You want a better memory?  Get a good night's sleep.  Don't be hungry, but don't be full either.  Don't have a headache.  Don't be stressing over something other than what you're trying to remember.

All that is the EASY stuff.  Now here's the tough one: actually care about what you are trying to remember.  If it's important enough to you, your brain will give you PTSD over it never mind just remember it.  Your brain loves to record novelty or trauma. So hopefully it's not something that important.  Just something emotionally significant will do.  Find a way to care enough and you'll remember.

But if you don't really, really care... repetition and testing yourself until you can't forget it at least in the short term.  That'll do it too, but it's really tedious.

Selling a book? Wanna hook folks? Give 'em a vague headline, then tell them to get some sleep, don't eat junk, and try to relax.

Most important of all, I try to avoid sugar. Your brain uses glucose (sugar) as fuel, but refined carbohydrates like high fructose corn syrup found in sodas are not good sources of fuel. Your brain gets a burst of too much glucose, then too little.

I see this lady's tinfoil hat is on as tightly as mine is.

fark I'm tired of hearing about meditation. I'll just be forgetful if the alternative is concentrating on my breath for 5 minutes.

Whatever thoughts come, simply acknowledge them return your focus to your breathing.

She forgot something there.
