Health Tip: Improving Your Memory

-- Memory loss is common, but should not be taken lightly, says Mayo Clinic. If you have difficulty remembering things, Mayo Clinic offers a few simple ways to sharpen your memory:

  • Stay physically and mentally active.
  • Socialize often.
  • Stay organized.
  • Sleep well.
  • Eat healthy.
  • Manage chronic conditions.

If memory loss affects your ability to complete your daily activities, or if you notice it getting worse, talk with your doctor.
