Fo­cus on the task at hand

If talk­ing to some­one, make sure you ask them ques­tions, or if read­ing a book or a re­port, ask yourself how you would sum­marise the in­for­ma­tion to a friend.

Don’t try to mul­ti­task

Do­ing sev­eral things at once will in­crease the num­ber of mis­takes made due to hav­ing to di­vide your con­cen­tra­tion on sev­eral things.

Get or­gan­ised

You’re more likely to for­get things if your home or desk is clut­tered. Take a few min­utes each day to tidy your sur­round­ings.

So­cialise reg­u­larly

So­cial­is­ing helps ward o de­pres­sion and stress, both of which can lead to poor mem­ory loss. Look for op­por­tu­ni­ties to get to­gether with friends and loved ones, es­pe­cially if you live alone.

Make lists

When mak­ing a list, re­peat each en­try out loud – you will nd it com­mits to mem­ory much eas­ier.

Ex­er­cise
