Memory Loss


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, June 14, 2013

When you put multiple generations into the same house, so many funny things happen! We had the best examples of that this week!

Grandmother: "Oh dear! I forgot to bring those old pictures with me. I so wanted us to take a trip down Memory Lane!"

Grandson: "Instead, it looks like we're on the Road to Senility!"

We all laughed soooooo hard!

But seriously, we can limit the progress of memory loss, at least according to Harvard Medical School.
emoticon Exercise
emoticon Keep learning
emoticon No smoking
emoticon Maintain a healthy diet
emoticon Get a good night's sleep
emoticon Consider taking vitamins
emoticon Cultivate social support

Want more information about the details for these? Check out this Harvard Health Publication. It's good reading!

Here's wishing you a wonderful trip down Memory Lane and an avoidance of the Road to Senility!

  That must explain why I'm still working - LOL - to keep using my brain so I don't lose it! Seriously, thou, thanks - I enjoyed reading this so much. I miss having multi generations around - now I am in the oldest generation, and at 64 I'm not sure that's the role I wanted!

    I have to remember for the two of us. DH is 82 and constantly bringing up names he can't recall and expects me to remember. I usually do, but it may take a few days. emoticon

    always good to share memories - when they're not shared (including laughter for most reasons) they'll be gone. glad there's laughter, and sharing and healthy living in your household.

    Good info. I am 56 and very forgetful. MY granddaughter will say mamaw remember when, we and sometimes I have to say no I don't. We just laugh.But real memory loss isn't funny. It is sad. I had an uncle that had Alzheimers , it is a bad thing

    Alzheimers and dementia run in my family; I am a senior now and worry about my husband and myself. I wish they would speed up the diagnostic tests and of course "cures". It was very traumatic for us to have loved ones suffering from these for many, many years. The tips from Harvard, whether they work or not, are good sense to follow anyway! Thanks for this blog!

    It would be great to think that if we take care of ourselves we would not suffer from Alzheimer's disease. My mother was healthy and died from Alzhiemer's at age 65. Much more research is needed as our population ages.

    And those are the main things recommended for health as we age in all ways...and for younger people, too. Too bad they often don't listen to our advice. Too bad we didn't start as soon as we knew this stuff!
