Can We Improve Our Memories?

I’ve always had a bad memory.  When meeting groups of new people, I have to make a concentrated effort to use and repeat their names over and over in my head to get them to “stick.”  It takes me several times of traveling the same route to know how to get somewhere.  I’m sure some of my health issues and treatments over the years have greatly added to my level of brain fog, but I wonder if that can be improved?  After all, certain animals are said to have great memories.  And aren’t humans just a step above most other animals? Surely, there MUST be something we can do to aid our imperfect memories and memory lapses.  Now, if I can just remember where I put my keys, I can get my notebook out of the desk drawer and get to work on creating an experiment to help us remember things.

    I can sooo relate to brain fog. It’s even worse when under the weather. The brain fog can even interfere with crochet and crafting time…….zzzzzzzzzzzzzz…. whoops looks like I just had a little nap to clear the brain fog. Keep forgetting to update my blog. Now what was the password again?
