Train Your Brain: Improving Your Memory With The MediLodge Whole Person Wellness Program

This month, The MediLodge Whole Person Wellness Program looks at ways to improve your memory and boost your brainpower.  Learning new skills creates connections in the brain that counteract cognitive decline. It is never too late to build brainpower with these mental exercises.

  • Take up an instrument.  One you have never tried before.
  • Learn to speak another language.
  • If you do crossword puzzles, change it up and try something new like Sudoku.
  • Play board games or computer/video games that activate strategic and memory skills
  • Dance.  Intricate choreography fine-tunes the body and the brain.
  • Draw a picture.  Drawing stimulates the brain and inspires creativity.
  • Exercise.  Long-term exercise has been proven to increase brain power and even create new neurons in the brain.
  • Laugh.  Laughter causes a release of the brain’s endorphins — chemicals that drown out pain and increase overall well-being. Laughter is a natural stress reducer.
  • Listen to music.  Studies have proven that listening to music strengthens the right-hemisphere of the brain and literally changes the structure.
  • Read a book.  Books challenge your thinking abilities and memorization skills, as well as boost vocabulary and critical thinking skills.
  • Meditate.  Meditation promotes higher levels of brain functioning and activates the area of the brain responsible for advanced thinking ability and performance.

The goal of the MediLodge Whole Person Wellness Program is to recognize the unique individuality of everyone. This approach to wellness is an active process in which everyone is encouraged to make choices towards personal growth in seven dimensions of wellness: physical, social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, occupational/vocational and financial. Most workplace wellness programs focus entirely on physical health. With a whole person wellness approach, the physical needs will not be downplayed, but will be held in equal importance as the dimensions that involve mind and spirit. In whole person wellness a high priority is placed on prevention, individual involvement and the responsibility we each have for achieving optimal wellness of body, mind and spirit.
