Is Your Memory Slipping?

Have you noticed that your memory is beginning to slip? There way several ways to sharpen your memory, and it's important to do activities like these daily.

Have your spouse write a series of seven random words and read them to you slowly. A few hours later, ask them to check the list while you try to remember the words. Then, 12 hours later try to remember those same seven words. Try again 24 hours later.
Note: Your spouse will appreciate it if you use this same skill to remember grocery lists and anniversaries

For a greater challenge: list as many presidents, Supreme Court justices, states and capitals as you can. Read a newspaper article and try to recall as many facts as you can before referring back.

Make sure to challenge your memory daily, which in itself is a challenge and sharpens your mind and memory.
