No, not hippo camp …
If you are still not sure, your Hippocampus is all to do with your memory. I constantly worry about mine. Mildly panicking when a word escapes me and things do not get better as you get older.
So, what can we all do to help our Hippocampus stay sharp? I am always doing crosswords … general knowledge I might add … and, sometimes, I even set a timer. Here are a few tips from Mehmet Oz that were highlighted in an article by Belleruth Naparstek – Tickle Your Hippocampus and Keep Your Brain Sharp!
These are perfect for me …
- Daydream – I do it all the time
- Get lost on purpose – interesting … but I do have a good sense of direction
- Hit your threshold – do the Times crossword, followed by intervals of intense exercise – OK about as intense as it gets these days is a brisk 35 minute walk with Cassie the Blog Dog
So what are you waiting for? Tickle your Hippocampus today.
