I have a great memory. I am able to learn new information, recall old details, and memorize data. I take care of my body in order to maintain my memory in good health.
I eat nutritious foods that promote healthy brain development. The foods I feed my body help me improve my attention span. I get enough sleep for my body to function properly. Eating a healthy diet and getting enough rest is a requirement for me to stay alert.
When I am learning new material, I make sure that I understand it rather than just memorize it. I use mnemonic devices, rhymes, and acronyms to assist me when recalling information.
I engage my senses by using pictures, scents, and musical cues to aid in memorization. I use crossword puzzles, number puzzles, and brainteaser games to test my memory and keep it sharp.
When I want to remember a detail such as someone's name, I repeat it to myself over and over and say it out loud in conversation. I link the name to the person's face to ensure that I memorize it.
I can recall the events of previous days, months, and years. I am able to remember where I put small items. I can easily locate my keys, cell phone, and wallet by paying attention to what I do and making mental notes of events.
Today, I choose to strengthen my memory by taking care of my brain. I breathe deeply to allow sufficient oxygen to flow to my brain, maximizing its capacity.
