Research has shown that playing video games increases the gray matter in your brain . This is more true for 3D video games than for 2D games. Playing the computer game Super Mario 64 , if you play for at least half an hour, will cause more gray matter in certain brain areas. These are the areas of the brain involved in planning, fine motor skills and memory. These skills improve this. Have fun in strengthening your brain.

9. Visualize what you are going to pick up before you go to the spot

If you move from one room to another, your short-term memory tends to reset, making you forget what you were going to do. This can be avoided by forming an image in your mind of what you are going to pick up before going to another room. This increases the chance to remember what you intended.Exactly the same applies to the digital world: Before you open a new browser, you might want to visualize what you are going to do. Even if you put something somewhere like your glasses, your phone or your keys, you can prevent yourself from losing it by focusing on the spot where you leave behind.Look forward to so that you will remember where your stuff is. And then you should not forget to do this.

A memory aid can be anything. You can think of a rhyme, a rhythm or alphabetical order. These are very useful when remembering shopping lists or lists that you must know for an exam. For example, you connect each item with a rhyme word, creating a rhyme. Or you make a song from your list. You can also take all the initials and make a word here. For example, in a shopping list for pears, pasta, eggs and olive oil, think about ‘poop’. Do you still have to put your container on the street, then remember ‘Joeperdepoep was sitting on the sidewalk’.

7. Use the power of music

Names and numbers forget people very quickly, but the lyrics of our favorite songs or songs we sang as children stay well in our heads. Music helps us to remember things with the help of beginning rhyme and rhythm. When learning a new language, it helps to use music videos with subtitles or karaoke. This is a special site Lyric Training , but YouTube is also very useful for this.

6. Learn the Chunking technique to increase your short-term memory

In our short term memory, only storage space is limited. Most people have four to seven different items. It is possible to exceed this limit by using the ‘chunking’ technique. This technique involves grouping a number of items into a larger whole. Especially when remembering numbers, this is a useful method. For example, if you have to remember the numbers 9, 22, 15, 80, 43, 51, 40 and 2 for a short time, this seems impossible. But if you try to remember 92215, 8043 and 51402, it’s probably possible.

5. Use the ‘Memory Palace’ Technique

At the ‘Memory Palace’ technique, you use a place (your memory palace) where you visualize the things you want to remember. You associate them with a place that reminds you alive. For example, if you make your home into your mental palace, remember your shopping list by imagining a large pack of milk at the front door. This greets you, you sweep your feet to a slice of chicken fillet and hanging sandwiches in a hallway in the hall. In the living room are eggs to jump to give you a big welcome hug.And so on. It seems strange, but once you’ve seen such a fantasy story in your mind, you’ll see it again for a second time.

4. Make what you want to remember as visually (and absurd) possible

Our memory consists of a verbal and a visual part. The visual part is much stronger in many people than verbal memory. Mental images are better stored and remembered than words. The bigger and more absurd the picture the better. In addition, it helps if you make a story using all your senses. If you look at the video above, you realize how big the difference between both types of memory is: How to memorize 10X faster.

It’s very annoying that we sometimes are so bad in remembering someone’s name. It is very simple to explain that our basic work memory does not always work optimally. But if we try to work optimally with our attention and make connections between the abstract name and the person, we will be better able to remember the name. You will then have to take the time for someone. You can do that by asking a question, for example, after you have suggested. In the meantime, repeat the name of the person in your head. You can introduce the person to someone else, so you’ll hear the name and repeat it in your mind. Make better eye contact, repeat the person’s name again at the end of the conversation and create a visual link between the name and the face of the new knowledge.

2. Make sure you live healthy and learn new skills

Unfortunately, memory becomes less good when we grow older. By living healthy, our memory will continue to do better. For example, you can try to reduce stress in your life and keep moving enough.Your brain can also function in optimal condition by learning new skills.

1. Take care and practice

A better memory comes from three things: motivation, observation and mechanics, also called MOM.Most of us forget the names of people because they are not good at their attention or maybe not even really interested in the other. As for the mechanics. Find a truck that works well for you and keep using it. For example, go to sleep the details and names of that day. This can strengthen your memory. Make notes if you read something that you want to remember. Start with confidence in your own memory instead of technology.
