So you tied a string on your finger to help you remember something important, right? But when you looked at the string, did you forget what you were trying to remember?
It is common to joke about common memory “speed bumps” as we grow older. But did you realize that humans begin to lose memory capacity by age 18, and the ability to memorize becomes more difficult as early as age 30? WOW! By mid-life, most people notice an increase in the occurrence of memory glitches, and typically they being to fret and worry. Although a certain degree of forgetfulness is normal, new research has uncovered steps we can take (at any age) to strengthen our memory and protect our brains from dementia. How is your memory holding up? Could you use some octane for the brain about now?
Since we are now living longer than previous generations did, most people turning fifty today can expect to live another thirty-plus years. For many, that is more time than they spent working. To help us preserve memories, it’s important to sharpen the brain up NOW!
In this workshop, you will learn how to fight against the memory bandits that hold up your thoughts and words. When you attend, you will learn the complexities of memory creation, storage, and retrieval. You’ll learn, for example, why you never forget how to shift a car’s gears, but you can’t remember where you left your car’s keys!
