There are many ways you can improve your memory. With an enhanced memory, you will be able to go further and faster towards goal achievement than ever before. Below, we detail a number of ways you can improve your memory and enhance your mental functioning:
1. Take a multi-vitamin every day
A multi-vitamin will help your brain to stay in tip top condition. This is crucial to your mental success because it means that you are providing your brain with all the right nutrients and tools it needs. Multi-vitamins also help to counteract damage to brain cells, which can happen through what's called "free radicals". These free radicals damage your cells and can be stopped by multi-vitamins, which act as anti-oxidants.
A good multi-vitamin would have high levels of Vitamin's B and C. These vitamins play multiple roles in the body and will help your mind to feel clearer as well. You can get a good multi-vitamin for less than $10 at your local health store, and that can give you at least 1 month's supply.
2. Take Phosphatidyl Serine
Another effective supplement to improve memory is Phosphatidyl Serine. This supplement works to improve your learning ability and memory, by targeting vital processes in the brain.
3. Take Ginkgo Biloba
To improve your short term memory, Ginkgo Biloba is the way to go. This herbal supplement allows more blood flow to the brain. This means more oxygen and nutrients for your brain to operate at top condition. You shouldn't take Ginkgo Biloba if you are over 40 years of age though.
Again, this and any other supplement is available from your local health store.
4. Take Regular Exercise
Regular exercise has been shown to improve memory. This happens because exercise releases hormones and changes the chemical processes which happen in the brain. This means that you will have more effective mental functioning than previously. It also helps to promote lung capacity and your cardiovascular system, meaning enhanced oxygen and nutrient transport to the brain.
All in all, that means you have much greater resources for your brain. Your brain will be in better condition, and you will have a much better memory. For exercise, you are best of using hard cardio vascular training like running/jogging, cycling, swimming or rowing. All of these will get your heart rate pumping extremely high and lead to the maximum benefit for both body and brain.
5. Do Memory Exercises
A good memory exercise is the DVH technique, found in The Complete Guide To Genius (available from our homepage). This teaches you how to use both shapes, color and numbers in improving your memory. By using multiple brain functions together, you can improve your memory.
6. Improve Memory By Association
A common and well-known technique to improve memory is through association. Association here means associating images and sequences with the things you want to memorise. For example, if you wanted to memorise a long sequence of colors, you could create a scene of images in your mind, by which each object in the image is the color you want to remember. So in a simple example, say you wanted to memorise the sequence blue, red and yellow. In your mind you could imagine a blue car driving on a red road and towards the sunset in the distance which is yellow. This mental imagery allows you to see things from a much more comprehensive perspective than just using words as your memorisation tool on its own.
