How do you stay strong in old age?
DescriptionPaying attention to whatever it is you want to remember. For example, if you are busy thinking about something else, you may not notice where you put the house keys. using memory triggers such as association or visualisation techniques. For example, link a name you want to remember with a mental picture. practising using your memory. For example, try to remember short lists, such as a grocery list. Use memory triggers to help you ‘jump’ from one item to the next. One type of memory trigger is a walking route that you know well. Mentally attach each item on your list to a landmark along the way. For example, imagine putting the bread at the letterbox, the apples at the next-door neighbour’s house and the vegetables at the bus stop. To remember the list, you just have to ‘walk’ the route in your mind.
