Memory Care Monday: Abstemious

Updated 11/29/2021: As I continue to edit the old posts from this list, I have created a free printable with the current 15 words. You can print it, keep it in a journal, and write the definitions right on that paper. If you would like the free printable please sign up for my Mailchimp newsletter below. I will send it in each newsletter. After I have edited the current words covered, and I start adding new words, each month I will send a free printable with a kind of game or way to help remember the words. Do you remember the definition of words 1 and 2, abjure and abrogate? Leave the definitions in the comments if you do. Last year I shared Christmas gift ideas for people with CKD. This year watch for gift ideas for people with Dementia.

Welcome to week 3 of the Memory Care Challenge.  How are you doing?  Are you following along?  You still always can get in at any time.  Why do memory care challenges?  Because it keeps your brain healthy.  Dementia and Alzheimers are on the rise in this country, and one of the best things you can do to help lower your risk of getting those diseases is to exercise your brain.  There is a total of 100 words on this list, and it is a list I used with my high school son, and now my daughter.  I didn’t learn the list with him but am learning it with her.   Anytime you want to memorize something, write it 10 times, then say it out loud 10 times.  Each week I go back to the previous words and see if I remember them.  So, here is the word for week 3:  abstemious.  Do you already know what it means?  I kind of had an idea but wasn’t 100% sure.  This is a fun word.  Try to use it in a sentence too.  Leave me a comment, and let me know how you are doing. The short video below will help you out. I think abstemious is a very pertinent word around the holidays, lol.

There are other ways to improve memory.  I am still accepting new clients if you want to work on memory or any other health-related goals.  Use the contact button, at the bottom of this post to message me and set up a free meet and greet.
