The mind is a very complex thing and it has powers that you probably cannot fathom. However, if you are able to tap into your mind’s true potential, you will be surprised with what it is able to achieve. Most people are only able to use a portion of their minds; the rest is left untouched and wasted away. Upon realizing this, you should be compelled to find ways to improve the way in which you are able to access your memory. The human brain is much like an elastic band; it has potential that can be stretched and improved. As an individual, it should be your goal to find effective means to improve your memory.
You may have heard a lot of people say, “I have very bad memory”, and although this may be true, you should not stop and accept defeat. As previously mentioned, the mind has the capacity to be stretched like an elastic band, and you can always find a way to enhance your memory, if you think that it is not performing to your expectation and specific need.
Here are some memory enhancing tips that you can try:
Think positively. If you think and believe that you have poor memory then you will always have bad memory. Be a little optimistic and believe that you have good memory; initially you will be fooling yourself to believe so, but soon after, you will convince yourself and others, as well. Pay better attention to things. Sometimes the poorness of your memory could be related to your unfocused attention. When you are in class, or in a meeting, try your best to concentrate on the situation, so that you could give it your full attention. Make use of other good senses. You have to understand that you have 7 senses and if you are trying to remember something, you can make good use of your best asset, for better results. If you are a more visual person, you can use your visual memory. If you have good listening skills, then you can turn to audio files when you are doing some needed revision. Be creative and use your best asset properly. Relax your mind. If your mind is clouded with a lot of thoughts, you will have a difficult time concentrating on something. Your mind will be too preoccupied and you would not be able to process anything right. There are so many methods you can do that will effectively relax your mind. You can do some meditation so you can successfully channel your inner peace; you can do some yoga exercises so you can achieve to relax not only your mind but also your tensed body; and you can also choose to listen to music. Some tunes can create the perfect scenery that will allow your mind to relax. This will help you concentrate, so that you can enhance your memory. Release your anxiety. What are you so anxious about? Anxiety keeps a person from fully relaxing and if you are feeling anxious about something, you need to deal with it, at once so that it does not affect your performance.
