10 Tips to Improve Your Memory Instantly
Do you want to improve your memory immediately? No special techniques or skills required. These 10 tips will help improve your memory right away!
If you want to quickly improve your memory without having to learn any special skills or mnemonics practice these tips. These are the top 10 memory tips and memory aids to instantly improve your recall at any age.
10 tips for Better Memory:
1. Pay Attention. This may seem obvious, but try it. Often when you try and memorize, you are on "autopilot" and not focusing your attention. You cannot forget something you never really remembered in the first place. Make certain to understand, or gain an appreciation of the value of what you are seeking to learn.
2. Create Associations. Actively seek to forge new associations with what you are learning to knowledge you already have. This will greatly reinforce your learning and improve the odds of moving the information from your short-term memory to your long-term memory.
3. Form Visual Associations. Any information that is concrete and tangible is more memorable than abstract information. Seek to visualize in some fashion what you are learning. Doing so will force you to pay attention (the number one tip).
4. Repetition. Use it or lose it. It has been said, "repetition is the mother of learning" for good reason. Modern research has proven this centuries old maxim. Review information at regularly spaced intervals for long term retention.
5. Read information out loud and write it out. The more physical senses you use in remembering, the better. The "ancients" always read out loud for a reason – it helped memory retention when memory was essential prior the printing press. Modern research confirms this practice.
6. Use Memory Prompts or Cues. Don't be afraid to write out "sticky-notes" or other reminders for yourself. The use of a string around your finger is a simple method to prompt you memory. Use other creative ways to prompt your memory by using visual cues to remind you.
7. Locational Memory. The first mnemonic device was used by recalling location. Have you been to a library and know where a certain section of books are but don't know the call numbers? Location helps you remember. Try to recall where you learned information to help your recall.
8. Get Necessary Sleep. Research has shown that information is "consolidated" in the memory during sleep. Try not to skimp on sleep. More than six hours is best.
9. Rhyme. You likely learned the alphabet based on this principle. Anything rhymed or sung is more easily remembered.
10. Relax. This relates to the first tip. If you are anxious, you will not be able to focus. If you are trying to remember something, force yourself to think of something different. Often it will "come to you" when you are not actively trying to recall a temporarily lost thought or memory.
By using these 10 tips, you will instantly improve your memory and ability for recollection. For more advanced methods of memory improvement, begin learning mnemonics. The Link System is the first mnemonic systems to learn and only takes minutes to dramatically improve your memory.
