AGE AND MEMORY
A MANCUNIANS VIEW ON MEMORY RETENTION
As we grow older our memories seem to fail us more frequently than they should. I have enabled my memory recall to be strong and develop each day. How? Creating a memory wall in my hall way. I see it each time I leave my home and re-enter it. Basically, it’s a collection of photographs that mean something to me. Not of people, but of places I have visited and that brings a smile to my face. I remember until a couple of years ago having a fear of heights. Next thing my friend had me down in London and I was riding the London Eye fear conquered. What a treat that was way above the metropolis and seeing all that London had to offer from a pod that did not stop to allow you on or off. I bet just that simple memory will make some of you readers smile and conjure up your own bits and bobs.
A tranquil day cruising the one of the many canals in our region what a wonderful way to enjoy a nice warm summers day. A nice chilled drink and a tub of ice cream – watch out though a spoonful of sugar may help the medicine go down but it stays on your hips unless you do something about it.
Until recently last time I entered a gymnasium was at school 40 odd years ago. My oh my how I disliked that room especially climbing the rope I could barely hurl myself off the floor. The gymnasiums of today are much more user friendly and fun to use. Who’d have thought it riding a bike and watching tv at the same time! Next driverless cars (joke)!
Music too helps strengthen the memory. A nice catchy tune with a good story nothing beats it. So my recipe to beat the winter blues and have a strong memory:
Musing over a collection of photographs + Listening to good music + Exercise. You’d be surprised how yummy this recipe is once you get into the routine!
