Restfulness: The Secret To a Good Memory

One key to success is your memory. Being able to pick up and remember the fine details of what you’ve learned can help you move forward quickly. What’s the best strategy for using your memory effectively? Sleep.

As an article on the Medical News Today website explains, sleep is essential for consolidating memories. Insufficient or poor sleep makes the synapses in your brain less effective, which interferes with your ability to learn new information.

Moreover, recent studies suggest that taking a quick nap, or even just resting quietly for 10 minutes or so, can help new information settle into your memory so you can access it more readily later.

After a training session or an important conversation, take a few minutes to sit back, close your eyes, and think of nothing. Even if you don’t fall asleep, you’ll have a better grasp of the information when you go back to work.
