Memory Care: Learn A New Word A Week

Welcome back, and Happy Memorial Day to all who serve this great country.  This week our word to memorize is deciduous.  Now maybe you have heard of deciduous trees.  That will give  you a clue if you don’t know what this word means.  Follow the steps below, and be sure to catch up with all of the other words in the series, by checking the archives.  These words will actually double as a homeschool lesson for my 10th grader next year.  She will be required to do all of the steps that I ask of you.

Get out your journal, or locate it on your electronic device.  Look up the definition of the word, deciduous.  Write the word and the definition 10 times each.  The go back and say the word, and definition out loud 10 times.  Use the word, deciduous in a sentence, and try to find a synonym for it.  You can draw a picture that describes the word, or write a paragraph using the word as many times as you can.  Then, go back over all the previous words.  See how many you already remember.  Write them out again, if you need to, to help improve remembering them.

Memory Care: Learn A New Word Each Week

I have been a lazy blogger this past week.  I only managed one post in that time period.  It was nice break, though, and I was kind of busy.  My daughter started horseback riding lessons, the AC was broken and had to be gutted and fixed, my son started his first job, and there were a ton of birthdays to attend.

But, now back to blogging.  I hope everyone is doing well.  This week is word #11, but it seems we have done so many more than that, lol.  The word this week is Chromosome.  I hope you have been following along, and studying all the previous words.  So, in your journal, or online tool, write the word, look up the definition, write it 10 times.  Then say it out loud 10 times.  Use the word in a sentence, try to think of a synonym, write a short paragraph using the word as many times as you can, or draw a picture of the word.  All of these things will aid you in remembering the word, and the definition.  Now go back over the previous 10 words, and say them 10 times each.  Do the other exercises, as well, if you are having a hard time remembering the words, and definitions.

Thursday, for the next issue of hurricane prep with kidney disease, I will discuss drinks.  I hope everyone has an amazing Tuesday!

Memory Care: Learn A New Word A Week

I missed last week’s word, sorry about that.  Sometimes life gets a little crazy.  The word for this week, is, circumnavigate.  Don’t you love big fancy words?  Remember you should be keeping all the words in a journal, or online document.  I find if you write them, rather than type them it helps a lot in remembering them.  Hand writing is becoming extinct.  Write the word, and definition, 10 times each.  Then try to use the word in a sentence, find a synonym, draw a picture, or write a short paragraph using the word as many times as you can.  Then say the word, and definition out loud, 10 times each.  Go back over the other words, repeating 10 times each.  Test yourself to see how many you remember.  Are you following along?  How are you doing?

There are many other ways to help your memory.  If you would like to learn some other methods, use the contact form below to message me for a free meet and greet.  Tomorrow, or Wednesday I will put out my May calendar, and monthly special.

Memory Care: Learn A New Word A Week

Welcome back!  I missed my Sweating on Sunday post, yesterday.  We had some nasty storms come through, and I just didn’t get on.  This series, Memory Care, is the most popular posts for likes, and views, of any that I have done yet.  It shows me people are really concerned with their Memory Care, and so they should be.  The word for this week is, Circumnavigate.

You should have a journal, with at least 14 words in it now.  Look up the meaning, and write it ten times.  Then say it out loud ten times.  Use the word in a sentence.  Think of synonyms, write a funny paragraph, or use pictures.  Whatever will help you remember.  Then go back over all the other words.  You should really be starting to easily remember the words at the top of the list.  You have been repeating them for 14 weeks.  Close your eyes and test yourself, or make a test by writing the word, and no definition, and then you fill it in.

Good luck!  See you next week.

Easter is this coming Sunday, and I still have not decided what to eat, except for dessert, lol.  Ham is definitely out.  I was at Trader Joe’s today, because I love them, but their ham was 62 dollars.  Argh I almost laughed out loud!  Not only is ham awful for me, but at that price forget it.  If you don’t know, Trader Joe’s is all organic, but much more affordable than Whole Foods, or even Publix, and I love Publix.  If you have CKD, and come across this post, let me know what healthy options you are having.  I will share what I decide on Foodie Friday.  Might be salad, lol.

Memory Care: Circumlucotion

Updated 11/8/2021: I realized after I thought I picked up on the list where I left off, that I actually covered more words than I thought.

Before I get to this week’s word, I was contacted by someone who wanted to know what it means to give medical advice, and why I would not do it.  So, here is a definition for giving medical advice, medical advice is the provision of a formal professional opinion regarding what a specific individual should or should not do to restore or preserve health. Typically, medical advice involves giving a diagnosis and/or prescribing treatment for a medical condition.  Further into this topic discussing facts, or information is not giving medical advice.  I do not diagnose, nor do I treat.  I will work within a diet, or exercise regime if you already have one, except for walking. Walking is generally safe for everyone, and I do have a Walking Buddly Plan. That is part of the reason for the meet and greet, to see if you have underlying health diagnoses that need to be taken into account.   Helping you set realistic, attainable goals, and learning ways to meet those health goals, is what a Health Coach does.   You have to know your goal, or at least have some idea of your goal, and then a Health Coach helps you create realistic ways to meet those goals.  Health Coaches are not meant to replace a doctor.

