Examples of some of the tips, ideas and exercises in this book
Brain Workout (Chapter 1)
Leave your mobile phone in your overcoat pocket. And imagine your phone telephones you from your own mobile to say that it is in your coat pocket. Remember…the more ridiculous the story…the easier to remember!
Stress (Chapter 5)
Chronic stress can destroy brain cells and damage the memory area of the brain (hippocampus).
Tips for learning to manage stress: Learn to be assertive and express your feelings. Focus on one task at a time. Classify your “to do” tasks into low, medium and high priority. Spend 35-40 minutes a day doing Meditation. Do Yoga exercises.
Identify and Manage Health Issues (Chapter 8)
Pay attention to health issues such as heart disease and risk factors, hormone imbalance, diabetes, medications, anxiety, depression. These can cause memory loss and difficulty in concentrating.
Boosting Brain & Learning Power (Chapter 9)
Pay close attention. You cannot remember something that you have never learned, and you cannot learn something if you don’t pay close attention to it. Involve all your senses, if at all possible, when learning and try to relate the information to colors, textures, sounds, smells and tastes. Recount and link information to what you can already remember, thus forming a web of connected knowledge in your mind. For instance, form an acronym of what you want to remember:
Example of an acronym: Remember the colors of the spectrum with the acronym: ROY G. BIV (= red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet).
What Can We Conclude About Learning and Memory (Chapter 16)
Creating a Memory Palace is one excellent way to improve learning and memory.
One of the main reasons we often misplace car keys, TV remote, or cell phone is because we often store similar versions of these memories in our brain. With the Memory Palace, we create a precise scene where these objects are always at the same place. The Memory Palace is helpful because it makes you associate a particular object with a particular place in your house (your memory palace), and that doesn’t change.
It is to be noted that the Memory Palace is one of the oldest memory-enhancing techniques in existence. The technique was introduced to the ancient Romans and the world via Greek rhetorical treatises.
