8. Exercise! It can help reduce the normal memory loss associated with aging.
9. Play Mah-Jongg! A game in which you must visually match tiles as quickly as possible.10. Smell! Having a distinct smell around while studying or memorizing and having that smell present when you sleep can enhance all that hard work!
