(HealthDay News) -- Forgetfulness may be a normal sign of aging, or a warning sign of a condition such as Alzheimer's disease.

In case of the former, the National Institute on Aging suggests how to help sharpen your memory:

  • Create lists or use a calendar.
  • Associate what you want to remember with something meaningful, such as a favorite song or TV show.
  • Engage in new hobbies that challenge you physically and mentally.
  • Get plenty of regular exercise.
  • Limit alcohol consumption.
  • Find healthy ways to manage anxiety and stress, and see a doctor if you struggle with these feelings.
