Bad memory: what to do and how to improve?
Many people think that memory impairments are peculiaronly the elderly, and young people learn and remember information well and quickly. It used to be so, but, given the high pace of modern life, the situation has changed a little. Overstrain and stress at work lead to the fact that many young people have reduced mental capacity. The consequence of this process is a bad memory. What should I do if this problem occurs? We'll talk about this later, and now a few words about the symptoms of this "disease".
How do you know if you have a bad memory?What to do if it has worsened, read below. In the meantime, try to return to the past. Do you remember the main events of the past week? Can you say on the way to work with absolute certainty that you closed the door and turned off the iron? If you answered negatively, then you have some memory problems. But do not panic. Any problem has a solution.
So, you have a bad memory. What should I do in order to fix this? Use the tips below.
1. Move on
Go in for sports, move.Exercises and walks have a positive effect on the functioning of the brain. But this does not mean that you have to be killed in the gym every day. Stay on your favorite sport and plan loads, focusing on the current level of your physical shape. After several weeks of active training, you will not be wondering: "I have a bad memory. What to do?"
2. Do not be fidgety
Learning is inefficient and does not yield results. Without understanding the meaning, information is remembered only up to a certain point and quickly forgotten.
Do not repeat the information you read 20 times. Do this once a day for a week and best before bedtime.
4. Turn on the imagination
People who remember long numbers havedeveloped imagination. They represent figures in the form of inanimate objects, animals and plants. So use your imagination. Learn to attach information to certain images, and you will forget what a bad memory is. What should I do to learn the text? Use also images. If the text is very large, then tie the image to each paragraph.
5. Focus on memorizing
Concentrate on this process. Draw parallels, listen, reflect, think. The more associations, thoughts and feelings are fixed for information, the better it will be remembered.
6. Eat right
To maintain high brain activity,eat small meals 4-5 times a day. With this mode, the glucose level in the body will not fall. And, as you know, glucose is the main source of energy for the brain.
For example, if you take a profession such asa businessman, then its owner, in principle, should not have a bad memory. What if this is so? You can hire an assistant who will remember everything for him. But it's much better to use the method of associations. It will help both with new acquaintances (to remember a person, you need to associate it with a certain person), and when memorizing business-relevant information.
