wonder that posture, alignment, and manner of walking are part of one's medical history. They can cause numerous neck and back ailments that are musculoskeletal in nature. One's lifestyle including nutrition is most relevant. Often it is about stress and how it is absorbed in certain areas of the body.

A good chiropractor is a diagnostician as well. With or without X-rays, he or she can localize the problem and prescribe a treatment plan. Thus, posture and alignment are part of one's medical history. It makes perfect sense. Just looking at someone, you can see where problems lie. We are all individuals and any practitioners will customize a program for the patient's needs.

What You Need To Know About Prostate Cancer Treatment Options
