Hi,
Do exercise regularly which will keep your mind fresh and body active.Wakeup early morning and study because at that time brain will be relaxed with good blood circulation.Solve puzzles like suduko which will increase your memory power.Take vallarai kheera in your food or take vallarai capsules which has more effect on memory power.

Hello Chittranjan,

You are not the only one facing this problem in the present generation. Many people have been victims of this common problem.

But the fact is that rememberance power is different from forgetfulness. Many of us do forget some things because our mind is pre-occupied with many other things and tensions. Some people do forget everything in just few hours.

According to studies they say that a normal person remembers 90% of the content he listens to after 5minutes. After 20minutes he can remember only 70% of what he listens. After 24hours he can remember 20-30% of what he listens.

So if you are in this range then you might be normal. Because our minds capacity is set to that limits.

But there are some people whose memory power is very high above the normal range and their percentage will vary accordingly.

If you are very much below the roughly calculated range then you need to follow some simple steps:

1. Be positive that you can do everything.

2. Try to concentrate on what you read, listen or write.

3. Get relief from tensions and be at peace.

4. There is no problem in this world that God cant solve so be happy and move forward.

5. Eat healthy food rich in protiens, carbohydrates, etc.

6. Eat more fish, fresh fruits.

7. Go for outing and enjoy to the maximum without hearting others.

8. Read repeated times and chose silent environment.

9. Pray to God and ask him what you want he will surely give you good rememberance power.

Hope this post will help you and motivate you to be the person you want to be.

Regards,
Spandana

Few tips to remember what you are reading:

1) Read with extreme concentration: Concentration can be increase by doing asanas like Pranayama and Yoga Nidra. Try your maximum not to divert your mind while studying.

2) Study in a Silent Environment: A library would be preferred else choose a place where no other activities are visible. This just adds to the previous point by improving concentration.

3) Write Summaries: After reading a page or so, try to write down, on a piece of paper, a summary of what you have just studies. Compare your summary with the original data. This process highlights upon the parts which you are forgetting. The fact that you have forgotten a point ,makes you remember it.

4) Ask Questions: If some friend of yours is willing to help, let him ask questions from the page you have just studied.Concentrate a little more on the areas you are not able to answer.

5) Visualize things: have you ever wondered why you remember the story of a movie but not studies. This is because you visually see a movie. Visual interpretation helps a lot in remembering things.
For eg: if you are reading a biology lesson, try to imagine all the parts in your body and how each one operates. Close your eyes and visualize the same.

6) Relate things: if i have to remember the word "allegory" then I would relate it as "allergy with a or after g" or simply "G or Allergy", which is quite simple to remember.

Hope this helps...

Dear Friend,

I think meditation will help to gain more memory power.
Just do 10 min meditation every day.For more better results you can practice specific mudras during meditation.I will explain about the mudra in detail.First I will tell you how to do meditation.

Sit in calm place with your back straight.The room should have proper air circulation.Switch off the fan.Try not to do meditation after food.Best time is in the morning or in the evening.Breath in and out slowly.As you breath in feel that you are absorbing all goodness in this universe.Think about the happy moments.As you breath out feel that your problems are going away from you.Feel relaxed.Don't rush the process.Do this for 2 or 3 minutes.

After some time place all the fingertips together as shown in the figure.This specific hand position is known as Hakini mudra.
When you would like to remember something place your fingertips together, direct your eyes upward, place the tip of your tongue on your gums while inhaling, and let the tongue fall again while exhaling.Then take a deep breath—and what you wanted should immediately occur to you.It is said that,Hakini mudra helps to connect right and left brain hemispheres. It is said to open access to the right hemisphere, which is where the memory is stored.This mudra is nowadays used in many memory improvement programs.

Regards
vipin

Hai Chittaranjan,

Misusing Technology is one of the Reason for this problem: Memory loss is most widely found problem now-a-days.I can say this is because we dont utilize our brain power properly.In those days there where less external storage facilities and so there was a necessity to remember things. But in these days we dont try to remember even a ten digit phone number, stating that "It is stored in my phonebook".Try to remember certain things.

Do simple calculations mentally rather than searching for calculators.

Taking a lot of Vitamin B Supplements will help in increasing Memory power.

Flawless Blood flow The Blood flow to the brain should be normal.To normalize it we can go for doingExercises such as Meditation and other exercises with concentration.

Concente the work you do For Example Often these kind of people misplace their things such as keys,etc.,and will be searching for it.To avoid this say to yourself that "I am keeping my keys here", so thtat at the time you are in need of it , the place will automatically strike your mind.

Play as many memory games as possible

Nature is a gift of god Trust on the herbs also to increse your memory power.

Finally Practice makes man perfect. You must utilize your brain to the maximun you can to get best result.
