In many cases, memory slips are not due to aging. While it's true that memory tends to decline with age, it's also true that the high-pressure, hectic lifestyles that so many of us lead these days can have a significant impact on our ability to remember and retrieve information. In many cases, it's because we rush through something so fast or multitask most of the things we do that we aren't giving our brains sufficient time to process and store what we need to remember.
But not to worry. Whether it's normal aging or overscheduling or both, there are some fairly simple things you can do to overcome these frustrating lapses in memory.
