Forget me not!

According to Prevention magazine, the average American in the course of their lifetime, will spend one full year looking for misplaced objects. Forgetfulness is not always a disease, like Alzheimer's. Memory can be trained just like the muscles in your body. Tell yourself out loud what it is that you want to remember. Talking to yourself helps to retain the facts. Take a mental picture. Pretend yur mind is a camera and snap a few shots. If you have to remember numbers, chunk them together into groups of three. Reading is another very important activity for keeping the mind sharp. There are around 200,000 words in English alone. The average person only uses less than 5000 a day. Reading good books expands the vocabulary and may help you to remember words. As far as vitamins go, the B vitamins, potassium, zinc and lecithin are all important brain vitamins associated with memory.
