Memory matters

 

 

 

How often have we all gone to an adjoining room or upstairs to the bedroom intending to fetch an item and having reached there completely forgotten what we went there for?

Sometimes we can do this more than once. But we can all suffer from some form of memory loss for many different reasons, sometimes because we are so preoccupied with so many other matters with our minds already overloaded with things to remember and to do.

Both mental and physical exercises can stem the onset of Alzheimers disease and dementia because they stimulate parts of the brain dealing with memory. Mental exercises have been known to reactivate some parts of the brain that may have become dormant by supporting the growth of new brain cells as well as promoting communication between various nerve cells involved with memory.
