Improve memory

Memory plays an important part in our live .We often forget things.Forgetting things can loss our credibility especially in working world and if you`re a boss.

Short-term memory refers to the capacity for holding a small amount of information in mind in an active, readily available state for a short period of time. The duration of short-term memory is about 20 seconds. Estimates of the capacity of short-term memory vary – from about 3 or 4 elements (i.e., words, digits, or letters) to about 9 elements

Long-term memory
is memory that can last as little as a few days or as long as decades.

Memory is affected by many factors such as:
Chemical or toxic exposure
Overall brain health
Medication side effects

Trust and be confident that you have a good memory

An active social life
Be a social butterfly. One study found that people who socialize regularly do far better on memory tests than their less outgoing counterparts, since participating in conversations exercises the brain.

Exercise.Physical activity rushes oxygen to the brain and builds new cells in the brain region linked to memory.

Take a nap Research has found that people who squeeze in a catnap during the day retain twice as much of the information they learned that day as those who don’t.

Organize your thoughts.By organizing your though ,it will be clearer to you of what to think and remember

Learn to use Mnemonics Mnemonic are clues of any kind that help us remember something, usually by causing us to associate the information we want to remember with a visual image, a sentence, or a word.

Use all your senses.
The more senses you use when you learn something, the more of your brain will be involved in retaining the memory. For example, odors are famous for conjuring memories from the distant past, especially those with strong emotional content, such as visits to a cookie-baking grandparent.

Read ,Draw and write
Widen the brain regions involved in learning by reading aloud, drawing a picture, or writing down the information you want to learn (even if you never look back at your notes). Just forming a visual image of something makes it easier to remember and understand; it forces you to make the information more precise.

Repeat things you need to learn. The more times you hear, see, or think about something, the more surely you’ll remember it

Do new things and challenger yourself
Engaging in activities that require you to concentrate and tax your memory will help you maintain skills as you age. Discuss books, do crossword puzzles, sudoku, try new recipes, travel, and undertake projects or hobbies that require skills you aren’t familiar or comfortable with. Again, challenge all of your senses as you venture into the unfamiliar: Try to guess the ingredients in a restaurant dish; give sculpting or ceramics a try; sample different types of music.

If you’re trying to memorize something, do it on an empty stomach. The hormone that improves memory is highest when the stomach is empty.

Move your eyes
Moving your eyes side to side for 30 seconds every morning can improve memory by ten percent. How? It gets the two sides of the brain working in harmony.
