10 Simple Habits That Could Help You Live To 100
Dr. Oz reveals the 10 simple habits to keep you healthy enough to live to 100—or beyond.
Dial One Phone Number from Memory Every Day
Whether you own a smart phone or a regular "old fashioned" cell phone, these everyday devices have made the habit of memorizing phone numbers a thing of the past. While the convenience of programmed phone numbers can be quite handy, it's not doing much of a favor to your brain. A simple way to keep your mind alert and active is to dial at least one memorized phone number a day. This will help you practice your brain's chunking ability, the ability to group information together into "chunks," helping to keep your memory function strong.
As a reminder, always consult your doctor for medical advice and treatment before starting any program.
