As you know, the older we get, the worse our memory seems to become. You may feel that you start forgetting things constantly. Just read this article as it contains some tips to get a more powerful memory.
First, to have eager enthusiasm and interest with something you want to memorize. After all, it is much easier to memorize the name of your favourite band than the ones that you do not care, right?
You may also do it a bit further. For instance, link an interesting picture to what you intend to maintain in mind. This is a great technique that has been used by many people.
For example, assume that you want to memorize some tasks that need to be accomplished tomorrow, like phoning a client, buying a ticket and going to a dentist. All you need to do is to imagine a picture of, let us say, a funny figure who is talking to his doctor with a cellphone in his hand and a ticket in his pocket.
You can also create a simple song depicting all the things you have to remember. If you do this correctly you certainly will not forget all of them.
In case you are dealing with something that you really hate, try to focus on the outcomes you will get from it. Doing this, you will be tempted to focus on what you need to keep in your memory.
Do not forget also to get the best chance of remembering something. If possible, make sure your surroundings are as quiet and distraction-free as possible.
If you practice these techniques often enough, your ability to memorize things will get improved fast. The more you exercise your memory, the more enduring it will become. Just like most other things in this world, "practice makes perfect".
