Here is a memory tip! Remember something by categorizing it in your mind. This will make recall much easier! As an example, if you are going to go food shopping remember meat and that will remind you that you need pork, beef and chicken.

Things are easier to remember if they have a special meaning to you. Think about why you need to memorize the information. If you are going shopping, ask your self why, for example. It could be for your child's birthday, and thinking about that will help you remember what you need to buy.

Paying more attention to your interactions and surroundings with others makes it easier to remember names, ideas and facts. Try to picture how to spell it, or ask them if there is a question about the spelling, if you are introduced to someone new. Ask them, "is that Tracy with a I or Y? " You can then make a pleasant comment or observation about the name in order to commit it more thoroughly into your memory. Using a name in conversation is probably the best way to ensure that you remember it later. People like to hear their own names so use their names liberally.

Did you know that reading out loud can significantly increase your ability to recall and memorize new information?
