7 Easy Ways To Boost Your Memory

Do you forget things every day?  Does this ever happen to you… the day is half over, and you can’t get over the feeling that you’ve forgotten something important? Nothing is on the calendar, so you decide that your mind is playing tricks on you! 

But the feeling is still there, now you’re stuck, and you can’t remember what it was. UGH then to find out you were supposed to go to the store to get dinner items. 

There’s nothing more frustrating than forgetting. The fact is, we get so busy that it’s tough to keep track of everything you need to get through a day. 

Or is it?

Thankfully there are natural things we can do to improve our memory. And we don’t have to wait to get started. Below you’ll find several suggestions to help you boost your memory right now!


If you have brain fog- meditation improves your focus. Take this time to process and recharge. Morning meditation gives you the boost you need to get your day started on a positive note. 

Try 5 minutes in the morning, afternoon, and before bed.  I use the app Calm (received a year free from Kaiser) to walk me through the mediation.  You can search mindfulness meditation or focus and see what pops up. 

Then make sure you are comfy and away from distractions. Concreting on the breathing is the main component of mediation so go somewhere QUIET.  I lock myself in my room- family knows what time I meditate, but It’s best to close your eyes and focus on your breathing during mediation. 


Eat better

Some things we eat are called brain foods. Anything with antioxidants will improve brain function, which in turn makes for a better memory! 

My favorite foods are some of the top foods to eat to help with memory- green-leafy vegetables, fatty fish, berries, tea, and coffee if you want to know more- More foods that help with memory. 

Get up and move

Yes, of course, most of us have heard the phrase- Exercise makes the mind sharp.  It does!  Exercise increases blood flow. Better blood flow carries more of what your brain needs to function (such as oxygen and nutrients). So movement = better memory! 

Go for a walk or a bike ride at least three times a week.  Get the kids involved too. They might need to work on their memory also! 

Try a brain teaser

My grandpa swore by this; every day, he would do a crossword puzzle and tell us that is how he says so sharp!  He did work up until he was 85 as an accountant. Regularly challenging your brain is good for it! By doing things such as crossword puzzles or Sudoku, you start building better networks for the neural pathways. The dollar store always has fun puzzle books to get- for adults and kids. 

There are tons of apps out there filled with all kinds of mental challenges designed to enhance your memory. So, why not play a game that gives a real positive boost to your brainpower? 

 Take a break

As much as our bodies need rest, so does our mind. If you’re finding that you’re losing focus while working, it’s probably time to take a short break. That gives your brain a chance to process and re-energize. When I get back from a vacation, I want to do more things that I have been putting off because I have the energy.  

Learn something new 

Oh my goodness, there are so many CLASSES ONLINE that are FREE!  I even try to watch a Youtube video on something I want to learn daily. By learning new things, you train your brain to process information better, and so you will start remembering more. Picking up a new skill will result in you helping your memory as well! 


It’s a fact of life that a tired brain isn’t going to be working at its very best. Isn’t that the truth?  I can’t function on very little sleep.  I make sure I get 8 hours every night.  Getting enough sleep is probably the simplest thing you can do to improve your memory. By getting 7 – 9 hours of sleep every night, you’ll find your memory will improve dramatically. Sometimes I have a hard time sleeping, so I put lavender oil on my pillow.  That helps so much. 

I hope these tips will help you on the road to better memory.  Also, write everything down you think you might forget; I even keep a memory journal that I put in weekly highlights.  My grandkids are going to know all the stuff their parents did as kids.
