In brief: Practice!

Practice, practice, practice! the more you use your brain, the better you'll get.
Of course, if you use it only specific areas, those are the only areas in which you'll get better. Still, studies show that those who read, complete crossword puzzles, etc do better. There are many free computer memory games available online. Just realize we don't have any proof that one is better than rest.
