Have you ever entered a room and forgotten why you’re there?
When was the last time you forgot where you parked your car when grocery shopping?
What’s the last important thing that you misplaced and when did you “lose” it?
It’s frustrating, isn’t it? If you’re of a certain age, this happens to you a lot, I’d guess. And if you’re not, I’ll bet it happens to one of your parents or grandparents, if not both.
When your memory seems to have a little hole in it, I’ll bet you get a bit anxious because you think you have the start of a dementia, right?
Is it dementia? Well, probably not. It’s normal aging for most of us, as I discovered in a recent interview.
Today, on Senior Planet, the ever-incisive and practical Ruth Curran gives us all ways we can cope with these memory lapses–and even prevent them. That’s right, prevent them. And guess what? Her techniques work! I know this, because I use them. And so does my husband. In fact, he used one yesterday morning.
I hope you’ll visit the Q&A here, and comment over at Senior Planet, share or both. If you’re not a senior, I hope you’ll send this link to seniors you know and love.
Ruth is one of my dearest friends, and I am so glad she’s sharing these life-enhancing techniques with the rest of us. There’s no need to live in fear and anxiety. And, there are ways to prevent those little memory blips.
Please help me (and her) spread the word.
