How to Maximize Your Moments

Guest Author - Debbie Mandel

When you experience memory lapses, donít reach for ginko biloba or vitamin E. Latest studies show that these supplements are hype. And donít feel embarrassed or stressed when you canít recall information or have difficulty learning how to operate new technology. Here are some tips to coexist with cognitive impairment. Donít fight it because anger wastes a lot of precious energy and inhibits concentration; instead, make peace with it and expend your energy in finding new helpful ways to flow.
  • Exercise, preferably weight lifting, will oxygenate your brain and stabilize glucose levels. Weight lifting helps to increase your focus and release endorphins to help you feel happier and in control.
  • Eat a healthy balanced diet. Include fish, brain food, and plenty of colorful fruits and vegetables. Manage your cholesterol levels Ė be heart smart and brain.
  • Make lists and post memos to remind yourself of what you have to do. Become the CEO of your life.
  • Be consistent with your belongings, so that you know where your keys, pocket book, or reading glasses are. Why waste time playing hide and seek every day?
  • Donít multi-task. Focus your attention on one task at a time.
  • Cut down on alcohol.
  • Socialize, call and interact with other people to stay connected.
  • Keep learning even one new word a day.
