					Useful Tips For Improving Your Memory
Memory Improvement can improve your life.
How many times have you been driving home and suddenly had that sinking
feeling that you have forgotten something. You walk in the door and you
husband or wife greets you lovingly and hands you your anniversary
present. It's at that point that you realize another year has gone by and
you have totally forgotten your anniversary again. If you have had this
experience before then it's time for you to look at making an improvement
to your memory. By following a few easy training techniques it will be
easy for you to make a dramatic improvement to your memory and never have
to worry again about forgetting things.
There are several different categories for your memory. These include
remembering dates and events, names and faces, factual information and
lists. In each of these areas there are different techniques and tools
that you can use for your memory improvement.
If your one of these people that can never remember somebodies name there
are several techniques that you can use. The most commonly used one by
people around the world is to associate a rhyme with their name. For
example, if your out at a party and get introduced to a new person named
Tony. The first thing you want to do is make sure you repeat their name
once or twice in conversation. “Hi Tony, pleased to meet you.” This will
help to confirm their name in your short term memory.
To help lock this name into your long term memory the next thing you do
is associate it with a rhyme of some sort. e.g. Tony the pony. Now every
time you see that person for the rest of the night repeat to yourself in
your mind “tony the pony” and start to imagine that person as a pony.
Once you have got this locked into your mind it's virtually impossible to
forget. Improvement of your memory really is that simple.
The other great thing to do is try to match your rhyme to a common
feature about their appearance. By doing this it will help to recognize
them in the future as well.
Another common technique for the improvement of your memory when it comes
to lists is to make a word a saying/sentence or just remember the first
letters of the list. By doing this it will help to jog your memory to
exactly what was on the list. For example if you had to go to the shop
and remember 5 items you could do it like follows.




Have a look at your list and in this case we can re-arrange it to be.
B read

L ollies

A pples

C hocolate
K etchup
Now from the first letters in this case it spells Black. Now all you have
to do is remember Black and when you get to the supermarket it will help
you to know there were 5 things and they started with B L A C K
Once you learn all these easy little memory improvement tools you'll be
able to have a fantastic memory in virtually no time at all.
