Do you ever feel like something is right on the tip of your tongue? Accepting that this is a common trait among humans is an important step in learning to overcome it. Relax and breathe, then start saying memories or other words that you associate with the forgotten word. When you can successfully do this, it generally makes the word that eludes you move to the front of your thoughts. If you want to increase your ability to recall information, put pen to paper. This task increases blood flow to parts of the brain that handle memory, and it gives it a little workout. You may significantly increase your ability to remember important things by making a habit of letter writing or journaling.
Train your brain to help your memory. There are many ways to train your brain, but learning a new skill or to complete a new task can get your brain in top shape. Learn the rules of new games for instance.
Remember important information with the use of mnemonic devices. Connecting new information with what you already know will increase the likelihood that the new information will be incorporated into your long term memory. Mnemonic devices will oftentimes involve songs, rhymes or even jokes. When utilized properly, mnemonic devices are a really fun way to work on memory improvement.
