Some have the memory of an elephant they say while others compete with the goldfish but who said that in life we should rest with what we have when and as long as we have the ability to change it? You do! So in short, find the very simple tips you need to improve a valuable quality that we humans possess.
It is of major importance to be able to rest as much as you should, as sleep itself helps to create order between your daily experiences and the memories you create, and of course it strengthens episodic memories, i.e. those that are directly related to place and time.
Take care of your diet
It has been known for decades that cognitive function is directly affected by what we feed our “temple”. Choose more plant-based foods, avoiding red meat and dairy, which in itself does not automatically mean cutting out anything related to the aforementioned or sugar. Just make sure to reduce them as much as possible.
Relax and deal with stress
If you knew to what extent anxiety and stress affect your memory you would look at the “enemy” with a different, less fleeting eye. Adrenaline is released from the brain which does make you keep your eyes open and pay more attention, but at the same time cortisol is released more slowly which disturbs the balance of your memories.
