I Just finished reading this article and wanted to highlight a few thing that I needed to practice doing more often!
Repeat, repeat, repeat. Whether it’s a name, phone number or series of events, repetition is arguably the best way to commit details to memory. You can either repeat them in written form or speak them out loud to yourself until they are learned by rote.
Relax. "When we can’t recall something, we get anxious, which makes the process even more difficult," says Koenig. "We think and remember better when we’re in a relaxed state. Take a few deep breaths and purposely relax your body, or repeat a calming mantra."
Learn something new. Absorbing new knowledge, skills and information works your "mind muscle" and helps to sharpen cognitive function.
