At Brain Fitness Centers of Florida (BFCF), we provide you with an individualized short term memory loss exercises program. We start it off with a free test and then Dr. Scranton and his staff will work with you to create a tailored program that helps improve your cognitive abilities, functional outcomes, and overall quality of life. Dr. Scrantan will customize several exercises to your needs and provide you with one-on-one coaching by BCFC staff. Progress will be assessed several times to ensure improved cognitive abilities, functional outcomes, and overall quality of life. 

 Short term memory loss can seem alarming and completing tests and exercises can seem daunting. Short-term memory loss exercises will help ease those fears and anxieties. The vital component of memory is attention. Actively focusing on something helps create a personal connection, which provides meaning and makes it easier to retain information. In order to ensure that you’re making a personal connection, it’s important to create a routine of short-term memory exercises. 


 According to a study published in The National Center for Biotechnology Information, several experts tested the brain during meditation using neuroimaging. The test concluded that the “practice of meditation [can be] associated with neuroplasticity.” Meditation, and overall mindfulness practice, can be one of many short-term memory loss exercises. As we get older, our working memory slows down, which inhibits short-term memory. Since meditation has shown to increase neuroplasticity, this has enabled brain regeneration and cognitive abilities. 

According to the study, there are two main types of meditation: centralized focused and open awareness. Centralized focus meditation is composed of focusing on specific activity: repeating a sound, an image, or breathing. Whereas open awareness consists of learning to become nonreactive. Since one of the vital components of memory is attention both of these types, help reduce short-term memory loss. 

 At BCFC, we can help you set up a meditation routine that you can practice at home. All you have to do is sit in a comfortable position and slowly relax your body. To practice centralized focus meditation you can think about a scene (the beach, the forest) and pinpoint each object in that scene. Get descriptive! You can also practice your breathing and focus on inhaling for three seconds and exhaling for three seconds. Focusing on your breathing can also help with open awareness meditation. It’s about acknowledging your surroundings and naming your feelings. The high level of attention will help you retain information right after the meditation. 

Cardio Exercise for Short Term Memory Loss Exercises

Another one of the short-term memory loss exercises you can do is create and implement a consistent cardiorespiratory routine. A study published in the Journal of Exercise Rehabilitation, states that the age-old phrase, “can’t teach an old dog new tricks” was tested false. In fact, when the researchers looked at the neuroimaging of the brain while doing an aerobic exercise they found that new neurons were firing in the brain. Healthy adults who participated in the study were found to have “significant increments in memory, attention, processing speed, and executive functions.” 

 Another study cited doing 150 minutes per week (30 minutes for 5 days). At home, you can develop an exercise routine that is easy enough for you to follow. You can take a long walk around the block or to the grocery store. You can also try light stretching like yoga or Pilates. Even low impact calisthenics would work. The point is to get your heart pumping to increase blood circulation. We will help create short-term memory loss exercises that would be easy for you to accomplish. 

Brain Training

The benefits of brain training are improved executive functions (being organized, setting up a routine in the morning so you don’t forget anything, etc.), working and short-term memory, and processing speed. There are several short term memory loss exercises that are completely customizable and that you can do either BCFC with our staff or at home. As long as the brain training helps with vocabulary acquisition, word recall, critical thinking, and problem-solving. 

 There are several exercises and techniques you can do to help improve your short-term memory. There are four main parts to remembering information: make it personal, visualize what you’re trying to remember, make connections with previous knowledge, and repetition. Short-term memory loss exercises can help with brain degeneration due to aging, cancer treatments, traumatic brain injury and Alzheimer’s, and so much more.

 Several of our patients have had different types of issues with memory and we have made it our goal to help them succeed. Not only do we offer short-term memory loss exercises in Palm Harbor, but we also offer help in Clearwater, Tarpon Springs, St. Petersburg, and more cities in Central Florida.
