    Hi,

    Its been sometime that my memory got so bad, I was wondering if my fellow tempers know a way or two about improving it.

    Playing memory games would really help.

    brain age and so?

    I tried the first one a long time ago on a regular basis, but didn't find much help.

    For better memory, you need to haves less things going on at once so you can focus easier. Also, just practicing everyday and make it a habit will increase memory. It's not always something your born with [​IMG] It's like asking how do I write, you got to practice

    I gave up on that years ago. just carry a notepad/PDA/smartphone that you can record everything you want to remember on.

    The more you repeat it, the easier it is to remember.

    Depending on what your trying to remember I guess. [​IMG]

    Umm if it's got loads of writing on it that may be why, because I think you image pictures easier than writing in your head. [​IMG]

    when you want to remember something, say it out loud (or whisper), or close your eyes and imagine what it is you are trying to remember for later:

    like, if you are trying to remember a few words or a number or something, imagine seeing those words/numbers in your head.

    Yeah, what sniper said. You have to actually store it in the first place before you can retrieve it. It doesn't just log in like a computer...Takes quite a bit of repetition but it get's easier as you practice it more

    Use a visual memory system to file away things you want to remember.

    For example if you want to remember the specific vase your aunt gave you is called a 'Gullie': Imagine a house on a street, go in the front door, then into the first room and imagine a vase with the nametag 'Gullie' displayed on the pedestal holding the vase with a photo of your aunt on the wall above it. Then when you want to recall it, you just have to take a virtual trip into your 'house' and look at the pedestal.

    Using either a visual memory map or remember by association is the way pros out there train their brains to remember a lot of crazy things, like the exact sequence of a deck of cards.
