Want to have a better memory and amaze everyone including yourself?
Who Else Wants To Improve Their Memory
So That They Can Instantly Recall Information,
Pass Their Exams With Ease, Get Promoted Fast
And Get The Respect From Their Peers?”
Here’s Your Opportunity To Get A Sharp Memory
And Increase Your Chances Of Success
Don’t pull out your hair every time you forget something.
A lot of people have bad memories and are embarrassed by it. You’re not alone.
But did you know that you have the ability within you to improve your memory? You can remember names, to-do lists, project tasks, exam material and anniversary dates with ease.
All you need is to know how to unleash that goldmine of yours – the capability to remember things upon request!
Here’s an interesting story...
A man was in his 2nd year studying for his University Degree. It’s the 3rd consecutive year for him. He has failed his year 2 year exams twice already.
While being laughed at behind his back from his former classmates, this 31 year old man continued to study hard – he always has.
He spends an enormous amount of time studying. It affected his social life but he was keen to pass.
No matter how hard he studied and revised the material, he just couldn’t seem to remember enough facts for him to pass the exams.
The thought of suicide was not far away. That was how much it frustrated him.
One day by chance, the man was speaking to a woman who has done very well in her exams and was in her final year.
She always seemed happy and relaxed. She had time to go out with friends, read science fiction (which was her hobby) and most important of all, she passed with flying colors with every exam or test she took.
The man told her about his problems and then asked her how she did it.
She told him that it was because she had a good memory! She studied on how to get a powerful memory which helped her studies and her personal life.
After that mind opening conversation, the man started to research and study books on improving his memory.
A year and a bit later, he graduated from University and went on to become a successful medical doctor.
His life totally changed just by improving his memory!
Is It possible For Anyone To
Have A Good Memory?
By now you'll be wondering, what sort of techniques the man studied to turn his life around and whether you can also get the same results. The answer is yes and no.
Yes, you can get the same results if you take time to study and practice the techniques consistently. Your memory can improve and you'll achieve amazing things which you never thought was possible before.
No, you will not get the same results if you just read the methods and not practice them. Reading without action is meaningless. To be Con'td

Having a good memory means being able to recall information easily which you have experienced in the past. There are 2 types of memory: Long-term and short-term.
Short-term memory is the ability to store information which occurred a few minutes or even a few seconds ago.
For example, when you phone the operator for a company’s telephone number, you’ll be able to remember and dial the number right away. After 1 or 2 minutes, you’ll completely forget about the number.
Long-term memory is the ability to store information in your brain for a longer period of time. This is information which you’ve made an effort to remember for a long time.
Another type of long-term memory is when something repeats itself several times so that you remember it permanently.
Or when something shocking, positive or negative occurs that stimulated your emotions quite a bit.
For example, if someone pointed a gun to your head, it’ll be impossible to forget the incident.
This step by step guide is to help you improve your short-term and long-term memory. If you’re physically and mentally fit, then it’s a matter of training yourself to get the effective memory you want.
The steps are laid out over a span of 7 days where you’ll begin to have a much better memory if you take action and practice the steps.
Step 1 – Understanding A Bit More About Memory
Some people are born with a good memory. "I have a daughter and son who have totally different characters.
My wife and I spend a lot more time with our daughter’s studies. She needs to work harder than others when it comes to spelling tests, examinations etc…
My son on the other hand, needs far less attention from my wife and I compared to our daughter. The reason is, he naturally has a good memory.
He can remember things which we teach him only once. He even remembers them a few months later."
If you understand this situation or have actually experienced this yourself, don’t despair. It is possible to train yourself and get a good memory.
It involves changing some of your habits, doing some brain exercises and following some techniques. You will see improvement. That’s a guarantee.
There are 3 main areas which you can improve on to make a difference:
- Physical Exercise
- Brain Exercise
- Memory Techniques
|Re: Secrets To Improving Your Memory In 7 Days by Icee20: 10:59am On Jul 01, 2012|
Step 2 - Basic Foundation
Your brain needs exercise. Just like your body, the more you exercise your brain, the fitter it becomes.
Memory loss that occurs in old age are normally from diseases, which we cannot do much about, and also from lack of exercise for the brain.
If you stop using your brain, then you’ll lose its effectiveness which will eventually give you a poor memory.
The first thing to start having a good memory is to get good sleep and to exercise your body. This is the basic foundation necessary for having an effective memory.
