Memory Boosting Tips

"What's the best way to keep your mind engaged? Robert Goldman, MD,
author of Brain Fitness, thinks that tackling unfamiliar tasks or new
ways of thinking can help develop underused brain connections. Among
his suggestions:

Take up word games like crossword puzzles and acrostics. Memorize
favorite poems or famous passages like the Gettysburg Address. Read
challenging books or articles that encourage you to expand your
interests. Practice other-handedness. If you're right-handed, try
brushing your teeth or writing your grocery list with your left hand."
