eWellness: How to keep your memory sharp?


Dr KK Aggarwal    17 October 2017

Manage your stress, especially deadline pressure and petty arguments. The biggest stress is an ongoing sense of extreme anxiety. This can be managed by deep breathing, meditation, yoga and by mindful approach to living. Get a goodnights sleep. The most common reason for poor sleep is difficulty in falling asleep and staying asleep. Many drugs used to treat insomnia can also impair memory. If you need a sleeping medicine, it should be used in the lowest dose and for the shortest period of time. Get up at the same time in the morning. If you smoke, quit. If you do not drink, do not start. Alcohol makes it difficult to perform short term memory tasks such as memorizing list. It also induces vitamin B1 deficiency, which can cause dementia. Protect your brain from injury as repeated minor head trauma can cause brain damage. Wear seat belt when riding in motor vehicle. Wear helmet while driving or riding motorcycle.
