Improving Your Memory Need Not Be Difficult

If you often find that you struggle more with your memory than you would strictly like to, you might also wonder how you can go about improving that. One of the biggest mistakes that people make is in thinking that memory cannot be altered, or that you are somehow stuck with the abilities you have for life. This is far from being the truth - in fact, research shows that your capacity to learn and remember actually improves with age, even until you are very old - as long as you are not affected by Alzheimer’s or dementia, that is. Knowing how to use your memory is something else altogether, as is knowing what to do to ensure your memory remains strong. Let’s take a look at both of those issues now, to see how you can improve your memory once and for all.

Start With The Body

The truth is that how good your memory is depends at least partly on how well you look after your body. If you want to be able to remember extremely well, then you need to make sure that you are looking after your physical health first and foremost. There are a number of things to bear in mind here. For a start, your memory will perform at its peak only if you remember to give your brain the sustenance it really needs. If you fail to eat properly, or to drink enough water, it is less likely that your memory will be able to improve. Similarly, you might want to consider taking a supplement such as shilajit. This has been proven to help with memory, among other things, so you might find that it is highly beneficial. Take care of the body first, and the rest will surely follow in good stead.

Understand Your Potential

One of the biggest things getting in the way of most people successfully remembering things well is the assumption that they can’t. If you find yourself feeling or believing that you won’t be able to improve your memory, then you might end up proving yourself right. With that in mind, it’s a good idea to not undermine yourself, but instead to come to terms with the reality of what your potential really is. Your brain is capable of storing any information you like, so long as you genuinely believe that you can. Make sure you start from this positive perspective if you want your memory to be as good as possible. It makes all the difference in the world.

Learn Some Basic Mnemonic Systems

The best way to get good at remembering a lot of information in one go is to come to grips with some basic mnemonic systems. These are surprisingly easy to pick up, and they are also hugely powerful once you get to use them well. One of the simplest that you can start with is known as the linking system. This is a way of remembering a list of items as a chain of events in your mind. For example, you can remember shopping lists easily by imagining a huge, brightly-colored loaf of bread and then see it interacting with the next thing on your list, in some imaginative way. You will be amazed at how effective this is, and it will give you a taste of what is really possible with your memory.

Beyond the linking system, you have a huge realm of mnemonic devices to use, from the so-called Roman Room system to the peg system. It is worth looking into these and practising them, as in doing so you will be able to remember much more information than you ever thought possible. Try out as many of these as you like and you will find that there are some that are more effective for you than others.

Keep At It

The trick to becoming good with memory is to actually keep at it. The more you practice, the more likely it is that your memory will be able to improve. You will probably find that you are able to remember much more than you had ever thought possible, but only if you really put the time and effort into practicing these things as much as you can. With enough hours under your belt, you will come out the other side with a much better memory than you ever thought you would have.

Having a good memory is a real blessing, so this is absolutely worth doing if you want to feel more alive in your mind than ever before. You will also be able to bring it out as a party trick for friends every now and then, which has its own kind of joys associated with it too.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
