Lost memory. How to train?

I'm 30, I began to notice that the more you delve into programming, the more I realize that something is wrong with the memory. Or not? All that concerns the study of new material, frameworks, languages, etc., there is no problem., but the rest of the trouble. For example write a small application that gave away and forgot, after a couple of months and kind of see what I wrote(my handwriting, comments, etc.), but need to step it up to remember.

Still tense, I just need to remember that was a week or a month ago. Wife to quarrel sometimes realize that I don't remember... Corny - don't even remember in a few days th the quarrel was)
What to read? What do you do? And whether to sound the alarm?

1) health Problems - the doctor
2) Low standard of living - to start to sleep, less strain, less stressout, sports. Can you have constant stress and a condition called the sport "peretin"
3) Maybe it's just normal for you

Need to find a balance. It's hard.
1. To protect sleep. Send all away and start to sleep.
2. To limit the working time. Hi mode from 8 to 5. I'm serious.
3. Physical activity. Force yourself to walk at least an hour a day. Half an hour to work, half an hour from work. Go a few stops early and walk. If you get on your transport - Park further from the office.
4. Stay with the change of scenery - to go to another city, to the country, to visit his parents. For example, you can go to a nearby town. In Moscow - in the area where it was not or in the suburbs. Necessarily have to be a change of scenery and appearance. In this respect a great influence angling alone. Helps to relax, slowly to think about things. Calms the nerves.
5. To abandon bad habits. Do not overeat, not smoke, not thumps too. Completely and turn is not necessary, but can reduce.
6. Wife once to say that if you don't stop to yell at you, then to 45 instead of you, she'll still have a mound of damp earth. And if she has a problem with that, let him go to the psychologist.
7. To upload a detail of the head in the family calendar, to accustom the wife to it (I have so many friends doing who have several children, there are clubs, festivals, all kinds of schedules).
1 - hard Junior year, ear plugs do not save, Yes and the dream was always sensitive
2 - the working day is restricted, it is still home and the kids want to sit down, put to sleep. After want something finished, but it's already 22:00 and further, to an hour only to sleep, at 6:30 lifting at work.
3 - walking Yes, there is a couple of miles in the morning and evening, on the weekends more, but sport still does.
4 - with young children in addition to Hiking as hard to break away and go. Grandparents very far, sit with the kids, except us, nobody. Forgot when corny went together somewhere. She is also exhausted + and her nights freelancing. Fishing is, Yes, there where he moved before the new year, surrounded by nature and lakes. Will resume in the spring )
5 - drink do not drink high beer once a week, Smoking was reduced to packs for 3 days.
6 - she is not screaming, just bytovuha..
7 - section Yes, I thought, but when?))) - Tabitha.Yundt commented on April 7th 20 at 15:52

5 hours in healthy people sleeping. Low 7 high 8:30
@Keaton, ok. Sleep only REM sleep if you the same as in continuous of 8 hours.

Submit as an answer and let TAS, I was what? I simply said to him what his problem is - Karlie commented on April 7th 20 at 16:21
@Keaton, or are you from there, and came with advertising? No no, I'm experimenting with a sleep quit, I have enough 8 hours, thank you. - Karlie commented on April 7th 20 at 16:24
I agree, we need more in the day time - Tabitha.Yundt commented on April 7th 20 at 15:54
A maximum of 12. - Madeline commented on April 7th 20 at 15:57
Important proper sleep, not its duration. - Caesar.Rutherford53 commented on April 7th 20 at 16:00
@Keaton, it includes the correct length.
@roselyn, tried to sleep at least a month for 12 hours a day? - Karlie commented on April 7th 20 at 16:03
@elna.Halvorson64need. But are unable to increase it - will have to compress things. Between success and health in Your case, select health. - Karlie commented on April 7th 20 at 16:06
@watson.Daugherty, tried all his life to sleep at 10 on weekdays, 12 on weekends. - Madeline commented on April 7th 20 at 16:09
@watson.Daugherty, About polyphasic sleep heard? 3-4 hours with a vengeance and sleep right. - Caesar.Rutherford53 commented on April 7th 20 at 16:12
@roselyn, so not a 12 "then 10, then 12".
@Keaton, I even practiced. It's not 3-4 a day, and 3-4 times in 6-8 hours, which is already equal to about 8 per day. - Karlie commented on April 7th 20 at 16:15
@watson.Daugherty, There are different options (for example, the Uberman, the Everyman from 2 to 4 hours total per day) - Caesar.Rutherford53 commented on April 7th 20 at 16:18
@roselyn, a little jealous your routine is "sleep 10 hours" on weekdays. Once you've developed such a regime or you are by nature so the body works? I have, even if I try to go to bed at the same time, it is impossible to sleep. Always start about the problem some think or just about the business, even if very tired. Because of this, not at once to sleep, and ultimately pure sleep around 6-7 hours out. - Lee90 commented on April 7th 20 at 16:27
@aaron.Pagac, and I envy people who manage to sleep for 8 hours. I fall asleep way too long. - Madeline commented on April 7th 20 at 16:30

Solution
Also 30 =) welcome to the old fart club.
My proven list:

-Drink vitamins.
Sleep the normal 8 hours.
-Learn portions, not all at once.
-Constant practice in the language, otherwise forgotten. It's all true. Some sitting here, not to forget.
-Try to exercise (say, running), gets the blood pumping in my head= food for the brain.

