TIL: Better Memory

Memory tips by BigThink.com

  • Chronic stress is really bad for our memory. It make us tired and loose attention. Stress hormones mobilize your brain and body to respond, to fight, to flee, to react quickly - not to think.
  • Get enough sleep. If you don’t get enough sleep, your hippocampus might not have enough time to consolidate memories.
  • You remember when you pay attention. Don’t multitask.
  • Repetition is good.
  • Self testing. Recall information. Test yourself with flash cards.
