Socialize on a Regular Basis

Socializing with people who share same interests and likes wards off any kind of stress and depression. Both of these can contribute to memory loss. You should never miss chance to get together with friends and loved ones. Whenever you are invited to a party or dinner, don’t think too much about it and just go. In fact, when you meet different kinds of people, you engage in conversations that keep you active and sharp. You get into a completely different groove, especially if you live alone.

  1. A useful and timely post indeed.

    As I grow older, I can see the struggle I have with myself to remember names and schedules. But I sense this also has something to do with the passion or interest we hold in the various things we do. I can see that when I am passionate, I remember much better. If this be true, I suppose we need to see how we focus on doing things about which we are passionate and how we can generate passion ( and interest) in our day to day activities.