Get 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep and do some exercise such as jogging for 30 minutes regularly.
When you get sufficient sleep, your mind is more alert. When you’re sleepy, you tend to ignore things and don’t care about them.
You’ll pay less attention to detail and therefore it’s obvious you won’t remember things.
With good physical exercise, your body will be stronger and you’ll have more energy throughout the day to do work. You can also think without getting tired easily.
Having a fit body together with good sleep is essential. Think of the times when you were energetic throughout the whole day. What happened?
When we’re full of energy, it’s much easier to read, play soccer and wanting to learn more things.
When we’re tired, we just want to lie on the couch and watch television. Take a note when you’re extremely tired and also when you feel very energetic. Notice the difference in the way you act and feel.
When we exercise, we actually provide more oxygen to the brain cells and more blood flows to the brain. This helps in removing waste from your brain and makes your brain cells healthy.
You don’t need to drastically change your lifestyle for a good memory. Just get sufficient sleep and exercise every two days for 30 minutes. This will benefit your memory and make you live longer.
Step 3 – Watch what you eat
Your diet affects how your brain performs and it will perform well with a steady supply of glucose.
Eating a healthy breakfast will do wonders to kick-start your brain. Everyone says that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and they’re 100% right. Spend 15 minutes to prepare and eat a healthy breakfast. It’s time worth spending.
As we grow old, we start to have less healthy brain cells, and as the brain cells get older they sometimes stop communicating with each other.
This slows down processes such as thinking, short-term memory retrieval and generating new brain cells.
Taking anti-oxidants can help.
Good sources of anti-oxidants are:
Vitamin A – Carrots, spinach
Vitamin C – Kiwi fruit, strawberries, tomatoes
Vitamin E – Nuts, seeds, vegetable oil
You should avoid fatty foods as they clog up the arteries and block oxygen to the body and brain.
It’s proven that eating fish is very good for the brain. Fish contains DHA and Omega-3 fatty acids which both help the brain to operate at its peak.
We all love our food and find it very hard to adjust our eating habits. I’m not asking you to make a 180 degrees change. Just gradually change what you eat and remind yourself to eat more of what is healthy.
Steps 1 – 3 are the basic things you need to know so that you understand how to develop a good memory. Start making a schedule on how you plan to eat and exercise, and take action now.
Till Next I come, we will Begin with DAY 2; Step 4 – Brain Exercise 1
|Re: Secrets To Improving Your Memory In 7 Days by Icee20: 11:00am On Jul 01, 2012|
Step 4 – Brain Exercise 1
The first exercise you can do to train your brain and memory is to activate the brain’s learning process.
Use your brain as often as possible. When you learn something, your brain is being trained and new cells are made.
You’re keeping your brain healthy. The more you work your brain, the healthier it becomes.
To activate the learning process, do things which you don’t normally do. Here are a list of tasks which you can do regularly.
1. Cross your arms but differently. If your right arm is normally on top when you cross your arms, change it so that your left arm is on top.
2. Use your other hand when you’re using your computer’s mouse. This will involve switching the right and left button clicks.
3. When you take out your wallet or purse, use your other hand to take out the money.
4. When you kick a ball, use your other leg. We all have a dominant leg when we dribble with the ball – stop and use your other leg.
5. When you have time, start writing with your other hand. Write a few sentences for about 10 minutes.
6. In a safe environment, close your eyes and move around the house for 20 minutes. Do chores such as cleaning the window, getting dressed, going to the toilet etc...
Do you know why you need to do these exercises? They’re making you break your habits. The things you normally do are becoming a habit. They don’t require much thinking from your brain.
By switching things around, your brain will find these process new and you will feel uncomfortable.
Your brain is therefore learning and you’re giving it exercise. You’ll immediately find that you need to pay more attention to what you’re doing.
You can also listen to your MP3 and at the same time, iron your clothes, brush your teeth, tie your shoelaces etc…
The MP3 music is distracting you from your task. Your brain will therefore need to concentrate more.
Practice doing these exercises throughout the day. Also plan ahead on which exercises to do for the whole week.
Step 5 – Brain Exercise 2
Another kind of exercise you need to focus on is making your brain think. Apart from learning new tasks, your brain also needs to think, focus and find solutions to problems.
