Where Are You on the Memory Bell Curve? Just yesterday, I went through psych neurological testing for DVRS. This was the update that they needed for me to continue the program with them. That was eight hours’ worth of testing for sensory motor skills and analytical processing. Sensory motor involves short term memory.
There are invalidities in this testing, because mostly everyone has some sort of short term memory loss. Being that this has to do with job placement for me at DVRS, and they have to see where the challenges lie with slight cerebral palsy and the stroke that I had in 1992, I let this go to get the move on into a decent part-time position.
With all of this said, this doesn’t mean that I am going to develop Dementia or Alzheimer’s disease in my later years. I do for myself by taking care of my body and mind, eating clean, exercising, and writing. That is better than half the battle to keep these deadly diseases at bay. In this blog, I’m giving you the tools that you can use to improve your short term memory. The first tool is the bell curved memory graph, in the pic above. Go there and plot where you think your short term memory lies. Then write the reason with the day and the date. Decide for yourself, why you plotted it there. Go back a week later. See if you plot yourself either higher or lower. Date and state your reason. Be honest and analyzed it for yourself. Be proud of any improvements that you made. For me, my short memory lies just below the middle of the bell curve.
Utilize your other tools. Exercise more than three times a week. Even with limited mobility, you can move and exercise. If you are on too many medications, find out from your medical team if there are ones that you can cut back on they are grass fed or organic. Avoid eating processed foods. Eat fresh and as close to organic as possible. Eat your breakfast. Use deodorants and sunscreens that don’t have aluminum or titanium in them. They are known to cause cancer or Alzheimer’s. Get your rest and write. Brain exercises are just as important. While writing, you are moving your upper body a lot, while using your brain.
With these tools, you could possibly beat any onset of Alzheimer’s or certain forms of cancer because you are giving mind and body the better half of what it needs to heal to become whole. Then you can take on far more writing assignments for pay, as well. Please vote and comment. I invite you to share this blog also.
