These 3 Hacks Will Make You Remember More -[..]will-make-you-remember-more-b30a3d9b3136

When trying to memorise new material, it’s easy to assume that the more work you put in, the better you will perform. Yet taking the occasional down time – to do literally nothing – may be exactly what you need. Just dim the lights, sit back, and enjoy 10-15 minutes of quiet contemplation, and you’ll find that your memory of the facts you have just learnt is far better than if you had attempted to use that moment more productively. -[..]effortless-way-to-strengthen-your-memory

This one is funny: "Distract yourself. You might feel like you’re being super productive and focused by sticking to your work, but you’re less likely to recall it later." -[..]-and-it-can-actually-be-fun-99a9c9b95d5b[..]proof-techniques-to-enhance-your-memory/[..]-make-you-smarter?ocid=global_future_rss

Drawing something makes it easier to remember than writing it down -[..]drawing-better-than-writting-memory-0432[..]s-your-memory-is-stranger-than-you-think

Frustrated at forgetting stuff? Some simple tricks could have dramatic positive effects.
1) Walk backwards
2) Do a drawing
3) Do some exercise, but get the timing right
4) Do nothing
5) Take a nap[..]-ways-you-could-become-a-memory-champion

In animals, weight training appeared to promote the creation of new neurons in the memory centers of the brain. -[..]w-weight-training-changes-the-brain.html

The method works something like this: you use a familiar environment, such as your home, and walk through the environment associating information (like words or digits) you want to remember with various objects or scenery. In order to recall the digits in the right order, you simply have to do a mental walk through your mind palace. In Lu’s case, he devised an intricate story, and assigned images such as a chair, a king or a horse to two-digit combinations of numbers ranging from “00” to “99.” -[..]e-but-theres-something-that-comes-close/

Most students take a laptop with them to lectures. But are there times when they might be better off taking a pad and pen? -[..]en-the-best-way-to-take-notes-is-by-hand

Use hand for memory -

“This was because using the device shifted the way that people used their memory to store high-importance versus low-importance information. When people had to remember by themselves, they used their memory capacity to remember the most important information. But when they could use the device, they saved high-importance information into the device and used their own memory for less important information instead,” Dr Gilbert explains. -[..]e/digital-devices-memory-aides-84634345/

The results were intriguing: those who were in the curious exploration mode performed better on the memory test. They correctly recognized more paintings and their associated values.
On the other hand, the group in the urgent mode proved better at remembering the paintings with the highest value compared to the people who were scouting the museum. Although they remembered fewer paintings, the total value of the paintings they could remember was about $230 higher than the collection of the 'curious thieves'. -[..]/?goal=0_3b5aad2288-3363a97685-242734313
