4) Prioritize your Brain: Channelizing and prioritizing the usage of brain is key for everyone. Ageing can make it worse if we fail to prioritize. Japanese Seiton Principle helps in taking care of daily issues such as locating your glasses, keys etc. by having a “A place for everything and everything in its place” -such as spectacles, house keys, handkerchief, walking stick, yoga mat. So, your brain can now be used to memorize some new things or learn to do so.
5) Repeat and Reinforce: With these smartphones, apps, google talk, we have no need to memorize our friend’s number or write a message to him/her. Ageing adds to it. But if you wish to remember a recently heard name or want to reinforce the name-face connection, repeat what you’ve heard.
E.g.” We met Anand Chopra at Delhi, right?”
6) Space it Out: Repetition is most powerful as learning tool when its properly timed. Ensure, you repeat the needful information you wish to read and remember but after spaced periods. Intermittent repetitions or spaced out periods for reading or learning can give great results and help keep your mind sharper.
