Want to boost your brain’s performance and improve your memory? Good news: with a few simple habits, it’s possible and in just a few days!
Here are 8 things you can do every day to think faster and maintain your memory:
This is definitely the best thing to do because sleeping consolidates our memory and eliminates the waste accumulated during the day. So make sure you get at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night to be in great shape the next day and remember everything!
Sport is excellent for boosting brain performance and improving memory, among other things because physical activity promotes better blood circulation and oxygenation of the brain.
If you have memory problems, it may be because of your stress, which increases cortisol production and may prevent long-term memory storage. So remember to follow these tips to reduce stress and do everything you can to relax!
LEARN NEW THINGS EVERY DAY
Always keep 5 minutes a day to read or learn something new. Not only will this be fun, it will also stimulate your brain.
READ AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE
Reading allows you to enrich your vocabulary, improve your spelling and syntax, and better record information because it uses your visual memory.
BREAK THE ROUTINE
The brain loves to go on autopilot. To stimulate it, do everything you can to break the routine and do new things every day: try a new dish, travel, try a new sport or change your route to work. Anything new will help you improve your memory.
APPEAL TO YOUR IMMEDIATE MEMORY
As soon as you have a few minutes, keep your memory alive by remembering the highlights of your day, the outfit you wore the night before or the day before, or what you ate for breakfast.
PLAY GAMES THAT KEEP YOUR MEMORY ALIVE
Scrabble, crosswords, sudokus, memory or logic games, there are many of them. Just choose one that entertains you and do a little bit every day.
If you really have a bad memory, you can follow these tips to improve it. And don’t worry: if you still have a bad memory, it may be a sign that you’re very smart!
