Stress can make you forgetful. When attempting to bring up a memory or to retain new knowledge, consciously try to relax. Take your time to remember whatever you have to, rather than getting frustrated. One way to make sure you remember things is through using a strategy called “chunking.” With “chunking,” you find a way to make several related pieces of information more memorable. For example, you might find a way to make all the digits in someone’s phone number significant so they are more easily recalled later.
Allow your brain to conjure up information that is permanently stored in your mind, and then associate it with new thoughts that you wish to retain. This is how the brain recalls information. When it can draw a link to something familiar, new information is easily retained for longer periods. You can memorize things more quickly using this method.
