How can I improve my memory?

Tips and Techniques for Memory Enhancement.

There are many theories and ideas about improving memory, but there is one mnemonic method that has been around since ancient times.

Ancient accounts show that early Greek and Roman orators used the "loci" method of remembering long speeches and lists. You may be able to use this method to enhance your memory at test time.

The term loci refers to places or locations. To use the loci system, you will first need to thing of a place or route that you can picture in your head very clearly. It can be your house, your school bus route, or any place that contains clear landmarks or rooms.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Memory is repetition. One should be focus on one task at a time. Omega 3 fatty acids are also helpful. Some practitioners have good experience with ginkgo biloba.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
