5 Ways to Improve Your Memory

Is it possible to easily improve your memory? Try the following methods and see for yourself.

Imagine that your memory is like a notebook in which everything you experience in your life is written. You want to fill as many pages as possible and make new ones appear constantly.

Firstly, to find quickly what we are looking for in a notebook, it must be organized (about this at the end of the post).

Secondly, to make the contents of the notebook legible, some of its elements must be emphasized. How much an element (experience) is highlighted in a notebook depends on the strength of the emotional or physical stimulus that connects to the experience.

Thirdly, take care of your health to make your ink permanent. The ink begins to dry and ceases to be legible over time. To prevent this, apply ink again. You do it by thinking back to experience or experiencing it again.

Physical Activity

Physical activity is not only a great way to take care of your physical but also mental health. Our memories consolidate over time. What we experience before and after learning can influence what we remember.

Here are some not obvious examples to help you improve your memory:

  • Meditation.

  • Balance training.

  • Even just five minutes of exercise after learning.

You can combine these three ways that will improve your memory by doing yoga after learning.

Mental Exercise

Without training, the functionality of our muscles decreases. It's the same with our brains. To improve the functioning of the mind, including its ability to remember, you can do:

  • Improve your vocabulary.

  • Play brain training games.

  • Do activities that simultaneously engage more of your senses.

There are no results without action. Develop your mind every day of your life.

Caffeinated Coffee

We can influence the functioning of our memory not only through physical and mental exercises. Diet is an important element of our lives that has a significant impact on the functioning of our body, including the brain.

In order for the body to work at full capacity (including our brain), it must be supplied with appropriate food ingredients. If you would like to increase your knowledge about nutrition, know which products to choose from store shelves, but at the same time you do not want to give up your food delights, let me know in the comment below. An online course on this topic will appear in the near future.

Caffeine is one of the ingredients that can significantly help you improve the functioning of your memory. Coffee with caffeine in the morning has a positive effect on our ability to remember and is not associated with the stimulation of our body.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 supplementation not only increases the length and quality of sleep, which translates into better brain work but also affects the neural response which helps to improve memory.

Omega-3 fatty acids are another food ingredient you should look for when shopping in a grocery store.

Food rich in omega-3 fatty acids:

  • Mackerel.

  • Salmon.

  • Seabass.


Deprived of the necessary amount of sleep we are much more exposed to all kinds of illnesses. Sleep deficiency also negatively affects the functioning of our brain, so make sure you sleep well. Night rest allows us to consolidate new information obtained during the day and brings relaxation and reduce stress.

Organized Life

An organized life is a basic element that will improve the functioning of your memory and significantly improve the quality of life.
