You can develop a better memory in less than ten minutes a day with these simple techniques. Learn what triggers forgetfulness and how you can prevent it from happening again.
Make sure to exercise and sleep well
Do you want to improve your memory? Then it is important that you exercise and sleep well. Exercise has been shown to increase the number of new brain cells in the hippocampus, which is responsible for storing memories. Sleep deprivation can cause a lack of focus, attention, and memory problems.
Create a routine for yourself that you can follow each day
Do you often forget to do important things? Then it may be a good idea to create a routine for yourself that you can follow each day. For example, you could set up an alarm on your computer or phone so that when the alarm goes off in the morning, you know it is time to take a shower!
Take time to meditate and be mindful
Breathing exercises and meditation can help you to be more mindful of your surroundings. You can reduce day-to-day stress, which will also make memory recall easier for you.
Play games like chess or cards to keep your mind sharp
Playing memory games such as chess or memory card games like memory can help improve your memory recall speed and accuracy. You could also take up other hobbies which will exercise different parts of your brain, such as languages, music or art classes.
Write down what you want to remember, such as an appointment or the grocery list, in order to increase memory retention
A memory technique which many people have used is to physically write down what they are trying to remember. By writing it down, memory recall improves because you are storing the memory in more than one place. You can also cut up the sheet of paper into smaller memory pieces so that you can encode more information on several different sheets rather than just one.
Develop memory techniques such as memory palaces or memory cards to help you recall information
A memory palace is a memory technique developed in ancient Greece. In memory palaces, you visualize a location you know well and place to-be-remembered items in different parts of the memory palace. You then walk through the memory palace and view each item along with your surroundings.
Do not lose hope if you can’t develop a better memory right away, it takes time and practice
Start with memory techniques that are easier to learn. For example, color memory technique is easy to learn and will help improve memory before moving on to more difficult memory techniques.
Memory games are one way to work on your memory, but if you find yourself struggling with this or other memory-related tasks, don’t wait until it’s too late. It will take time and practice for you to develop a better memory.
