Memory is one of the most valuable functions our brain has! So, it's no wonder that we're always on the lookout for ways to improve it! The following is a list of strategies that have worked for many people.
1) Use Organisation Techniques:
Organize information in a meaningful pattern that shows how each item relates to each other. This can be practised through graphs, tables and even lists.
2) Don’t Procrastinate:
The longer you wait to do something, the more difficult it will be to get it done. If you want your life to be less stressful and less demanding, then organize as soon as you can. Putting in the effort to get things done as soon as possible will lift the weight off of you from doing it later.
3) When struggling, Try to Reconstruct the Context:
When trying to recall events, you can suspend your struggles by reconstructing your imagination by remembering as much as you can of the situation in which the learning took place.
4) Sleep on It:
Sleep triggers changes in the brain that solidify memories which strengthen connections between brain cells and transferring information from one brain region to another. Researchers have tested this process by teaching people new skills and then scanning their brains after a period with or without sleep.
Remember A flexible memory system is best. The essential elements of successful memory work also include the following:
• Be organised. Information that is organised is easier to find.
• Be physical. Learning is an active process. Get all of your senses involved.
• Be clear. You can reduce the background noise that may interfere with the recall.
• Be smart. Intelligent application of memory techniques can save work.
