HOW CAN WE IMPROVE OUR MEMORY?
HERE ARE FANTASTIC AND PRACTICAL ADVICE FOR MEMORY BRAIN IMPROVEMENT
Scene: Edward tells you to please call company X and tell him this and that, you say ok, I’m doing it right now.
You are going home or you end the call or if you received your text message. And then after hours or the next day.
Edward calls or sends a message asking if the call was made, and you say “I forgot.”
Scene 2: He is going to go shopping for only three things and when he goes shopping for two of the three, he forgot.
Scene 3: They just told you a person’s name and only a few minutes later they have to ask again, And what is your name? Again I forget.
This has indeed happened too many of us, but to some much more than others, and we could chronically say some.
“But if my memory is wonderful,” they will ask, “why do I forget things? Why do I often lose items?
Why do I go to a store and forget what I came for? Worse, why does it cost me so much?” remember names, not to mention phone numbers and appointments?
These are common concerns. However, his memory is much better than he imagines and can be improved.
Why do we forget?
God created us with a wonderful ability to remember.
Why do our memories seem to fail us sometimes?
I have always said that everything is a matter of putting INTEREST in things.
Think about this, if you can remember things that happened to you 20 or more years ago, that means that it is unnecessary that the memory is bad, it is YOURSELF even if it sounds contradictory.
For example, The famous conductor Arturo Toscanini conducted entire symphonies from memory. Business magnate Charles Schwab could remember the names of 8,000 employees.
But were his memories equally extensive on topics outside his areas of personal interest?
Not likely. No matter how good your memory is, it will be extremely difficult for you to learn and remember things that don’t interest you.
Of course, many times what you are not interested in or worse yet that you do not want to have in your memory are shocking bad things that have happened to us is like the virus in a computer.
We want to permanently remove it and although we eliminate some of the viruses, it still affects memory and the functioning of oneself in your life.
And I can add to that, that it is worth remembering a name if I will not remember to pay a bill on time and then I end up paying a fine or interest, or a vital medicine for one’s health?
And there are other factors such as change of location, diet, emotional problems, and disorders,
Or it could be a chemical problem of the brain, but we are going to see it from the point of view that it is not any of those.
As we mentioned before, it is not practical or necessary to remember thousands of things, much less if it is nothing that affects one’s life or routine.
Now, remember something very important in using our memory, especially when someone speaks to us or instructs how we could compare it in school. And it is:
PAYING ATTENTION IS NOT THE SAME AS HEARING.
I think it is easy to hear noises or murmurs or your mind wandering or thinking about other matters while the person is saying something to you.
That’s why I said earlier is not the memory is oneself. It is not the computer and its memory is like using it wisely.
HOW TO REMEMBER THEN?
1) -Take a few minutes not seconds to remember by giving special attention to the matter.
Suppose you need to make an important phone call tonight. If you do more than just make a quick mental note of this need, you will probably forget it.
So stop and think about this phone call you plan to make.
Jeff Budworth’s Instant Recall—Tapping Your Hidden Memory Power book recommends taking “minutes, not seconds”
To record important information into memory.
Tell yourself that you intend to remember to make this call.
Having paid special attention to this matter, you are not likely to forget it.
2) -Clarify your information.
A computer cannot accurately retrieve data unless something has entered correctly it to get started.
Much of the same is true of our memories.
Consider, for example, the question of learning names.
Dr. Bruno Furst points out in his book Stop Forgetting:
“If we do not get the name clearly and precisely, we cannot even speak of remembering or forgetting.
We cannot remember or forget something we never knew.
Therefore, our first step should be to get the name so that there is no doubt as to its pronunciation or spelling. ”
If someone mutters your name when they introduce it to you, feel free to ask the person to repeat it. Ask how it is spelled.
Try to imagine what you are trying to remember. Are there any tasks that you should not forget? Then imagine yourself doing it.
