2. Create a visual image.
If you’re trying to remember someone’s name, visualize an object that will help remind you of them or something associated with them in the future.
3. Create an acronym.
Train your brain to remember items in a specific sequence by creating a word to represent the objects. Try using the first letter of each item on your shopping list to form a word. For instance, MOST can stand for milk, oranges, soap, toilet paper.
4. Write it down.
Even if you don’t actually use your list or a note to remind you of an appointment, the task of simply writing the information down will help your brain retain it.
5. Create a rhyme.
How did you learn the alphabet or the number of days in each month when you were little? You probably learned them with the help of a song or rhyme. Try doing the same thing with names, appointments, and lists.
6. Exercise your brain.
