Your memory does not improve without some effort on your part. These four tips take a little bit of focus and practice. However, the dividends outweigh the time required to make them habitual.
1. Let us say that you think, and always remind yourself, that you’re terrible at remembering names. Ask yourself:
A) Can you focus intently on the individual as they introduced themselves? Did you hear their name?
B) Can you repeat their title back to them?
C) Make a comment about the title. (It is just like a buddy’s name, or you never heard that title before, etc.)
D) Can you associate something memorable and ridiculous to their face that can allow you to remember their name? By way of instance, let us say that their title is Noseworthy. You may imagine a enormous nose on their face; it is worthy of being detected. The more ludicrous the institution is then the easier it is to recall.
E) Be brave, and present them to a colleague.
(Do not overdo it.)
E) Use their name when you depart.
2. Suppose that you are interested in buying food for supper. You’re great at composing lists; you’re terrible at leaving your lists at home, or misplacing them. Here’s a simple tip. Chunk your list of items into groups. The brain loves to chunk things and finds it much easier to recall.
3. How can you remember how to spell hard words? For this example, you might select the word”think”. Did you learn in college,”Never feel a LIE?”

4. Let’s say that you’re studying for an exam, and you need to memorize the periodic table of elements. Odds are that somebody has creatively develop a mnemonic for many things that you’re studying. Don’t attempt to reinvent the wheel.
