We all have our moments of disorganization and poor memory, but we don’t want it to turn into a lifelong problem. We compiled a list of 5 ways to improve your memory and 5 ways to improve the memories of your kids. Ears are sold separately unfortunately, but hopefully you’re able to implement these tips into your family and see some positive results!

5 Ways To Improve Your Memory:

   1. Eat A Healthy & Balanced Diet. We all know that food fuels our bodies, so it makes sense that what we eat can also have an impact on our cognition and memory. In a 2017 medical study, it was found that an increase in  the “consumption of fruit and vegetables [was] associated with a reduced risk of cognitive impairment”. Meaning, your memory improves when you eat more fruits and veggies! These Solely Whole Fruit GummiesMango Fruit Jerky are some of our family’s favorite no sugar snacks (made 100% from fruits). Also take a look at some of our favorite Air Fryer Summer Recipes.

 

   2. Exercise Daily. The Mayo Clinic recommends 30 minutes of exercise each day, which as it turns out is a proven method to improve cognition. Exercise increases blood flow to all parts of your body, including to your brain. If you’re needing ideas for exercises at home, some of our favorite at-home exercise equipments are Resistance Band Set, Core Sliders and Dumbbell Set. If you’re feeling really motivated to get in that exercise, the Bowflex Home Gym is great all around.

 

   3. Increase Daily Brain Activity. As important as it is to keep your body active, it is also very important to keep your brain active. Getting in some brain exercises each day is crucial to helping you improve your memory. Try things like Sudoku, Crossword Puzzles, Reading Books, volunteering, or learning something new. It’s equally as important to be exercising your brain as it is your body.

 

   4. Get A Good Night’s Sleep. Sleep has been proven to not only increase your long term memory, but help form new pathways and retain information as you sleep. Want to take sleeping up a notch? Upgrade items in your bed. Try this incredibly comfortable Memory Foam Pillow or this Weighted Blanket. However you sleep, remember to make it a priority.

 

   5. Socialize With Others. Bonus points if you get outside while doing it. Spending time with people that you like has been shown to decrease anxiety and depression (both of which can lead to a decrease in memory). Even if it is just a game night get together, a walk in the park, or a picnic. Getting out and being with others will help you retain that memory you’re seeking after.

 

5 Tips For Improving Kid’s Memories:

   1. Play A Game. For kids, let’s make it fun! Playing games is a good way to help them use and exercise their brain. Games like UNO Card Game, Crazy Eights, Go Fish, Memory Card Game, and War are great options to start with! Also, check out this Wooden Matching+.

 

   2. Let Your Child Be The Teacher. Ever noticed in school they have people split up in groups or pairs where they teach each other. That’s because this helps cement the information in their head, helping them store key components and recalling it to help others. Try this with your kids at home!

 

   3. Strengthen Visualization Skills. Help kids learn to visualize the things that they are learning. For example, if you ask your child to help vacuum, have them draw a picture of what that might look like. As they get better at it, they won’t need to draw it out. Add on to the visualization fun by playing this Memory Game or Ladybug Wooden Memory Game together as a family.

 

   4. Add Multisensory Aspects. Understood.org, recommends helping them connect the working memory with long-term memory by using multisensory instructions for them. Do things like walk through the house while explaining the chores, which uses sight, touch, and hearing.

 

  5. Help Your Kids Make Connections. Connections can help people remember things. To this day I still think, “Never Eat Soggy Waffles” when I am remembering North East South and West. Find fun and helpful mnemonic devices (ie ROY G BIV) to help your kids remember the information that they need.

 

The brain is such an important part of your body. Keeping it engaged and active is an important part of living a happy and fulfilled life! We hope these tips help you and your family!
