What's the best way to increase memory power? I thing In the school and college life I had some memory power, but now I am feeling somewhat less ,why I dont know. what is the problem, why it is happening please tell me
There was a good article on yahoo a while ago (the reference is http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/beauty/10-ways-to-improve-your-memory-293658/print/;_ylt=AnTN4Zmwda9L7F80bhMP58dZbqU5 )
It lists 10 things you can do: 1. exercise, increases blood flow (also to brain) 2. (mostly for older people wanting to avoid Alzheimers: a glass of red wine a day) 3. stop stressing - apparently stress hormones shrink the area of the brain (hippocampus) that deals with remembering 4. cut down on sugar 5. but Indian spices like turmeric are good 6. take a 45-min. nap to refresh your brain 7. cut out soy products 8. talk with other people in person,not via the Net 9,.eat blueberries - lots! 10. believe it or not: light a scented candle - but not lavender.
I'm not making this up - it's all in that article.
gingko biloba is the greatest supplement for memory increase. I believe it increases the blood flow to the brain. I started using it with my Undergraduate degree and in thirty days I saw a difference.
Also, learn to manage your stress. Often times our stress causes a racing mind which obstructs the thought process and memory. Try meditation or deep relaxation if it is stress.
