What are the best types of memory exercises?

There is no real scientific evidence to show that one form of activity may be better than another in order to exercise memory. The best type of memory stimulation is to always partake in an activity that is novel or new. Nothing beats socialisation, attending meetings, and participating in senior club activities. Avoid repetitive exercises that do not stimulate the formation of new connections in the brain. An example of such an activity is knitting the same pattern repeatedly.
