Are you forgetting more and more things?

Memory problems?

Memory weakens with age, no way around it.
But you can delay the inevitable, you can find ways to slow the decline.

The posts in this new Memory series can help you in this battle to slow the process and retain as much of your memory as possible for as long as possible.

These posts will:
Help you improve your organization;
Give you strategies to help retain and use your memory;
Suggest memory support with reminder assistants.

However, it may benefit you more if you use only 3 or 4 of the strategies, testing them out for results. You may forget more than you remember if you use too many strategies all at once. Remember too that these strategies are to help your memory, not replace it.
