"Have you ever wondered why its difficult to remember some things and easy to recall others? Here’s a look at how memory works and the complex construction of memories in your brain.
There are three stages to making and recalling a memory:
Encoding, Storage, and Retrieval of Information."
Most  memories  are  created  by  visual,  acoustic  and  semantic  coding. A  memory  is  only  made  if  you  are  paying  attention.
A  memory  is  first  perceived  by  the  senses. The  hippocampus  receives  this  information  and  along  with  the  frontal  cortex  determines whether  the  information  is  important  enough  to  remember. The  information  is  then  saved  in  your  sensory  memory.
Storage  -­
A  memory  can  also  be  stored  in  your  short-­term  or  long-­term  memory. Long  term  memories  are  created  with  lots  of  repetition.  The  more  you  practice  or  remember something  the  stronger  the  connection  gets.
Retrieval  -­
Recalling  a  memory  is  usually  done  subconsciously,  and  is  dependent  on  how  effectively  it  was remembered.
Forgetting  -­
Retrieval  failure  (or  forgetting)  is  most  often  caused  by  distractions. Visuals  -­  (Person  puts  down  book  for  phone,  music,  television  etc.) Memory  loss  can  also  be  caused  by  disease,  medication,  trauma,  aging,  or  intoxication.
The  good  news,  is  improving  your  memory  is  possible! Foods  with  complex  carbohydrates,  fiber,  lean  protein  and  healthy  fats  can  help  your  brain functions.
For example wild salmon,  Grass-­fed  beef,  cacao  beans,  coffee,  Quinoa,  Greek  yogurt,  eggs  w/omega-­3 fatty  acids.
It  is  important  to  get  8  hours  of  sleep  every  night  to  allow  your  brain  to  process  information  to your  long-­term  memory  bank,  much  like  downloading  temporary  information  to  your  hard  drive for  safekeeping.  Many  of  these  memories  are  saved  during  the  rapid  eye  movement  stages  of sleep  which  occur  in  the  last  1-­2  hours  of  a  full  night  of  sleep.
Exercise  -­ Along  with  regular  physical  activity,  like  walking  or  yoga,  it  is  important  to  exercise  the  brain. Mental  exercises  include  listening  to  music,  reading,  puzzles,  and  stimulating  the  senses.
If  you  want  to  improve  your  memory  -­
Drink  in  moderation
Exercise! Visualisation  and  association  -­  attach  images  to  words  to  make  them  easier  to  remember  by linking  the  new  with  the  familiar. When  someone  tells  you  their  name,  repeat  it  back  to  help  long-­term  recall.
(“My  name  is  Craig.”  “Hi  Craig,  I’m  Jessica.”  “Nice  to  meet  you,  Jessica.”)
Pay  attention  -­  Eliminate  distractions  around  you  to  improve  your  focus  and  long-­term  encoding. Mind  Map  -­  Use  locations  or  sequencing  to  help  you  remember  things  as  they  occur. Repetition  -­  The  best  way  to  remember  something  is  to  practice  it  over  and  over!
