A diverse range of opinions, thoughts and lifestyles takes our retentiveness to the next level.
- Sport is also good for the mind: studies have proven that a regular workout also has a knock-on effect on memory performance. Happily, though, you do not need to run a marathon to feel the benefits. Just a 30-minute walk is enough to rejuvenate both mind and body.
- Brain jogging on the move: a number of good brain jogging apps, such as Peak or Elevate, can now be downloaded to a smartphone or tablet. Their game-like features ensure that the good old memory gets a fun workout.
- Discover your own tricks: unless it’s a genuinely fun thing to do, you soon lose motivation to do memory training. So it’s worthwhile defining which challenges you personally find enjoyable. Rather than brain jogging, would you instead prefer to memorise the telephone numbers of your best friends, for example? If so, then why not?
