Lynn Stern, Co-author of Improving your Memory
I have realised that I can remember anything I want to remember. The operative words here are ‘I want to’. Try and make a conscious decision when you want to remember something. Don’t blame your memory or your age……. we sometimes think we have forgotten something, when, in fact, we never really learned it in the first place.
The other benefit of the online program is that you should be using all your senses in the learning process.
We all know the formula that we learn:
20% of what we read
30% of what we hear
40% of what we see
50% of what we say
60% of what we do.
And a whopping 90% of what we see, hear, say and do……………
My memory tips for you today:
- Decide to remember;
- Be in the right state of mind and feel relaxed and confident about your ability to learn. In this way the parts of your brain that create memories, can actually work better.
- Be aware of your learning style and acquire new information in ways that suit you. Information is immediately more memorable for you.
- Use all of your senses when you learn. The more you can see it, hear it, say it and do it – the more you will retain it.
Happy learning, Jo
