Our memory is something we never want to lose. It is possible to prevent memory loss with a few simple steps. By being educated about memory loss and ways to prevent it, you will SAVE YOURSELF AGONY later in life. You can never start too early with memory loss prevention. The rest of my blog will give you plenty of tips on how to prevent memory loss.



If this is true for you, the best way to remedy the situation is to take a short break once every hour or so. This lets your mind unwind a bit. You can just let your brain absorb more information this way.

There is a ton of information you should learn and keep in mind, and it will help you study at a lot of different places. The reason for this is to dissociate the information with a specific location, and make it a more basic part of you. When you study the information in a variety of places, it is more likely to be stored in your long-term memory.


Just as you need to keep your muscles fit through exercise, so do you have to keep your mind sharp through constant use. You can improve brain function and potentially stop your brain from degenerating with age if you challenge your brain with puzzles.
Include fish oil in your diet every day, through supplements if necessary. If you struggle with remembering things, try consuming more Omega-3 fatty acids. Try adding it to your diet in the form of a pill.


When you visualize things you can actually help your brain recall things and you can boost your memories’ capabilities. If you are trying to memorize information such as lists or charts, visual clues can greatly enhance your memorization and recall abilities. Memorizing can also become easier by drawing your own graphs and other memory aids.


Spend a moment to establish a relation between the information you are attempting to put to memory to some already established knowledge. Creating links between old and new information will increase the potential for keeping both in your permanent memory banks. These relational exercises should help you develop a better memorization process.


Drink ginseng tea to help improve your memory. The ingredients are thought to improve brain functioning, and that includes the ability to retain memories. It’ll also help your overall health as well as your brain. Memory loss can also be aided by drinking lots of green tea.


Memory loss is a vary tragic condition of an aging mind. Prescription medication works in certain cases, it’s especially helpful if memory loss is associated with severe problems like dementia.


Do not try to cram when you study. A better way to remember things is to use study sessions, as opposed to cramming. It is stressful and ineffective to try and learn a new subject, all in one sitting. Your mind won’t be able to absorb it all, and very little of it will be retained. Make sure you study regularly so that your brain is stimulated into remembering.


Even after you are out of school, you should continue to exercise your brain by learning new things. When you stop acquiring new knowledge, you stop utilizing the part of your brain that aids in memory. Always learning will ensure that your brain becomes trained when it’s time to recall the information.


A trick to improve memory is to speak something out loud when it is important to remember it. Whenever you learn something such as a name, you should say it out loud. If you hear what you are trying to remember, you will have a better chance of remembering it later on. If no one else is around or you really need to remember the information, repeat it multiple times.


Making sure you get enough sleep each night is important. If you want to strengthen your memory, you need to get adequate sleep. If your concentration is impaired, it may become difficult to store events in your long-term memory.


Associate things you want to learn with things you already know in order to facilitate memory. If you connect your short-term memory with knowledge you already have, you will be able to remember things better, and help convert that short-term memory to long-term memory.

To better your mental performance and to remember information that you need, eat brain food. Healthy fats are essential for the health of your brain. Add more fish, walnuts, olives, and flax seeds to your diet instead of trans fats.

In conclusion, there are ways to prevent and treat memory loss. If you use the tips and ideas from this guide, you can improve your memory now and help to preserve it as you get older. Take the opportunity whenever possible to strengthen your memory and brain. Remember that every small step counts in your battle against memory loss.

