Easy Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Memory

September 16, 2014 3:41 pm

Bombarded by a seemingly infinite amount of obligations every day, most people fall victim to memory slips every now and then. And while you likely can't cut down on your daily duties, you can implement certain tips and tricks to help boost your memory. Here are a few:

1) Create a designated catch-all spot.
Position a small bowl or tray by your front door, and use it to hold your keys, wallet, phone, sunglasses, and other easily misplaced items. The trick here is to get into the habit of always placing said items into the catch-all as soon as you walk through the door. This way, you always know where to find those oft-misplaced items!

2) Shift into a lower gear.
Allow your brain a moment or two to catch up. For instance, instead of speeding through personal introductions, really make an effort to remember the person's name. You could make a point to repeat the name throughout your conversation, or if you exchange business cards, you could jot down some of the person's identifying factors onto the back.

3) Make a note.
Rely on sticky notes to provide visual reminders. Tape a note to your front door, alarm clock—wherever you're certain to notice the reminder.
