Now where did I put that...?
Under the category of “knowledge is power” I figure one thing I can do with this blog is pass along nuggets of useful information that can benefit all of us.
It’s no secret that I have a passion for outdoor activity and nutrition, driven by my battle with a 48-year-old spinal cord injury.
To that end, I have a favorite website that is chock full of healthy outdoor activities, exercise and nutrition.
It’s called LiveStrong.com, and it’s not connected to former cyclist Lance Armstrong, who had a cancer foundation called Livestrong, before being banned from cycling.
In fact, LiveStrong.com, based in New York City, is entirely women-owned and operated. It’s extremely well done.
A recent article caught my attention and I wanted to pass it along. It’s too good to miss.
Written by award winning health writer Hallie Levine, it’s one of the most enlightening and useful articles I’ve ever read about memory loss.
The title is “Why Memory Worsens as You Age, and 5 Things You Can Do About It.”
Since I’m not into plagiarism I won’t attempt to restate the article here. I will tell you that it is an enjoyable, quick read with some very surprising findings and the “5 things you can do about it” are easily doable.
It’s extremely well researched and presented in a pleasant and readable tone. No wonder Hallie wins awards.
This topic is close to home for all of us. My father struggled with memory loss and dementia during the last year of his life.
I had a very close friend die from early onset Alzheimer’s when he was 63. We all face the possibility of memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer’s.
I would strongly urge you to take a look at this article.
While there have been thousands of words written about dementia and memory loss, I’m confident you’ll find these words memorable and useful. Click here to read it.
