Your memory is precious and sensitive, and if you have ever walked into a room to then wonder what you had gone in there for, or suddenly found you couldn’t remember someone’s name, then you will know how important your memory is!
Here are a few tricks and tips to improve your memory…
If you find that you have trouble remembering difficult things, then try writing down a to-do list. The act of writing (for the best effect use a pen and paper rather than your phone) helps to reinforce the information in your mind as you are making several connections between your brain and your tasks.
You could also try visual association to help with your memory issues. The technique basically entails putting a picture with each phrase you want to memorize, making remembering that phrase easier. Studies have shown that combining words and pictures can be an effective way to remember things.
Many people use visualization to remember information. Try visualizing what you wish to remember, create mind pictures, draw diagrams or charts to aid in remembering information in textbooks or during lectures at school. The mind is very effective in remembering visual details and recalling images, even images long-forgotten.
While actively creating different associations in your brain may help your memory right now, can you actually improve it (or keep it in good condition)?
