A No-Brainer

How we learn and tricks for a better memory.      All of us can perceive the world visually, with our sense of hearing, or, by feeling.  However, we each tend to favor one over the others.  Are you a visual person?  You may think sometimes in terms of images.  (You probably enjoy my quirky photographs on the blog!).  Others may have a lot of trouble picturing something in their mind, recalling instructions given verbally, and so on.  "Learn your learning style.  Some people remember best what they see, some what they hear, still others what they experience.  Knowing your learning style helps your memory run at peak efficiency.  To enhance memory, try using all three learning modes.  Write it down.  Say it out loud.  Even act it out.  The more actively involved you are in the process, the more likely you are to remember."
"Recall of a...fact depends on the importance you assign to it.  When you're interested in something, you pay closer attention and your brain 'imprints' on cells that store memory...Pay active attention."                
Anxiety, multi-tasking, some "...medications, poor nutrition, or a sleep deficiency..." may interfere with your ability to concentrate.
  Reading, learning a musical instrument, and playing certain games are known to help sharpen your mind.  A good memory is a sign of high intelligence.  Your neurological health is worth your attention.
