How To Improve Your Memory

As i am back to school, my most concern is my memory! Considering the fact that i had undergone caesarian operation and they said that anesthetic will affects your memory or decrease your memory. Maybe its true because i tends to forget a lot of things or i am just disorganize. However, because i want the best for my studies and dont want to fail as much as possible. I gather few information here and would love to share it with you. This is beneficial to those people who are poor in memory and or those who would love to improve their memory as well.

Here are ways that can help you improve your memory:

Use triggers, links, better known as mnemonics. Associate memories with stimuli, such as images, sounds, smells, touch, tastes, languages, emotions, etc. Make your triggers positive, as your memory tends to block negative images, exaggerate its size and importance, incorporate humor, view it all in vivid 3 dimensional colors, and use symbols to help recall more complex messages.

Intend to memorize it. Our memory is at its best when we WANT to memorize, and when we have a strong motivation to memorize. Ever read a text, then a minute later not remember it? Probably because you weren't that interested in it in the first place. To remember it, you have to WANT to remember it.

Learn to visualize your thoughts. Your brain can think in terms of words and in terms of images. Therefore, when memorizing an item, learn to recall it in ways that you can explain it, and in ways that you can see it.

Speak out loud! When you recite something or read something out loud, it brings more attention and motivation to it, which will help you remember it better. As well, the adding of another sense (sound) helps with memorization.

Eat the right food. Fiber and vitamin C rich foods such as cantaloupe, blueberries, asparagus, and sweet potatoes can help enhance your memory. Foods containing beta carotene, such as red foods, help with memory as well. Some of these foods are watermelon, strawberries, tomatoes, cherries, and radishes.

Use technology to your advantage. Although technology is a reason that our existence is inflicted with so much information, and thus test our memory like never before, it can also be a very useful tool to help with your memory. Use organizers, day planners, computers, alarm clocks, and the likes to help you recall and remember things that you would normally not.

Informative post. Our parents suggest a food remedy for memory improvement..... put about 7/8 almonds in water and then after some time peel off the skin and eat them before having your breakfast.....i.e. on empty stomach. Best wishes for your health. I'm impressed/surprised that you manage to maintain 3 quality blogs with such a busy schedule :)
