How To Increase Your Memory

A strong memory is absolutely mandatory if you want to excel in school, in your career, in sales, or almost every aspect of life. In fact, even on a purely social level, having a strong knack for matching faces with names will help you gain lots of friends throughout your lifetime. Make no mistake about it-a strong memory can take you far. If you would like to boost your memory skills, you have to realize that memory recall is a product of two key factors: your mental hardware and your activities. You have to take care of both of these if you want to boost your recall powers.

Reduce your stress levels

One of the most important factors affecting the brain is the level of stress it is under. Stress can come from many different sources. If you don’t sleep right, you stress your mental hardware. If you have a tough time forgiving people or if you tend to carry a grudge you stress your mind. If you have lots of commitments and obligations competing for your time, you get stressed out. To increase your brain’s ability to store and retrieve information, you need to minimize your stress levels. Make sure you get enough sleep. Don’t compromise-train yourself to sleep eight hours a night without fail. Learn to forgive and let go of past slights. Take up simple meditation or breathing exercises to clear your mind. Don’t take your work home with you. Give your brain some space and time to unwind. With less stress, your mental hardware can store more information and retrieve it faster.

Panic Disorder Treatment

When one undergoes excessive stress, the body is subjected to several emotional and physical changes and so it tends to lose its natural balance and functioning. Stressful situations can trigger panic disorders, which consists of symptoms, such as nausea, shortness of breath and muscle spasms. Panic disorders can lead to stomach problems and increase in the risks of heart attacks and strokes. Panic attacks are usually divided into two categories; panic disorder with agoraphobia and panic disorder without agoraphobia.

A panic disorder with agoraphobia occurs when a person fears having a panic attack in a given place, from where they may be unable to escape. They fear drawing attention towards them as they leave. In other words, they feel cornered in a kind of social setup. On the other hand, a panic disorder without agoraphobia is characterized by recurrent unexpected panic attacks that do not occur due to direct physiological effects of substances such as drugs nor mental disorders, such as Social Phobia and Specific Phobia. If you are having any kind of panic disorder, here are some potential remedies that you may want to consider.

How to Enhance Memory

If you have a tough time connecting faces with names or you tend to misplace your keys a lot, it might be a good idea for you to take active steps to boost your memory and recall ability. When trying to do so, keep in mind that there are two elements you need to cover for effective memory improvement. You have to address both the environmental and physical aspects of your brain’s overall health. Your mental hardware is not the only factor in increasing memory power. Your brain also responds to environmental stimuli. The way you use and how frequently you use your brain is as important as your brain’s physical health in determining your memory power. Address both this bases so you can improve your overall memory power.

The importance of the right diet and physical exercise

If you want to enhance your memory, you need to eat the right food. All the time, effort, and energy you spend on increasing your memory through memory games, socialization, and getting the right amount of sleep all goes out the window when the physical component of your memory-your brain’s physical health is neglected. Your brain doesn’t operate in a vacuum. It is a part of all the other systems in your body. In particular, if you have cardiovascular conditions like hypertension, your brain health might suffer due to the restricted flow of blood. Your brain is the most oxygen-hungry organ in your body. It needs healthy blood flow for optimal operation. When you have hypertension or other cardiovascular conditions, blood flow is affected and your brain and memory suffer. If you want to boost blood flow to your brain, avoid fatty foods and cholesterol. Eat more fruits and vegetables. You should also accentuate your diet with the right amount of seeds, nuts, and grains. Foods that help fight cardiovascular degeneration help your brain by improving blood flow. Just as important, you should get on a regular exercise program. Brisk exercise for 30 minutes to one hour daily can go a long way in helping reduce cardiovascular disease risks and boosting your mental faculties.

However, you are not as intelligent as you may believe and you are insensitive.

And the longer the break, the better we’ll feel when we return to our daily routine. We tend to be more productive if we take deliberate breaks, not only during the day, but also from everyday life.
