Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could just remember new and important information quickly, easily and effortlessly? School, exams and work training would certainly become more pleasant and enjoyable. Having a super memory may sound like science fiction to you but it does exist. Moreover, you too can have it. All you will need to do is to:
- Train your brain
- Be more physically active
- Use all of your senses
- Learn how to effectively relax
Engage your other senses
Smells, songs and images can help us remember past things in great detail. Furthermore, they can even go beyond that as sensual stimulation can unlock not only factual memories but also emotional memories. That is why they are a powerful tool on which you should always rely when you are trying to learn new information. There are many ways in which you can do that. For example, you can try wearing a certain perfume when you study and then to wear it again during the examination. Also, have a notebook or even a whiteboard when you are trying to get the hang of a new piece of information. Write things down, organise them into tables and etc. That will help you retain the new knowledge.
Move and clear your mind
To keep your brain healthy and happy, exercise regularly. Also, consider taking up yoga as a new hobby as it is scientifically proven to have excellent effects on our memory. You can also try meditating. That will clear your brain and help you to be more focused.
A game of associations
If you want to retain the new information that you acquire, relate it to something that is already familiar to you. In that way, you will attach this new skill or knowledge to an already existing cluster of data instead of creating a brand new one.
Try these simple techniques for remembering and test the limits of your brain.
