Today’s topic at Lakeside was memory

Take aways from today's health lecture on memory at Lakeside Chautauqua. Kathryn Kilpatrick, http://memoryfitnessmatters.com. Developing strategies does not reduce your ability to remember; hectic schedules will interfere with your joy; the seduction of "busyness" is the adrenaline rush; set boundaries with people or events that create stress (which interferes with memory); slow down, pause; don't use hurtful self talk if you forget--may impact your health; sharpen your liste...ning skills--reduce environmental distractions; modern technology can put you on overload; repeat, repeat, repeat, visualize, verify; spend some time just thinking about very simple things; learning jokes are good for you--practice the punch line; don't use your prime time for texting and email; multitasking results in poor listening; scatters your attention, impacts sleep and affects relationships.
