7 Movement Habits to Improve Your Memory Now

Kymberly Williams-Evans, MA

Kymberly speaking at Rancho la Puerta Fitness Spa on Memory BoostingWant to have a better memory doing what comes inexpensively and immediately?

Take a look at the following images I used in the presentation I gave last week at Rancho la Puerta Fitness Spa located in Tecate, MX. The Ranch is so wonderful and special that I wanted to make sure my session was as valuable. If memory serves me right, the following 7 factors will improve your recall, memory, attention span, and focus.  ha ha ha Oh, and my presentation was well received too!

Before you get to those 7 things you can do to gain for the brain to the max, note that the key is to engage in CARDIO activity. While ALL exercise is thought to improve cognitive skills, cardio is top doggie. If you combine cardio with any of the 7 factors coming right up, you are getting exponential return on your exercise investment.

Yup, cardio has more benefit for your gray matter than crossword puzzles, learning a new language, sudoku, and international travel (though these are all helpful).  Say, click that link <—- to read about how smart Nepal made me.
