Challenge your memory with something new

You can improve your memory by learning new things. Your brain is like a muscle because it gets stronger with exercise. When you’re learning something new, you’re giving your mind the challenge it needs to develop.

So, ask yourself, what have you’ve always wanted to learn? Choose something new and challenging. It should also be rewarding and allow you to progress from novice to expert.

For example, learn a new language, photography, guitar, or take martial arts classes. Try anything you haven’t done before, and that isn’t too easy because you have to push yourself to grow. After you master it, move on to something new.
