The brain's ability to store and retrieve information increases if your memory is challenged on a regular basis.
To stay mentally sharp, you need to work your mental "muscles" each and every day. Lack of brain exercise, researchers warn, will impact your ability to connect and process information in an effective way.
The old adage "use it or lose it" is particularly important in modern times, where computers, calculators and other digital devices make it seemingly "unnecessary" to remember information - we simply record it, write it down, file it away, and immediately forget about it!
On the other hand, building your brain’s memory capabilities will automatically lead to a flexible and broad memory bank that stimulates your brain and fuels creativity - regardless of age!
Some people say that computers have made the need for information storage in the brain unnecessary. This is just as absurd as saying that we don’t need to exercise our bodies because cars, planes, washing machines etc. remove the need.
It is as easy to increase memory and intelligence as it is to increase and build physical strength and flexibility, and it is at least as important!

All great leaders and inventors have trained their brains so that they can rely on their ability to store and retrieve information for the sake of genuine, often novel solutions.
A powerful, strong brain is needed to mentally organize and make sense of information.
This way, any new information received can be integrated into the existing memory structure and may spark new ideas, understanding, and solutions.
"Our brains have an innate capacity for change no matter how old we are," says neurophysiologist Marilyn Albert, Ph.D., of the Harvard Medical School.
