“Um, where did I put those car keys?”
“I’m sorry. What’s your name again?”
Sound familiar? We all tend to forget little things now and then. But did you know you can improve your memory by spending a few minutes each day outdoors surrounded by nature? Recent studies by Dr. March Berman of the University of Michigan confirm that interacting with nature can stimulate the memory and improve your attention span. So, go on outside! Take a walk along a beach or hike a mountain trail. Mow the lawn or get your hands dirty while gardening. Get a little exercise outdoors and you’ll not only become physically fitter, you’ll think more clearly, too.
