Do I remember a wonderful moment?
Probably everyone who ever passed the exam remembers this nightmare: you take a ticket, and there are questions you don’t remember the answers to at all, although I’m sure you taught. And it doesn’t matter how much time and effort it took to prepare - there is no, no memory, and it will give out a “clean sheet” at the most inopportune moment.
Of course, for the student, good memory is the most important tool. But even after leaving the educational institution, we need the effective work of our “internal library”. In addition, in the modern world the amount of incoming information is growing exponentially, and sometimes it seems that the brain simply “explodes” under its pressure. But you should try to extract from all this chaos and, more importantly, keep something especially valuable and expensive in your memory: your mother’s birthday, wedding anniversary, and a trip to the sea. And how much you need to “keep” in your head at work, it’s even scary to remember!
Are there any simple and effective ways to improve your memory? Of course, many scientists are working on this task. There are special expensive courses for representatives of some professions. There are schools of memorization and quick reading (information processing) developed by enthusiasts. But, as a rule, we don’t have enough time or money to attend special courses. And more often both that, and another. What can be done independently to make our memory “work” better?
It is worth remembering that the brain is the same part of our body as the lungs, heart or arm. And the need for rest and relaxation is very important for him. Sleep disturbances, lack of physical activity, oxygen deficiency, as a rule, lead to a decrease in the functioning efficiency of the central nervous system. That is, a systematic approach is indispensable. But physical exercise, walks in the fresh air and healthy sleep are so useful that all the efforts made will surely pay off handsomely.
The state of our memory also depends on proper nutrition. For example, excessive consumption of certain types of fats can lead to a change in the walls of blood vessels. The resulting atherosclerotic plaques impair blood circulation and, as a result, brain nutrition worsens. And from the "worn out" vessels not far from a stroke. This disease, like other diseases of civilization, is rapidly becoming younger. So already at a young age it is worth thinking about reducing the consumption of fast food and excessively fatty, fried foods. It is better to replace them with vegetables and fruits, which we, as a rule, do not eat enough. Recently, nutritionists have come to the conclusion that a complete diet should include a minimum
3. Be careful with stimulants!
How often do we try to “whip” the brain with the next portion of the stimulator when performing a crucial task? It was once popular to mix a “horse” dose of coffee with soda. Now on almost every corner you can see energy and tonic drinks. Such an incentive may give a small short-term effect, but the consequences for the body, especially with regular use, can be very sad.
4. No bad habits!
Smokers and alcohol addicts quite seriously claim that it “helps them think.” If you look at the situation from the side, alcohol and nicotine rather help not to think. Since the sensations of a surge of strength, vitality and joy, as well as “enlightenment in the head” that may occur at first, are not only short-lived, but also false - the regular use of significant doses of alcohol and nicotine disrupts the work of various organs and systems - and firstly the turn of the brain. Of course, not everyone can manage to cope with addiction right away, but a huge portion of self-esteem awaits the winner. If you add to this several years of life, a change in its quality and an improvement in memory, then, you must agree, it’s worth a try!
5. Help "nootropics."
Nootropic drugs or, as they are also called, nootropics (from the Greek noos-mind and tropos-turn, direction) are medicinal substances that selectively improve the functions of the brain and increase its resistance to various damaging factors. For decades, Russian scientists studied the properties of the brain, after which they developed and patented an innovative drug from this group -
Do not be surprised if the doctor prescribes
Noopept - a pill for memory.
