Improving Memory: Post 2
by Judy Mauer, BSW
Your discovery journey back to your best memory begins and continues! I love serving you with little appetizers of information on your way.
Have you ever felt like you were loosing your ability to remember? I suggest you don’t worry too much prematurely. My research and experience has shown there are many factors that can deplete memory that we can do something about.
As you explore and determine the whys’ for you, there are many things that can be done to improve memory. Exploring can be confusing. Get ready to hear yourself say, it may be this, it may be that and oh, I don’t know . . . IGNORE, IGNORE, IGNORE the mental noise.
Don’t let it get to you. Keep your focus . . .
improvements are on the way.
There are four areas of cause for most of us. If you begin to make small changes in these areas improvements will build. It takes time. So, wisely call upon patience to partner with you during this journey.
Get started, remember being overly stressed and major life events such as, divorce, adding a new family member, new job, loss of a loved one all deplete energy and focus on self-care (here is a quick life event StressTestWeb . Improve your self-care one little thing at a time. Do a little research and start little tiny improvements in one of these areas:
- poor diet
- lack of exercise
- depleted social interaction
- poor rest
Resist your urge to avoid change. This urge is primal and we all have it. Those who overcome and thrive, get good at catching themselves in avoidance states. I have a course coming out soon about creating habits where we delve into avoidance states and growing great habits.
You can reduce avoidance by bringing your focus to reengaging self-care habits that you have, but have been neglected. You can do this while you are researching the ‘whys’. Start with a focus on one of these areas and pick one effort you are sure you can accomplish. Every success builds synergy to continue.
