Did you know that one of the ways to improve your memory is to organize your life? That's right! There are simple things you can do.
Keep items that you frequently need such as keys in the same place every time. Don't strain your brain trying to remember where you put them all the time. If they are always put in the same place, it will become automatic and you won't have to think about it.
Use a planner to keep track of appointments and due dates. Don't rely on your memory to recall appointments and due dates. Write it down in one place every time. Keep that planner, whether it's a pocket calendar, your cell phone or your black berry with you at all times so that when you need to log in an appointment or a reminder for a due date, it is easily accessible.
Keep phone numbers in one address book, rolodex and cell phone. Same is true for phone numbers. If you keep all the pertinent information in one place, you will always know where to find it.
All of these tips will eliminate the stress of trying to remember to do things. You will have a "go to" place to retrieve the information you need quickly and easily.
Improved organization can help free up your powers of concentration so you don't have to spend time concentrating on remembering those routine things. You can focus instead on other things and thereby reduce your stress.