The more details you add to this mental image, the more easily you will remember it.
Visualization can also help you form associations between seemingly unrelated things.
Imagine, for example, that you must remember to buy milk and toothpaste. You can try to create a mental image of a cow that brushes its teeth.
This is not an image you are likely to forget, try as you can!
Saying to himself out loud, “I should call John tonight,” is another way to help him remember to do it.
Do you often forget if you closed the door or turned off the oven? Dr. James D. Weinland’s How to Improve Your Memory book says.
“The problem can usually be solved by verbalizing tasks as we do them. . .
When you turn the clock and set the alarm, say, “I have wound the clock and set the alarm.” When you close the door, say to yourself, “I have closed the door.” but it can help you remember.
To this I can add the following DO NOT POST GATE THINGS, IF YOU CAN DO IT IMMEDIATELY DO IT, THE WORST ERROR IS TO LEAVE THINGS FOR THEN AS THEY ARE ACCUMULATING.
And then instead of the memory, it becomes a lack of time and resources adding another problem more.
5) -Develop an interest in your topic
You may not be naturally drawn to a topic, but by remembering the reasons why you need to learn the information and the consequences of not remembering it, learning will be easier.
For example; He loves to pay phone, rent, light loans, or others. I don’t think you have to answer that, but if you constantly forget or postpone that, everything will be more expensive or worse, adversely affecting you.
Suppose you need to bring several items to work tomorrow morning. By looking at the exact number of items to carry, you will be less likely to leave any.
If you need to buy multiple items from a food store, try sorting them into categories.
You could, for example, decide that you need to buy three dairy products, two meat products, and two miscellaneous items.
Organizing things this way helps you pay more attention. Keep a notepad and calendar and check it constantly throughout the day whenever you can.
8) -Use it and check it
You will always remember your name, the alphabet, or how to use a fork or pencil.
Why? Because you have repeatedly used this knowledge. Frequent use reinforces a memory, making it easier to remember.
Occasionally mentally review or use the things you want to remember.
After being introduced to someone, try using their name multiple times. Or, having learned some recent information, try to include it in your conversations, being careful not to sound like you’re showing off.
The value of Remembering
“But why go to all this trouble?” I might ask. “Wouldn’t it be easier to just write things down?”
Calendars, lists, alarm clocks, written notes for you – all of this has a useful purpose.
However, sometimes it just isn’t practical to write things down, like when you meet people in a social setting.
And when your well-thought-out shopping list needs revision, a pencil is often not helpful. Also, lists can be easily lost.
What if you forget to check your calendar? Therefore, training your memory is a worthwhile effort.
The more you practice, the less effort memory will require. You will soon discover that you would rather memorize things than write them.
However, don’t be afraid that you will somehow mess up your mind and make it less effective or creative.
Mind, like a muscle, becomes stronger and more effective in use.
Dr. Joan Minninger says: “Most people think of long-term memory as a large drawer in the dresser that needs to be emptied periodically to make room for new things.
Incorrect. There are no known limits to memory storage. You can learn and remember new things all your life. “
Dr. Furst similarly points out that “it would be a fallacy to think that to properly care for our brain cells we must spare them all effort and preserve them unused.
Just the opposite is true. “Some, like Harry Lorayne, co-author of The Memory Book, even believe that” memory can improve as they get older. “
They do not limit us as the memory of a computer has limits, and we must clean it. We have unlimited information or data, whether we remember everything.
Now it is interesting that our brain is said to be like a bone muscle, we must give it exercises.
so common sense tells you and Me that there are practical ways outside of what we have already mentioned.
1) -Read constantly different topics and if they can be important and productive matters much better.
Exercise is not only a matter of health but also of effectiveness and having more capacity and maturity.
2) -Writing things one likes and one is passionate about not only helps oneself but for others and that remains in his memory as something POSITIVE.
So before saying it I have a poor memory because I think that after reading this and you and I know that this is wrong.
