The best ways to improve memory are the healthy lifestyle measures: get plenty of exercise (thus extra circulation to brain), eat well with a vitamin supplement, don't smoke, use excessive alcohol, and do get plenty of sleep. In addition you can improve short-term memory by practice. Play memory games or puzzles. They are both relaxing and help your brain improve its performance.

Even dementia patients can learn and improve their memory when challenged, but not stressed. And that is a fine line to find!
