Did you realize your can actually Boost Your Memory Power by paying more attention to what you eat? It’s true. All of those studies you see that talk about how blueberries are better for you than a Big Mac® are right. Nature provides you with most of what you need to stay healthy.
The single biggest problem with Memory, though, isn’t what you eat. While diet and exercise are both rank high on the list, stress and overload are actually bigger offenders than food intake.
Medications, health problems like thyroid or dementia, trauma and other such issues obviously are in a class all their own. But we are talking about non-medical-related reasons for memory problems.
Side-effects and interactions from medications can definitely cause problems with memory. But those are medical, and you should tell your doctor as soon as you notice you are having memory issues that weren’t present before you started taking the medications.
Your doctor can check to see if there are interactions with foods you are eating, other medications or if the medication is just not right for you.
Developing memory problems is distressing enough without making it worse because of medication. In fact, it will be almost impossible to Boost Your Memory Power through any of the techniques or strategies I teach if medications are blocking your path to a better, more improved memory.
There are a number of strategies you can use to Boost Your Memory Power and this is the first in a series of information I will be posting to help you with improving memory. So be sure to look for those.
Sudden memory loss is a great cause for concern, and should be reported to your doctor immediately. But quite often, a change in memory patterns, or the ability to retain or retrieve information comes on more gradually and is unnoticed until it has reached a startling level.
There are ways you can stop that from happening, and my series on Boost Your Memory Power will help you do just that.
While it can be fun and very rewarding, being in business can sometimes also be daunting. Just like any other project we undertake, sometimes we run out of ideas and wonder what we are going to do next.
Our fountain of originality has dried up, and we are pretty sure that no one has ever been through a dry spell like this before. Unfortunately, inspiration doesn’t come in a can – and there is no pill for empowerment.
Empowerment Inspiration is a vital ingredient of Success – they are intertwined and can draw strength from one another.
Here are some quotes that may give you inspiration:
* Those who wish to sing, always find a song – Swedish Proverb
* Thoughts lead on to purposes; purposes go forth in action; actions form habits; habits decide character; and character fixes our destiny – Tyrone Edwards
* To be prepared is half the victory” – Miguel Cerevantes
* Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them – Albert Einstein
Rather than focusing on what you can’t get done; trying focusing on your positive attributes. Write down your answers to these questions:
What makes you unique?
In how many ways are you unique?
How can you show those ways?
Do you give more than necessary? If so, in what ways. If not, why not?
Can you describe what you do in 25 words or less?
Do I have a convincing (less than 2 minutes) “elevator speech”? Do people believe what you tell them?
What do you guarantee? Is that guarantee convincing to prospective clients?
Do people know, like and trust you?
Do you focus on the needs of your clients and/or customers? How do you do that?
By using this list, you can get a clearer picture of what you can do to work on how the business world sees you. This type of activity will usually spawn new ideas – possibly in areas you never even considered before.
Most of all, it will help you to have a clearer picture of why you are so successful. By having it written down on a paper, you can see where your strengths are, and you will know what to build on. But if you don’t have definite answers to each of the questions above, working to more clearly define those will serve to show you where you need to work on improvement.
