Work on Increasing Your Cognitive Skills, Including Memory

I have written many times about my lack of memory, I can’t remember much of anything. My memory is so bad that my daughter actually informs people that she is my memory. Everyone laughs but in all reality it is kind of concerning that my memory is failing me so soon, I am only 29 years old.

As the economy keeps sinking and people start having to work later in life it seems memory is something that people are going to have to start focusing on increasing. I think the older we get our brain just can’t handle all of the information we have placed within it and so in order to keep our cognitive skills, including memory, sharp is to focus on fitness for the brain.

Yes, you heard me right, I want you to start focusing on fitness for your brain in addition to fitness for your body! I know, like you needed one more thing to work on. I certainly don’t need another fitness task added to my day but I think keeping your cognitive skills is extremely important in this day and age.

I look at my grandmother who actually retired at her retirement age and think “will this be me”, but in all reality it won’t be. My retirement age isn’t going to be as young as it was for her and if I do get to retire it’s only going to be from my hard work and savings account by the sounds of the sloping economy. If I have to base retirement on my own savings account I will be working until I hit the grave because I am self employed, anyone who is self employed knows when it’s good it’s good and when it’s bad it’s bad.

Whether you are self employed or an employee at a company, please be aware that the more years that go by, the more financially status changes and the later in life we will be forced to work before being able to retire so please work on exercises to increase your cognitive skills before it’s too late!

What To Buy a Boy Turning Five

My middle child and first born son is turning five this coming Saturday (the 13th) and I have no clue what to get him for his birthday, although I do know he wants to go to Chuck E Cheese for his birthday so maybe I don’t buy a gift, I just take him there for a great time? If I were to purchase him a gift here are some ideas of things my son would love for his fifth birthday….

Wood Stacking Robots $15.49

Cars Mack Hauler $19.56

Matchbox Skybuster Cargo Carrier $49.99


The Amazing Spiderman Kids' Folding Scooter $27.94


Nerf Quick Blast Game $14.50

My daughter has a scooter so I know AJ would love to have his own scooter so that he didn’t have to share his sisters scooter. I also know that my son loves anything to do with Cars because we recently took him to watch Cars 2 in the theater and that kid didn’t move his eyes off of the screen plus he has a Doc Hudson and Mcqueen matchbox car that he loves dearly!

I also know my son loves throwing things down and family game nights, we often play cards before bedtime and so I think the Nerf game would fit that love of his!

What did you or would you get a five year old boy for his birthday?