I also recommend to drink "Pikamilon" every six months.
Dilates blood vessels of the brain, thinking is very easy. Sometimes 2 thoughts at the same time
However, the effects can be temper

And as mentioned above - family displaces a lot. Why don't You have a problem.
The temper in my blood) This does not scare - Tabitha.Yundt commented on April 7th 20 at 15:56
April 7th 20 at 16:21
And dobavlu another recipe: memory training. Strange as it may seem, from the lack of loads atrophy not only the muscles of the body but grey sinuous muscle in the head.
As a variant: to remember every day, such as bedtime, what happened in the past day, for yesterday, for yesterday, well, etc, etc....

PS, Or sit in public transport is a controller-objecively. That's who who, and they have memory... Remember all who are ticket already sold!

Solution
As someone who had this same thing years ago will tell you this:

- the first thing that can be is a physiological brain disorder. Tumors, multiple sclerosis, different disease, depression (present but not here "life I don't fancy it"), different pathological status and other things which objectively affect its operation. Then, if you are serious, you need to go and check what is possible and to talk with a competent doctor (how to find it is another question).

the second - a banal fatigue. Yes, now you get tired faster and easier and for this we must adapt. 20-25 can not sleep a few days in a row to cut the code 20 hours without getting up, eat one Coca-Cola with dostom and once a week to sleep all the way, waking up fresh as a Daisy. After 30 is no longer working. So, in order of importance:
1. quality sleep and hygiene. 30 years is the highest niedoceniane this factor (previously we slept like like and hearty)
2. a normal diet and physical activity. Don't need to be vegan or be into the stadium - just a balanced meal, do not overeat, and exercise room/something active several times a week
3. daily routine to be able to manage stress and to relax. This is also something that needs to be rethought. "I shall try and do" or "well, I'm in the flow, sing in the evening" "today will sit a little longer, tomorrow I'll sleep more" - it's harmful.

These three are the most banal, the most effective and most difficult to implement in reality.
"drink your vitamins-nootropics", "get yourself together" or "to establish internal energy" - is NOT working, but is extremely popular, because, firstly, soothes (which also gives a small effect), and secondly, to do really nothing, everything is as we like :). Then come to the "banal" just later and in worse condition.
amendment - vitamins can help, but only a very certain, and only if you have a real problem their lack. You can find out first talking with a specialist, then passing the tests.

Buy and drink "multivitamins" in a drugstore - is self-deception. Even if some important for the brain is not enough, then a high probability that you drink not, or wrong, or improve something that is not necessary to raise and get other problems. - Americo_Kuvalis commented on April 7th 20 at 15:58
@Vaughn_Haleyas You realized that something wrong with memory and what was restored? - Tabitha.Yundt commented on April 7th 20 at 16:01
@elna.Halvorson64and restored with resumption of normal lifestyle and putting yourself in good condition. Now well see when I am tired it is harder to remember something to remember, but it's not just memory concerns, brain work, attention dissipates, the emotional level is low. The state in order - everything is fine. - Americo_Kuvalis commented on April 7th 20 at 16:04
@elna.Halvorson64, particularly If you are worried about the memory and you have a serious reason to think that it really is "something wrong" - then you direct road to the doctor, the sooner the better. Alzheimer's you so far, but multiple sclerosis in 30 years of already happens, for example, and various other things.
but very large the chances are that you're fine in this regard, and the problems of "functional" - improper use of his brain-the body so to speak :) - Americo_Kuvalis commented on April 7th 20 at 16:07
how do you besite .
you are the ones who says YOU HAVE a TUMOR!!! TO THE DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY

the author entered into a vicious circle of anxiety , and you give him this shit write out which he will be more panic and more and more symptoms will invent. Reading like you in internetica. - gordon26 commented on April 7th 20 at 16:10
@claude_Gleason57If you hate people who write "you have a tumor" I got to do with it? Why you hate some people and you dumped it on another?

I never wrote that the author of the tumor.
And if you bothered to read more than two words of the text, turn off your rage, and turn on your brain you would see that I wrote the opposite. And what's more, if the author really increased anxiety (not a fact) and he will follow my advice - it is a huge part of this anxiety it will relieve. So preload whatever you burn and breathe calmly.

Your health as a preventive measure to check it is right, regardless of how it infuriates you. - Americo_Kuvalis commented on April 7th 20 at 16:13
but that's not a real "life I don't fancy it"

Meh, well, you certainly Yes..
This is the very beginnings of this depri. Since I got this crazy idea that drew attention to themselves - so you need a good psychologist to go, at least. But rather to the therapist. - Jovan.Hansen commented on April 7th 20 at 16:16

What to read? What do you do? And whether to sound the alarm?

