How to Improve Your Memory – Popular First Steps
As the National Memory Champion for 2009 and 2010 for memorizing a Deck of Cards and having spoken in 30 countries in the last 20 years on memory I see hundreds of new ways to Improve memory. Here is an exert from a article off ArticleBase.com. I included some of the short articles to help show other ways to improve your memory.
You are starting to become forgetful but you feel you are still too young for that. Don’t kid yourself people are forgetful at all ages. It is a natural phenomenon. You go into a room and stand there because you cannot remember what you went in there for. This happens most often because when you wanted something you headed for where you would find it but, you just did not concentrate on what you wanted. So here you are staring into space and wondering. This is not memory loss or the beginning of a disease it is just poor concentration. Although we all do suffer occasional memory loss. Did you ever see someone on the street or in a store and you know that person but just cannot remember their name until you have exchanged niceties and then you either remember or have to ask someone when you get home? This too is common and there are ways to remember names. Some people remember addresses and phone numbers but not names and vise versa. At this point you want to know how to improve your memory.
How to improve your memory is as simple as exercising your brain. Try playing games such as word games or crosswords. In a word game you will remember words you no longer use and have truly forgotten. Do jig saw puzzles to improve hand eye coordination. Play a game with your brain by doing something different from your ordinary routine such as eating: if you are right handed spend a day eating with your left hand. It will wake up your brain and all the muscles you haven’t used in a long time. Just as when we do not exercise our bodies our muscles tend to go to sleep because they are not needed, our brain too slows down many functions because we just don’t use them. Remember the old adage “use it or lose it?” It applies here. As adults we tend to get in a rut with our day-to-day routine and then worry because we cannot remember.
