Reasons of poor memory
Poor memory can be a frustrating problem when it becomes a cause for us to function below our abilities. The consequences can vary in type and seriousness.
Here are some possible causes:
1. Lack of proper nutrients.
2. Hardening of the arteries of the brain.
3. Poor blood circulation to the brain.
5. Exhaustion of the nervous system.
6. Scattering of mental energies on many activities.
7. Emotional problems which preoccupy the mind.
8. Lack of organization.
9. Poor living habits in general.
10. Too much alcohol or other drugs.
11. Chronic use of tranquilizers or painkillers.
12. Lack of exercise or release of tension through movement.
13. Build up of toxins in the body.
1. Clean out the body and mind with pure diet and occasional fasts so that the nerves and blood vessels will be revitalized.
2. Eat foods, which have high quantities of B complex vitamins, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Calcium.
3. If the problem is serious, take supplements: B complex, Brewers? yeast, Magnesium, Calcium as well as an amino acid complex specifically created for improving memory.
4. Avoid white sugar, white flour and all products made from them. Avoid all chemical preservatives and all over processed foods or foods cooked some days before.
5. Concentrate on raw fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts and whole grains.
6. Eat alfalfa sprouts regularly.
7. Free your mind daily from whatever is burdening it with deep relaxation and positive projection techniques.
8. Learn to meditate and concentrate your mind.
9. When you want to remember something specific, repeat it three times to yourself associating it with some image, which you will not forget. Images remain more clearly in our minds. Thus if you make some image humorous or serious for each important thing you want to remember, you will be more successful in remembering.
10. Make lists of whatever you need to do each day. In this way you do not need to burden your mind with something that a piece of paper can do. When you have completed each activity cross it off and whatever is not completed that day can be transferred to the next day. Keep a paper and pen on you at all times and write down immediately what is important for you to remember. In this way there is no chance of forgetting something important.
11. Keep a daily diary in which you observe those things, which you tend to forget. If you can determine the types of things you forget and the situations in which you usually forget, you may be able to detect a pattern which can be corrected.