Here are some exercises, or shall I call them habits, which I highly recommend you to do regularly.
1. Play Chess
This is a fascinating game. Each game of chess is different and requires concentration. It also improves your patience.
Find time to play chess at least twice a week. Play it with your family or even online with your computer.
Chess involves the player thinking ahead several moves and enables them to focus hard on the task. This is especially good for children to develop their brain.
2. Play Scrabble
Like chess, Scrabble is very good for the brain as the players need to concentrate very hard on words which they know.
It makes them recall whatever word they saw previously in magazines or books. They will learn new words every now and then when playing Scrabble. It gives the brain a good workout.
3. Read and learn
Reading is very important for developing the brain. So much knowledge can be found in books. It’s even better if the book teaches them a new skill.
When you read, your mind is focused on the information that is being passed to you. Your brain is working throughout the duration when you’re reading.
Many people take reading as a form of relaxing. It may be physically, but your brain is put to work.
4. Be active in day to day activities
For example, when you’re travelling, be active in planning out the route by looking at the map.
When you’re visiting an entertainment park, be the one who finds out which restaurants to eat, what “fast passes” there are, any discounts on a particular day, which rides require the most queuing etc…
When you’re doing these type of tasks, your brain is using its past knowledge and experience to complete it.
With these exercises, your brain will be in a creative mode and you’re well on your way to getting a good memory.

Best topic of d month!

Wao o o very interesting especially trying a new things....my own problems are spellings and acticulating some certain words
|Re: Secrets To Improving Your Memory In 7 Days by mayorall(m): 1:02pm On Jul 31, 2012|
Wow...This is cool,I have never read anything about my brain like this before..Tanx and God bless you...I WL PUT DEM INTO PRACTICE
|Re: Secrets To Improving Your Memory In 7 Days by Icee20: 9:44am On Aug 03, 2012|
Step 6 – Brain Exercise 3
Now we will do an exercise that will train up your short-term memory. With practice you’ll become very good at it.
Read through a magazine and as soon as you see a detailed picture, time yourself immediately for a minute while studying it.
Then write down as many things as you can remember from the picture. Your target is to remember 10 or more things.
Apart from pictures, you can also try to read a sentence (about 15 words) within a minute and then try to write out the whole sentence backwards.
Your brain will benefit from this strenuous exercise.
Step 7 – Memory Trick 1 – Having a Positive Attitude
When you start to study for something such as an examination, always have a positive mental attitude.
Tell yourself that the subject is interesting and that you’re good at remembering this topic. This helps you a lot with memorizing facts.
The fact that you’re affirming to yourself that you like the subject and find it interesting, your subconscious mind will believe in it. Especially after you repeat the statements with emotion.
Never, ever fear or be stressed with your studies. This will affect your ability to memorize the facts.
When you’re happy or take an interest in doing things, you will do it with the best of your ability.
If a child at school hates Geography either because of the teacher or because they find the subject boring, what are the chances that he will do well for this subject?
Remember to have a positive attitude whenever you’re learning something and tell yourself that you love the subject.
Step 8 – Memory Trick 2 – Don’t Multi-task
When you’re trying to remember something, never multi-task.
For example, never read and listen to music at the same time. Never have the television on when you’re reading. Having a good memory requires learning something with focus and paying full attention to it.
If you’re studying for an exam or reading an important book which you want to learn, then go to a quiet area with no distractions.
Switch off your cell phone, your email, your MSN Messenger and hang up a No-Disturb sign on the door.
When you’re focused and concentrate on reading the information, your brain has no choice but to remember it.
When you’re distracted from what you’re doing, you need a total of twenty minutes to get back into what you were doing. This is how long you need to get back into the flow of things.
A one minute phone call will practically waste 21 minutes of your time. Amazing when you look at things this way.

Sorry For not Updating For Awhile, Meanwhile, Let's Move on!
Step 9 – Memory Trick 3 – Know how you learn
Some people learn best by actually seeing things and some learn best
by hearing things. You need to know which way you learn things the
When you recall information from a class, do you recall it by hearing
what the teacher say, or do you visualize what was written in the text
book or from your notes?
It’s important that you find out which way is more effective for you to
learn and remember materials. If you’re a visual learner then write
down notes and draw diagrams on whatever you want to remember.
If you’re more effective at memorizing by hearing, then record
yourself on a tape recorder and listen to it over and over again.