OK, on to our Memory Care word for this week:  circumlocution.  Watch the very short video below and you will get a general idea of this word, then look up the word, then in your journal write the word, and the definition 10 times.  Then use it in a sentence, try to come up with synonyms for the word, draw it in a picture, or write a short paragraph using the word as many times as you can.  Go back over all the previous words, saying them out loud with the definition, at least ten times.  You should be starting to remember the ones at the beginning of the list, especially if you have been repeating them each week.  All the previous words can be found in the archives.  How are you doing so far?  Are you testing yourself each week? I hope to have time this week, 11/8/2021, to create a free printable for my newsletter followers to learn and quiz themselves. If you would like to purchase a journal with my artwork on it, see the image below.

Memory Care: Learn A New Word A Week

Welcome back to the memory care word challenge.  It should be getting tough by now, but not too tough.  If you are reviewing your words each week then you should be able to retain them, or at least parts of them.  Are you testing yourself to see how much you are remembering?

This week’s word is churlish.  Remember look up the definition, then write the word, and the definition in your journal ten times.  Then read it out loud ten times.  Use it in a sentence, and try to come up with some synonyms for the word.  For some people writing and reading it out loud at the same time also helps.  Go back over all the previous words, and see what you remember.  Write them again if you need to.  Whatever it takes to cement them in your head.  If you like to associate words with pictures draw a picture to go with the word.  I think that is an exceptional way to learn new words.  Or, write a short paragraph story.  This list of words will be incorporated into my homeschool daughter’s curriculum next year.  All of these things I am telling you will help her to learn them as well.  I like the picture and paragraph story idea.

Happy Memory Monday!  Use the contact form below to send me a message, or leave me a comment.

Memory Care: Learn A New Word A Week

If you are following along, this is word #11.  All the previous words can be found in the archives.  The word for this week is, chromosome.  Most of you may already know the definition of this word. Can you use it in a sentence?  Remember write the word in your journal ten times with the definition.  Then say out loud the word, and the definition.  Then go over the whole list saying it out loud, with the definition.  Then try testing yourself to see if you know them all.  Don’t forget to use the word in a sentence.  Sometimes it can help you figure out the word you are looking for.  How are you doing?  If you are having a hard time, try writing them out, and saying them out loud as you write.  So far I am doing good.  The list is getting longer now, so it will start to get harder.

There are tons of ways to improve memory skills.  If you would like to work with me to reach your goals, use the contact form below to message me for a free meet and greet.

Memory Care: Learn A New Word A Week Challenge

OK, back to my regular scheduled posts.  This week, we are on our 10th word, Chicanery.  That means you will have memorized 10 words.  Are you testing yourself, to see if you are remembering them?  Write the word of the week, in your journal, 10 times each with the definition.  Then go back over it and say it 10 times out loud.  For some people saying it while you write it works even better.  Use the word in a sentence, and write out the sentence 10 times.   Now, go back over the other 9 words, say the word, close your eyes and see if you can visualize the definition.  Practice these each week, or more often if you are having a hard time remembering them.  How are you doing?  Leave me a comment, and let me know you have joined in.  All of the previous words can be found in the archives at the bottom of this blog.

Memory Care Learn A New Word A Week: Bowdlerize

Isn’t that a fancy sounding word?  Say it ten times fast, lol.  I can’t do it.  The word for this week is Bowdlerize.  You should be keeping your words in some kind of a journal. I use Google docs as an online journal.  Make sure you look up the definition, write the word and the definition 10 times each, then say out loud the word and the definition 10 times each.  Then go over all the previous words.  Try to quiz yourself to see if you are remembering them.  If you are not remembering them, try using them in a sentence, and saying them all out loud, again, with the definition.  The more you see it, say it, and write it out, the better the chances of remembering them.  You can study them as often as you like.  Try making a song, or synonyms for the words.  It can be fun!

Remember if you want to work on your Memory skills, use the contact button, or my email address above, to arrange a free meet and greet.  There is no obligation, and if you don’t like what I say you owe nothing.

Memory Care Learn A New Word A Week Challenge: Bellicose

Happy President’s Day.  If you live outside the USA, then happy Monday!  We had no homeschool lessons today, as it is President’s Day, but I did get a ton of stuff done.  Gardening, yard work, and cleaning the back porch.  Our dogs hang out there a lot, and they are super messy.  I love gardening!  Watching things grow, and change day by day.  It is just so cool!  Do you garden?  It is almost Spring, so time to start thinking about it, and walking.  Here in FL we can walk all year.  Don’t forget to ask me about my Walking Buddy program.  I will walk with your, right over your phone.

So, now for the word of the week, bellicose.  Once you look up the meaning of this word I am sure you can name one person it would describe, at least.  Look it up, write it down 10 times, say it 10 times, and then use it in a sentence.  Go over all the previous words as well, to help them get stuck in your memory.  Now that we are quite a few weeks in try testing yourself to see how much you remember.  If you are new to this blog, find all the previous words in the archives.  Remember if you follow this blog you will get all new posts sent right to your email.  If you need to learn other ways, or need help with your memory, message me for a free meet and greet.  All monthly plans in February are 10% off, for new customers.
