Remembering Names With Visuals
Spend 5 minutes a day assigning a picture to every name and create a visual. Follow Ron White’s example: “Karen is carrot, and then when I meet Karen, I'm looking for the carrot on her face. “ Doing so will ensure you can always match a name to a face and avoid the embarrassment of forgetting!
Brain games, like crosswords and chess are great, but brain yoga is even better because you can do it anywhere and you don’t need any equipment. Just hold up two fists. Stick up one thumb on one hand and the pinky on other hand and switch simultaneously. Practicing this exercise strengthens neural connections and even creates new ones. Studies have found that using your fingers stimulates nerve endings that go directly to the brain. Practice this for 5 minutes a day, and you'll be amazed by how much you improve.
