What you drink influences how your memory works as well.
Beverages such as tea and coffee stimulate the brain.
They do this with caffeine, but also with other compounds that work to help the brain locate memories when you need them… such as where your car keys are this time.
You should also avoid alcohol… sorry.
Everyone has experienced the extreme effects that alcohol can have on the brain.
The bad news is that even when you’re not feeling forgetful yet, it’s chipping away at your brain’s ability to create memories.
Sleep is a necessary part of protecting your brain.
The brain needs that time to rest and to focus on internal issues such as mending connections and resetting hormone balances.
