A strong memory is one of the most important factors that facilitate our work and social life. It may be enough to pay attention to a few important points to strengthen the memory, which may weaken due to reasons such as age, stress, incorrect eating habits. Specialists of the Neurology Department of Memorial Hizmet Hospital gave information about memory development techniques.
Brain and body health is important
Scientific studies conducted in recent years show that it is possible to improve memory, but this does not depend on a single method. In order for a person to fully use the capacity that memory has, first of all, the brain and body must be healthy. In other words, there should be no structural problems in the brain, and there should also be no chronic diseases that will indirectly affect memory.
It is possible to have a healthy memory at any age with the right methods
It is known that memory loss that occurs in some patients is caused by deficiencies in vitamins B1, B12 and folic acid. Memory, which can be defined as keeping memories in the mind and "recalling" when necessary, whether in pieces or as a whole, is not a phenomenon that gradually disappears due to age, as it is thought. Research shows that using the right methods, the right connections of the brain can be activated at any age.
Consume fish, strawberries and blueberries
Consumption of fish at least 2 times a week, vegetables such as spinach, asparagus and broccoli rich in vitamin K are known to strengthen memory by increasing brain power. Foods such as blueberries and strawberries, which are rich in antioxidants, help protect the brain by removing substances known as "free radicals" that cause cell damage from the body.
Regular sleep and stress control make learning easier
Regular sleep facilitates learning and strengthens memory. Excessive stress causes concentration disorder and weakens memory. Depression and anxiety should be treated by a doctor. Therefore, an orderly and peaceful life is important.
