How to Improve Your Memory Quickly

Is it possible to improve a person’s memory? Of course, without any doubt, yes. The problem is – how? Here are a few proven suggestions on how to do it. Most of the informations presented in this article are taken from .

Ponder upon the following ideas on how to improve a person’s memory:

Convince yourself that you do have a good memory that will improve. Too many people get stuck here and convince themselves that their memory is bad, that they are just not good with names, that numbers just slip out of their minds for some reason. Erase those thoughts and vow to improve your memory. Celebrate even little achievements to keep yourself motivated.

Memory is best practiced through association.[1] The reason that most of us can't remember our friend's phone number is because 535-3473 just a string of numbers that have no obvious connection to your friend. In order to use your memory efficiently, the best way is to actively create an association for things you're trying to remember. For example, write out your friend's phone number: five three five three four seven three. Now try to create a clever phrase that starts with the first letter of those words: fairy tales feel true for some time. You're now much more likely to remember that phone number.

• Alternatively, you could create a story that involves 5 characters buying 3 things and doing 5 more things with them... Use your imagination. The point is that you want to connect the phone number to something else. Throwing your best friend as a character in the story would be a good idea too.

Association also works if you create vivid, memorable images. You remember information more easily if you can visualize it. If you want to associate a child with a book, try not to visualize the child reading the book -- that's too simple and forgettable. Instead, come up with something more jarring, something that sticks, like the book chasing the child, or the child eating the book. It's your mind -– make the images as shocking and emotional as possible to keep the associations strong

Internet is The New World's Library

I am really grateful for this modern invention, the internet. Before, I could hardly get something to read without paying much. Now, anyone can just surf the internet and get thousands of e-books to read. Gone are the days when choosing a book to read will take a person 20 minutes or more. Today, a five-minute search is all a person needs to get that book to read. That is, online. People at this time are really fortunate. Reading is a good way to feed our minds, let us read always.

Happy New Year!

Year after year people celebrate the so said "New Year". It is good to celebrate it forever; but sad to say, not all of us can , for after a year passed, some will certainly leave this earth for good. However, let us not worry about that unintentional departure, everyone has his day for that. What is important is to make use of the days given for us to live. Let us not waste our time, but spend it in a productive way , for instance, pursuing that dream of getting a college education, starting that new hobby or beginning a new business. Lastly, let us remember God always, he has the power to make our dreams come true.

Buy Yourself a Gift This Christmas

For those who celebrate Christmas, this I would suggest, buy yourself a gift. It is not fair for you to wait all month for that special someone to make you happy. A gift for yourself must not be expensive, as long as you like it, then it serves the purpose. Most often than not, we were trained by culture that giving ourselves a gift is somewhat strange; but it should not be that way, you deserve happiness during Christmas. Treat yourself well, if you are giving something to others – is it not fair to give something to yourself? Try it this December, even if you have a small amount of money in your pocket; think of an item you can afford, one that you like, then go buy it. Anyway, this can only happen once a year.

How to Write a Good Headline

In newspapers, as well as in articles that dominates magazines online and offline, a headline is very important. Why is it important? Because a headline is a major factor for people to read the rest of the information presented. In a promotional letter, ninety percent of its success depends on a good headline. The question is, how can a person write a good headline? The answer is, by touching the emotions of the readers. Creating a headline that elicit an emotional response, is the way it should be written. Generally speaking, if a person has the capacity to purchase something, then that person is prone to buy what he wants than what he needs. Now, how can that “want” inside the reader be increased? The answer is, by projecting an irresistible image and feeling in his mind. The purpose of this, is not only for the reader to read, but to feel it. Another point that may complement in making a good headline is, to personalize the headline. That means, the word “you” must be there. Readers will be more receptive if the headline appears to be talking to them. Lastly, in writing a headline, consider this particular question that most readers often asked, “what’s in it for me?” , the answer to it would help anyone a lot in making a good headline.

The Generous Filipinos

Filipinos are known for its survival skill. They can adjust to almost any obstacle that life may place in front of them. Most of them are kind and generous; in fact, It is easy for them to hand thirty to fifty pesos to a person in dire need. Sad to say, that liberality in giving could not last long in few cases. A typical Filipino is a champion in helping others ; even if he only have enough for himself or a little extra, sparing a small amount to those in need is no problem at all. That is the original Filipino mentality, and many are still embracing it up to now. However, for a few who have the opportunity of leaving the Philippines, and are fortunate enough in creating a good life abroad, a new mentality sets in. They have developed an attitude of thriftiness. They are getting a lot more in a foreign country, but their generosity diminished. It is now hard for them, even just a dollar, to share to the needy. Majority of the Filipinos are still the generous, but a few have changed drastically.

Few Days to Live

While listening to a religious sermon, a preacher told the listeners that our days are fewer than expected. I could not fully understand what he was saying, until after he showed a computation of the days a person will have until the age of 70. Well, indeed it is few, in fact, a little shocking. A person will only have 25,550 days. That is, if we can reach 70. now, if you are in your 20's or 30's how many days do you think will you still have to live? It is important that we live our life the right way. We cannot bring back the time and become young again. Let us live our life the way God wants it to be lived.

Free To Believe

You and I have a belief of some sort. It means we believe something beyond the physical aspect of things, we have that part of ourselves that clings to the spiritual realm. Religion has been with us for a thousand years, and because of its variations, a debate will occur every now and then. Well, we can avoid the latter ( debate ), tell a person who has the argumentative mood to be calm, and that you want to study spiritual things in your own way. Meaning, self-study. Tell him that incase you want his idea or opinion, you will inform him. If you want to learn what a Baptist believe or what an adventist believe or what a catholic believe - ask them, take note, read their books...that way, you will avoid any argument and learn much as well. Remember, you are free to believe what you feel the truth is. Others based their belief in a book called the book of Mormons, others based it on another. For me, I chose the Bible to be my basis of belief, and I have reasons for that too.
