Where did I put my keys? Why did I walk into the kitchen? What’s that person’s name?
If you ask yourself these questions a lot, you’re not alone.
The average American is exposed to more than 100,000 words of information in a single day!
That’s a lot for your brain to sort through.
It’s no wonder remembering simple facts can be challenging, but there are some ways to help you remember better.
Whitney Amman explains in Healthy Living.
Experts say if you want to remember someone’s name, try to make an association when you first hear it.
So you might study the person’s face and associate “bushy eyebrows” with their name.
Or you might give them a nickname “Nate” might be “Nate the great” to you.
The more ridiculous the nickname, the better your chances of remembering it.
