Ten expert tips on improving memory – exposed

  1. 1. Ten Expert Tips on Improving Memory – Exposed!<br />
  2. 2. Work with Your Memorization Style<br />Visual and auditory learners <br />These learning styles apply to how well we retain our memories<br />Avisual learnershould use memory techniques that employ the power of the eye to trigger your memories.<br />For example, if you meet someone named Anna at a party and wish to remember her name, you could associate Anna with her apple-red cheek. <br />
  3. 3. Repeat it Out Loud<br />Are you always forgetting what you need from the supermarket, or that important business phone number?<br />Don’t just write it down – say it out loud! <br />Our brains retain more information if we involve all of our senses in the process.<br />
  4. 4. Go for a Jog<br />Scientists have discovered a strong link between better memory skills and exercise. <br />Many neurologists think that because the part of the brain responsible for muscle movement is next to the part involved in thought and emotion, fitness stimulates both due to proximity. <br />
  5. 5. Get Those Endorphins Pumping<br />Ever notice how alert you feel after laughing through a comedy show or sharing a funny moment with a friend? <br />That’s the effect of endorphins – and when it comes to improving concentration, they’re like your body’s ultimate memory boost! <br />Laughter, exercise and other feel-good activities release these feel-good hormones. <br />
  6. 6. Practice Makes Perfect<br />When it comes to memory exercises, nothing beats an old-fashioned crossword or Sudoku puzzle. <br />Research has shown that memory skills can significantly increase over an eight-week period thanks to a daily puzzle habit.<br />Experts also recommend Sudoku and crossword puzzles as the ultimate memory games for your brain.<br />
  7. 7. Eat Plenty of Brain Food<br />Foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, tuna, walnuts and flaxseed;<br />Foods that are rich in antioxidants, such as berries (blueberries are the best), sweet potatoes, tomatoes, spinach and green tea;<br />Foods that are rich in B vitamins, such as spinach, broccoli, soybeans and black beans.<br />
  8. 8. Get a Good Night’s Sleep<br />Research has shown that sleep is vital to your ability to recall long term memory, increase concentration and even prevent memory loss.<br />
  9. 9. Ditch the Smoking Habit<br />Smoking can cause significant memory loss. <br />Can increase the risk of degenerative diseases such as brain damage, Alzheimer’s and even some types of brain cancer. <br />Smoking causes vascular disorders that restrict oxygen flow to the brain, resulting in irreversible memory loss and damage. <br />
  10. 10. Relax<br />Studies have shown that the hormone cortisol – which is produced by our bodies when we’re feeling stressed – can damage the hippocampus if exposed for too long. <br />Since the hippocampus is responsible for preserving our long term memory skills, it’s important for our brain health to unwind after a particularly stressful day.<br />
  11. 11. Over-learn Any New Information<br />When the brain encounters new information, that information is processed within our short term memories. <br />If a short term memory is not reinforced (for example, by repetition), that memory is then “thrown away” by our brains. <br />
  12. 12. Over-learn Any New Information<br />To preserve a memory, you’ll need to memorize and emphasize that new memory until it’s firmly stored away in your long term memory. <br />Experts recommend memorizing any new information for a month to ensure that it’s properly stored within the hippocampus.<br />
