Do you always feel like you’re forgetting something important – like your keys, something for work, or an important date? Let’s face it, life is filled with information. According to the A.C. Nielsen Co., the average American watches 28 hours a week, or 2 months of nonstop TV watching per year. That’s nine years of a 65-year life spent in front of a screen — and that doesn’t even include our computers! Additionally, Consumer Reports exposed that the average person sees about 3000 ads in magazines, billboards, television, radio and other forms of media every day.
You can’t remember it all, but you can learn to hold onto the facts and information that you need to keep.
What can you do to hold onto everything, like work, school, birthdays, and anniversaries? How do you control what is necessary to remember or what you can do without? Can you train your brain? Of course you can! You can create a memory improvement system that is right for you, with the help of educational apps such as Memory Improvement or Memory Improvement Lite.
Your brain has different types of memory. We all know about long term and short term, but it isn’t as simple as it sounds. Your brain is more than two different hard drives – it is a complex network of crossed wires, storage systems and processors that make up associations, imagination, the senses, and three-dimensional memory.
You Can Learn™ has developed these two learning applications that will teach you how to improve the various types of memory. The full version will start you off by having you take a pre-course evaluation to figure out your own personal memory level. It can help you see the areas that you can improve upon. Everyone has room for improvement, and this a simple step you can take to make your memory a locked box instead of a leaky bucket. This application is resourceful and fun to use. Use the free lite version to explore the types of memory, and explore the full version to learn your memory strengths, weaknesses, and how to improve on both!
