Step-Solutions To Protect Your Memory Longer

Forgetting some things can happen at times for all of us. They say it's normal to be forgetful once in a while particularly if you 've got a lot happening on your brain.
But while you are still much away from being in your senior moments, did you know that memory loss can affect people as early as in their 20's? And if it doesn't stay corrected as early as it starts, it may continue as you age becoming it worst.

Thankfully, taking some few easy and helpful steps to help ward off that brain fog can ultimately help your memory improve.

1. Don't skip carbs especially at breakfast. Your brain cells need carbs so they can stay at their peak form. Try whole grains and other complex carbohydrates because they are digested more slowly, and so they can deliver a steadier stream of glucose. An ideal breakfast would be a slice of toast or a whole-wheat muffin with a scrambled egg and cup of berries to jump start your day.

2. Exercise can also help you increase your blood flow to your brain getting in much needed oxygen and glucose for fuel.

3. A certain research says that if you are using a one type of font on your memo such as a Times New Roman for instance, it's time to try a different one, like those that are slightly difficult to decipher font. It helps you improve your long term retention. Focusing on a new font can also make your brain processing center work a little harder upping your recall. A good example to use would be a Comic Sans ;).

4. Do you always forget where you parked your car everytime you are in a mall or in a grocery store? This exercise might help and try it; - get out of your car and try to notice where you parked, then try moving your eyes side-to-side every half second for 30 seconds while standing in your place. As you practice this simple eye movement, it helps you increase your long-term memory by up to 10% according to some researchers at Manchester Metropolitan University in England.

5. A new study also found out that drinking in moderation may actually lower your risk for memory problems. Researchers believe that alcohol's anti-inflammatory properties maybe the cause.

Preparing For The Allergy Season!

 Spring is fast approaching. And pollen can be out there anytime soon. Here are some tips that might help to soothe any irritations on your skin. I do get some allergies a lot. :(

If you have itchiness and redness;
Try using a daily serum with linoleic acid. It might help to search this product online to know where you could buy them. This product strengthens your skin's top layer keeping allergens from penetrating your skin.
Include the habit of washing your face as soon as you get home so allergens won't sit on your skin.

If you have red nose;
Sneezing and stuffiness is caused by inflamed nasal passages so frequent nose wiping irritates your skin.
The redness you're having is also probably due to dryness. If you blow your nose, do it gently and use soft, high-quality tissues. A good recommendation is to use an anti-redness moisturizer that contains niacinamide to help boost hydration and reduce inflammation.

If you have dark circles on your eyes;
Eyes can be itchy due to allergies making you rub them more often. Frequent rubbing can darken skin over time. Under eye puffiness is also caused by fluid retention.
Ask your doctor about eyedrops that may help alleviate the symptoms so you would less likely to rub. Try avoiding a lot of salt intake, drink a lot of water and sleep on your back more often to prevent eye bags. Use an eye cream with chamomille which is a natural anti-inflammatory.
