Memory is a vital part of our every day lives, but many people don’t know how to use their memory to its full potential. This guide will give you some advice on how to improve your memory.

Step 1:

Pay attention

When you decide that you want to remember something, it becomes the object of your focus – you pay ATTENTION to it. This allows you to imprint the memory onto your brain.

Step 2:

Association

Make a picture in your mind of the item that you want to remember.
Link the piece of information you want to recall to something permanent or something that you know very well.

Step 3:

Practice

Let’s imagine that you want to remember to post a letter on the way to work. First, you DECIDE to remember that letter. Next you make a picture in your mind of that letter. Link it to something that you will come across before you leave for work, for example, see in your mind’s eye your inside door handle and picture the letter being attached to your door handle. These three principles can be used to remember almost anything, whether it is a person’s name, a shuffled deck of cards or a list of tasks.

Step 4:

Recap

To summarise, the three steps to improve your memory are:
1.Decide to remember
2. Use your creativity and link the thing you want to remember to something you already know
3. Practice.
