With these daily exercises you will learn how to flex your mind, improve your creativity and boost your memory.

Try to do some mentalrobics every single day!

Prospective memory is the memory for actions that you want to take in the future. Retrospective memory is the memory of things that have already happened. It is generally more bothersome to people to forget to do something than it is to forget something that you already did.

One way to improve prospective memory is to link it to something that you cannot forget. For example, if you are having trouble remembering to mail your letters, put the letters under your keys. The next time you leave the house, you will be reminded of the mail.

Another way is visualize the intended action in a place where you will not forget it. For example, visualize your car turning into a giant mailbox. The next time you see your car, you will be reminded to mail your letters.

Sometimes you may also have trouble remembering routine events, such as taking your medicine. One way to help this is to work the event into your habitual daily routine. For example, start taking your pills before breakfast. You will never forget to eat breakfast, so if you get in the habit, you will no longer forget your medicine.
