Simple Things to Improve your Memory

While taking a short break from work, I decided to browse updates from Yahoo, and look what I've got from Shine from Yahoo.

Here are some things you can begin doing as soon as today to begin the great brain tune up:

Eat Almonds
Almond is believed to improve memory. If a combination of almond oil and milk is taken together before going to bed or after getting up at morning, it strengthens our memory power. Almond milk is prepared by crushing the almonds without the outer cover and adding water and sugar to it.

Drink Apple Juice
Research from the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UML) indicates that apple juice increases the production of the essential neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the brain, resulting in an increased memory power.

Sleep well
Research indicates that the long-term memory is consolidated during sleep by replaying the images of the experiences of the day. These repeated playbacks program the subconscious mind to store these images and other related information.

Enjoy simple Pleasures
Stress drains our brainpower. A stress-ridden mind consumes much of our memory resources to leave us with a feeble mind. Make a habit to engage yourself in few simple pleasures everyday to dissolve stress from your mind. Some of these simple pleasures are good for your mind, body and soul.

Enjoy music you love
Play with your children
Appreciate others
Run few miles a day, bike or swim
...and here's more...

Start a blog

Play scrabble or crossword puzzle
Interact with others
Start a new hobby such as blogging, reading, painting, bird watching
Learn new skill or a foreign language
Practice Yoga or Meditation

See... blogging really helps boost our memory....

Freshen Up

Two weeks ago, I forgot to pull out a clean bath towel for the little girl before leaving the house. So, my sister decided to use this pink bath robe for her. It was gift from my officemate during her first birthday.

Happy Father's Day!

Father's Day is a celebration which started in the early 20th century to complement Mother's Day in celebrating fatherhood and male parenting, and to honor and remember all fathers. The date of its celebration varies worldwide and usually involves gift-giving to fathers and family-oriented activities. This year it will be celebrated on June 15th in most countries, including the Philippines.
My husband's experience of a first-time dad started on the day that we confirmed that I am pregnant. He accompanied me on my very first pre-natal check-up, bought my natal supplements, and even my first maternity dress. He has also withdrawn his overseas job application just to be with me and waited until lovely Yasmin Althea is born. He is hardworking and a good provider. We really appreciate everything that you do for our family. We love you so much, Papa!
On the other hand, I terribly miss my father right at this very moment. He passed away last March 13, 2000. I regret that I wasn't at his side during the last few years of his life. Nevertheless, I will always thank him for letting me experience a wonderful childhood, for the countless PTA meetings attended during my elementary and high school days, and for the values instilled in me and my siblings. Recounting the days, he was a conscientious farm worker then. I miss you, Papa Nolding!

To all the fathers out there, ADVANCE HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!!

P.S. Special thanks to my friend, Lolit who sent the image used in this article.