My accident happened on February 5th, 2012 after my bartending shift at the Blue Martini in Orlando, FL late one night. I was driving on my way to a friend’s house in Tampa, FL who I was temporarily staying with at the time. I was told that my car veered off the interstate and flipped five times, my body was found 50 feet from it. I’ve tried very hard to discover how my body made it that distance from the car, and who found me, but I still don’t know. The accident report didn’t say much. I received a phone call from a sergeant eventually who told me I was airlifted to Orlando Regional Medical Center unconscious when my trach and feeding tube were implanted, but they didn’t expect me to make it. I was in a coma for five to six weeks after my car accident. I woke up with a traumatic brain injury, liver laceration, lung confusion, subluxation to my neck, amnesia, epilepsy, a fractured lumbar spine, and a fractured pelvis with pins implanted. The pins were removed a few months later. Talk about a painful surgery. Healing is an ongoing process, but for me there are some specific things that have helped along the way: Keeping track of everything to care for my daily hygiene. Listing these things with a dry erase marker on my bathroom mirror used to help. Recognizing what I’m not supposed to say. Deciding what TO SAY, what NOT TO SAY, and WHEN to say WHAT. Isn’t easy to do and I still haven’t mastered it. There are things I’m supposed to talk only to certain people about, and some things I should keep to myself. When I’m being upfront and honest with someone, I can’t assume whatever I’m saying or doing is right, just because in my head, being truthful is “the way I’m supposed to be”. Believe it or not, oddly enough, that isn’t always the case! Learning how to RECOGNIZE which is which is vital. Don’t believe what everyone says. Do your own research. Discover your own truth. Know who I can talk to with the confidence that I'll be given honest feedback from them. What prescriptions must I take daily, how many times a day, how many pills in each dosage, and how to stay on a schedule with my doctors so I don’t run out of my medications. How to keep myself on track. I try and find simple ways to include all things I need to do, my appointments, yoga classes, homework, social life, fitness, etc. Figuring out the most effective ways that can progressively help manage my pain. A therapist is a must have. Someone I can tell everything to and have it kept confidential. I must constantly fight hard to make each of my days better. That’s the way it is. Accept it, don’t give up, and keep going. YouTube and the Word synonym tool are necessities I can’t live without. Keep the alcohol to a MINIMUM. If any, but not drinking AT ALL is the best-case scenario-by a long shot. I’ve been working on how to stop talking out loud as much while being overwhelmingly passionate about things. For me, moving forward is about resilience. Why? I’ve learned that being resilient to words people say about, to, and against me have subconsciously built up an ulterior strength within me. This strength is like a shield that gives me the power to just keep going. To be resilient means to keep moving forward despite having the odds stacked against me. Just to keep it moving and continue giving my all every single day, gripping onto the hope it’ll all make perfect sense at some point. How the next day and the day after that aren’t going to feel the same. Resilience has aided me in finding somewhere I can fit in, and enjoy what I’m doing. Also, being resilient in my situation has created the ability for me to have a positive impact on others. I'm not depressed anymore. I’m quite happy with myself at this point. Now don’t get me wrong, I still have a long list of goals I’m going to achieve, or die trying. Haha, that’s the fight in me talking out loud. Resilience has abetted me in accepting the new Christy you could say. Vinyasa yoga has helped improve my pain and flexibility a lot. I’m sure my sanity too. I haven’t tried much meditation yet, but I plan to, although I tried a breathing exercise on Kevin’s Instagram last night and loved it! I want to get good at it. I don’t know why, but when I start feeling fatigued or when I just want to write my mind on paper, sitting by the ocean really helps calm me. I think I’m a bit hyperactive, but I’ve noticed when I wake up and go straight to the gym, get on the treadmill at 3.4 speed and just go for an hour. It really helps motivate me about my day and somehow makes it easier for me to fall asleep when I hop into bed. I also take part in Vinyasa yoga, instructed by Di, only 2 times a week hosted at Suncoast Fitness in St. Petersburg, FL. It has helped build my strength, improve my flexibility, and ease my thoughts to a noticeable degree. As I move forward in this journey and look to the future, I’m planning on one day starting a YouTube channel and raising money to develop an app for TBI survivors. Like a life coach in a sense, and hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to teach survivors how to use it, or make it very simple and self-explanatory. It would also be nice to make hospitals aware of the app one day so they'll be able to reference it and help others who have been affected by brain injury.
