How to Improve Your Memory
June 05, 2008
You use your memory every moment, consciously or not, as you perceive the world and interpret it. It’s no small wonder that this part of your brain would fall prey to inefficiency and failure, given the busy pace of life and the constant barrage of information. But you can help fine-tune your memory with some simple techniques.
Clear Your Mind
Some of your memory inefficiency is no doubt caused by the clutter in your head.
Meditation is a scientifically proven way to clear your mind and relieve stress. If you find your mind too cluttered, adopt a regular meditation habit and reap the health benefits that come with it.
Fuel Your Brain
A starving brain is just like a starving person: it won’t work well. One of the best things you can do for your memory is to get some physical exercise. The reason exercise works so well is that it pumps oxygen to your brain.
Eating well is also essential for proper brain function. Quit snacking on chips, and eat a variety of healthy foods geared toward your nutritional type. Get maximum nutrients so your neurons can fire and regenerate at will.
Some foods are more important than others when it comes to boosting your memory. Please see my previous article, The Top Five Foods to Increase Your Intelligence, for essential recommendations that can help clear away your mental fog and sharpen your quick-thinking skills.
There is nothing wrong with aiding your memory with a shopping list or a mnemonic. There are many techniques that fall under the heading of memory aids, ranging from simply writing a note to using more complex systems.
