The brain is the most mysterious organ in the human body. Scientists and doctors still don’t know everything about how it functions and what it takes to heal it. What we do know is that brains are able to be trained. Anyone who says they have a bad memory simply hasn’t tried to improve it, because it is possible.

Improving brain function and memory is as simple as making a few lifestyle changes.

1- Exercise!

I’m sure you guessed it. Exercise can improve everything. Sleep quality, health, memory, you name it. During exercise, the brain releases proteins that improve neural health. This results in better brain function.

2- Brain Games

Games like Sudoku and riddles help improve brain health. But if you don’t enjoy the games they’ll just become another ‘task’ you need to do and you won’t really benefit from them. If brain games aren’t your thing you could always try learning another brain improvement skill.

3- Mnemonic Devices

Mnemonic devices are memory tools that can help you organize information into an easier to remember format. Mnemonic devices include imagining images, acronyms, or rhymes.

4- Sleep

The one thing all experts can agree on is that sleeping helps brain function just as much as eating and exercising well.

5- Write it Down

You’re more likely to remember something if you write it down yourself. Checklists, agendas, and class notes are all great examples of this. Also, studies suggest that you’re more likely to remember something written in a blue pen than a black one.

Anybody can improve their memory. All it takes is some dedication and willing ness to make small changes. Results won’t be immediate, but there will be results.
