Biggest Challenge: Memory
Response from DM:
As I have lectured around the country, one of the major concerns articulated by many people has been memory. Questions always come up such as: How do we save what memory we have? How do we enhance our memory?
Studies have shown that memory and cognitive ability can continue to be enhanced. We can learn, grow, and be challenged. We can expand our understanding, explore our creativity and go beyond our often self-imposed limitations. Exposing ourselves (and our memory) to new experiences will help us grow, discover, stimulate and enhance what we have.
Change does not happen in a vacuum. We need to seek out those things or ideas that stimulate our thinking, whether they are word games, travel, meeting new people, learning new skills, or trying new hobbies. It is our job to find ways to enhance our lives and our memories. If we are dealing with, or are concerned about, another person’s memory, no matter what their age may be, it is never too late to bring change and challenge to their environment, bodies, and minds. The time to start stimulating one’s environment and one’s mind is right now. We know ourselves best. Explore new horizons and try to have fun in the process.
