Dr. Oz's tips for memoryPosted on Nov 2nd 2007 10:26AM by Martha Edwards
Everyone's favourite celeb doctor, Dr. Oz, has some great advice on how to healthify your life, and now he's offering advice on how to improve your mind too. Here are some tips:
- Teach people. You're far more likely to retain information if you have to teach it to someone else.
- But don't just teach -- learn. You should never stop learning. Why? People who are willing to learn throughout their lives have better memories. In short, use your brain or lose it. So take a class, pick up an informative book, watch a documentary or take up a new hobby!
- Think about thinking. Instead of doing everything on auto-pilot, think about what you're doing, and notice what's going on around you.
- Take care of your body. You brain can only be as healthy as the body that sustains it. Eat well. Exercise. Get lots of sleep. It will all pay off.
