Is it really possible to improve your memory?

If you have ever found yourself forgetting what you were taught in school, or where you left your keys, then you probably wished your memory was a bit better.

Fortunately, there are plenty of things that you can do to improve your memory.

Before your next big exam, be sure to check out these tried, tested and approved techniques for improving memory. Try the following methods;

1 FOCUS YOUR ATTENTION:

Attention is one of the major components of memory. In order for information to move from your Short-term memory into your Long-term memory, you need to actively attend to this information. Try to study in a place free of distractions such as, Television, music and other diversions. Getting rid of distractions might be a challenge, especially if you are surrounded by noisy children, hence you need to set a short period of time to be alone.


2 GET SOME SLEEP

The human mind is not a machine, hence needs to be given some rest.

Researchers have long known that, sleep is important for memory and learning. Taking a nap after you learn something new can actually help you learn faster and remember. In fact, one study published in 2014 found that sleeping after learning new actually leads to physical changes in the brain.


3 ELABORATE AND REHEARSE

In order to recall information, you need to encode what you are studying into Long-term memory. One of the most effective encoding techniques is known as "Elaborative rehearsal"

An example of this technique would be to read the definition of a key term, study the definition of the term, and read a more detailed description of what that term means. After repeating this process a few times, you will probably notice that recalling the information is much easier.


I really hope this article was useful.
