Updated 10/25/2021: OMG, I did not realize I started this blog at the end of 2018! As we get older our memories naturally start to decline. With Dementia and Alzheimers on the rise, maintaining good memory skills is imperative. I use this list, from Vocabulary.com, with my high school homeschooled children. Not only is it good for them, but it is good for me to learn and retain new words. Since they are in school they do more than 1 word a week, but for adults with much busier lives, 1 word a week is great. Aids to help you remember the words are: Keep a journal of all the words, there are 100 of them total, write the word, and definition 10 times, then read it back out loud 10 times. Use the word in a sentence, and write it in your journal. Each week review the words from the previous week, saying them out loud 10 times each. I will post a new word each week until all 100 are posted. This is a great way to start off 2019.
The first word is Abjure. Use any method you choose to look this word up. Comment below if you are joining this challenge, and let me know how it is going. I myself will follow along. According to vocabulary.com abjure means to formally reject something or disavow it.
