(HealthDay News) -- Feeling forgetful? There are steps you can take to help boost your memory.

The American Psychological Association suggests:

  • Take mental snapshots. For example, visualize your car keys in a wooden bowl near your front door. This will help you remember where you left them.
  • Train your brain. If you meet someone named Mr. Brown, for example, picture him covered in that color.
  • Vanishing cues. If you can't remember a name, write down all the letters that you can remember. Eventually, you may be able to fill in the blanks.
  • Use technology. Your smartphone probably has a note-taking app that can send you an alert at a certain important time.
