Is there any way to increase your memory?

I have a terrible memory and can't remember anything. I meet people and 2 minutes later I forget their name. I watch the Packers and Bucks all the time and forget the players names. If I have 2 things to do, I'll start one and completely forget about the other one.

I don't know if it's from detailing cars for years and breathing in lots of chemicals has affected my memory, but I absolutely hate it.

It feels like my brain is always blank and I can not put thoughts together to hold a decent conversation. Some people can talk and talk about nothing for 20 minutes but I can't do that at all.

It's INFURIATING What can I do to improve my memory.

Re: Is there any way to increase your memory?

Maybe you have ADD (not ADHD)? I am the same way - I can't remember anything. I'm sure someone will post "Everyone has ADD" blah blah blah, but taking meds does seem to help it a bit.

I can focus a bit better, and actually remember things. Sure, it's not a fix all, but it does help. It also helps me remember my notes, and not just doodle things when I write things down.

I'd talk to a doctor....

Exersice it. The brain is like a muscle. The more you use it, the sharper it will be.(ok, so muscles are sharp.)

Start studying stuff. Stuff you like. Do flash cards/outlines. Quiz yourself.

Doesn't it change your personality though, making you dull?

Re: Is there any way to increase your memory?

Gingko Biloba has worked well for me - you have to take it consistantly for at least a month, though. Most supplements have you take two pills a day and spread them out - I just always take two in the morning.

I can absolutely tell a difference in my ability to concentrate and memorize important things when I'm on it. That's really the only noticable difference, is in those 'crunch' times... the rest of the times like when I'm trying to remember where I put my keys, I never notice much difference.

Actually working out helps. The more blood you get to the brain the better. Try running every day. Eat better too

Re: Is there any way to increase your memory?

I have a terrible memory. My wife is always telling me to do stuff. But most of the time I'll be watching TV or on the computer so I'm only half listening, then have no idea what she said. So she always makes sure I'm looking right at her before she starts talking, but then all go onto something else and still forget what she said.

Ya I have a horrible memory.

The above post is spot on & says it all. I too recommend a lot of brain work (like reading, taking up a short course in any subject or field) and it's amazing how it starts working for you. You will soon start relating things and remembering. I recall seeing a book in a store titled "think fast, remember more". I regret not buying it, but I read somewhere that when you think fast (randomly), thoughts come together with accuracy. Some of the best work of strategists and CEO's have come together when under pressure to think in a limited time. I am wary of medical remedies. Eat healthy.