Force yourself not to read. Get enough sleep a lot of regularly.
April 7th 20 at 15:59
Solution
Express a little unexpected thought. According to the description, you have everything in order, even without adjusting for age.

1) the Brain will not have to memorize everything. Unnecessary, especially what is marked "done" can deeply relax. This is normal! (C)

2) Mode of operation and switching of contexts can greatly influence the memorability of information. For the assimilation it is necessary to do breaks in work. The scenario is something like this: 45 minutes work, 15 minute break, when you don't do ANYTHING at all. To work voraciously bad. To overload the brain is impossible. On the other hand, the rapid and frequent context-switching due to physiology, can lead to partial loss of data from short-term memory. Read relevant non-fiction for this reason. Especially prevents the brain from bogomerzkih socialising. Context switching with dip takes about 20 minutes. Ie if you got distracted by fastbuck, a telephone conversation, then return to the programming you will be about 20 minutes. It affects the environment - the noise, especially information.

3) a Very important dream. The amount of sleep should be 7 hours. Or portions of one complete cycle (approximately 2 hours 20 minutes, it is easy to count the night by measuring the time when you Wake up). During sleep the brain processes and stores information. If he does not give to do it, then the consequences might be. Read about sleep cycles.

4) Read the literature about how the brain works, well there all is described. Earplugs, headphones with white noise, and nafig from the open space, the latter generally gigantskoe universal evil in the majority of cases. Wife setup to not distracted every 5 minutes even on the little things.

But if you suspect any illness, it is best to the doctor for examination.

Here it can be in your diet as it is balanced and so on. Also important is the sport, how often do you give him time to do strength training, do Jogging. And more important is that it is necessary to sleep at least 6 hours. While sleep needs strong, without waking. Try to go to bed and get up at the same time.

PS Especially liked:

I don't remember

What to read?
3 meals per day, sleep hours 5 to 6 max. sport - years 3 forgotten what it is (2 small children, work, excuses, etc.). - Tabitha.Yundt commented on April 7th 20 at 16:04
@elna.Halvorson64, okay. If to speak seriously, in my opinion, you have a lot of distractions - work, children. Unfortunately, they sometimes displace from the memory of some things. But generally speaking, you have not some advanced case - with many is that you have described, and without children, wives, work. Relax and just agree with his wife that will, for example, to write to not to forget important things for her. - Lee90 commented on April 7th 20 at 16:07
@elna.Halvorson64, the problem is in the control of the situation... Rethink priorities... - makenzie_Steube commented on April 7th 20 at 16:10

Even if the piano forgot the difficulty, and Spanish is not given, then.. you know. This is the essence of age - can more or less successfully only feel what you are doing with youth.

If you remember his wife and children, everything is fine. The brain is just overloaded and filters out what it considers unimportant.
The last couple of years (I'm 33) see the same thing. For example, in the evening completely forget what I had for Breakfast. And that was a week ago, are generally covered with darkness. Quarrels with his wife on this ground does not occur.
Tried vitamins do not work. Nootropics (glycine, piracetam), too. Now ordered from iHerb L-theanine, a started make can work. Sports has long been not engaged, in fact the whole day (10-12 hours) at the computer. An hour on weekdays payout with the child, then back to work if power is left. Can up to 3-4 nights. Weekend trying to do family.
And so, in particularly difficult moments, for example, may forget why you took a spoon (to put the sugar in the coffee) or just hang in the middle of the room for a few seconds.

I can through the week to forget what I wrote and this is the norm. Comments in the code, not just come up :)

Those who keep these things memory, worse process information because the brain acts as a drive, not CPU)

And regarding problem - food. Carbohydrates (any) cause the development of dementia. You can think of this early manifestation, if you really abuse flour and sweet. Read the book "Food and the brain"

Important things need to remember, and you have no problem with that. Everything else is not essential. Eat, drink, go to the toilet don't forget the family provide.

But why remember something in the project, when there is search? Don't know how much you have projects but if the project is written in readable and understandable code, that to understand is not difficult. I do not see a memory problem, rather a problem with the readability of your code, here's what you need to think about. Code must be readable without comments.
About the fights the same. If your brain does not remember the argument, so he's less important than something else. Sit down and talk quietly. Quarrels usually occur because of a lack of compromise. What does the memory do? More like your superficial attitude to family life and work. This is my personal opinion =)
April 7th 20 at 16:27
I sometimes machine, leaving, peak (close) several times :).
I'd add another method, cat. helps long and sleep well.
Starvation. Maybe it cannot be called a starvation. But something like this: get up in the morning and don't eat until dinner - only drink. to drink it is necessary much. the main thing then for dinner do not overeat, and sleep will be hard. maybe a little headache - it will pass - like the toxins. but after dinner, off so. and till the morning sleep.
