In my efforts to continually improve my memory, and support others who are trying to improve theirs, I've tested many different techniques and tools on myself.
This is one I'll have to study more: the effects of silence.
Many times when I'm training for a memory competition, I have to go to a coffee shop or other busy and noisy location to make sure I'm used to blocking out distractions.
For training, daily meditation, or even cooking dinner, though, my preferred background noise is... silence. A new article about a study suggests that silence may help us remember better.
There may be a link between silence and stress reduction, and stress reduction and memory.
I'm passionate about memory improvement, and use my seminars, keynote speeches, and private coaching to help people discover that remembering better can be fun and easy! Drop me a note with what you're struggling with and I'll help.
