The Secret Of How To Remember Things In Your Daily Life
Have you ever completely forgotten names and faces of people? Well, now Yahoo can show you how to start remembering faces, lists, where you put your car keys and why you walked into a room.
Barry Reitman is the creator of the memory training system called “Memory Shock". His method is based on two factors: focus and picture.
You have to focus on what you want to remember and that actually helps develop your natural memory.
“You have to focus on what you want to remember and that actually helps develop your natural memory.” Reitman tells Yahoo Health. “Then, picturing is where it gets wacky, and the wackier you visualize something, the easier it is to remember.”
When it comes to remembering faces and names, you should come up with a word or pick a facial feature and visualize that image on the person's face. “If you picture something in an outrageous way, like extra-tiny or huge or silly, it makes you remember,” says Reitman. “You will now see that person’s name when you see their face.”
Losing your phone or your car keys is always a horrible experience but by using our visual memory, we might be able to stop those panicked moments. You want to start by picturing your keys or phone in an odd situation. For example, imagine dropping your keys in a glass of milk and watching the milk splatter.
By doing so, it can force your brain to focus on where you put your keys and be able to picture them. It works for any lost object. When you put the item down, visualize it doing something unusual in that spot and it will help jog your memory. No more freak outs!
