  1. I will preface my opinion on how to preserve and develop memory with a few examples.

    To us, students of the Kazan Medical Institute, at the Department of Psychiatry, Professor V. S. Chudnovsky showed a young man with Down syndrome.

    A jovial guy who had difficulty mastering self-service skills was given a flip calendar. He flipped through the pages with short, rough fingers and, with a satisfied smile, handed the calendar to the professor. Then, to the students ' questions, he called the day of the week, any month, any date without any mistake.

    After a while, he would forget everything and look at the same calendar as when he first saw it. He could not think, he had no imagination, the impressions he had received were immediately lost, the actions he had learned were not retained.

    Perfect visual memory was associated with dementia.

    Francois de La Rochefoucauld owns the aphorism:

    “Everyone complains about their memory, but no one complains about their mind.”

    The wise old people said:

    • When God wants to punish a person, he does not take away his memory, but his mind.

    Memory provides the mind with the ability to perform its function, the highest form of mental activity.

    Memory and reason connect attention, impressions, acquired knowledge and skills, imagination, and thinking. Memory is a necessary condition for personal development.

    Therefore, it is necessary to develop memory. But only in connection with the development of attention, imagination, thinking, accumulation of impressions, improvement of skills and abilities.

    Perhaps the only way to preserve your memory and mind is to continuously read fiction and reflect on what you've read.

    Depth of reflection is closely related to the accumulation of vocabulary.

    The basis of memory and reason is the constant training of acquired knowledge, skills and abilities.


    – Constant reading and reflection on what you've read.

    • Constant accumulation of new words and filling them with new content.
    • Continuous training of acquired knowledge, skills and abilities.
    • Constant physical activity aimed at achieving the set goal.
    • Constant care for your neighbor, with the experience of the need for your care, without the expectation of praise and reward.
  2. There are many different ways, techniques, exercises and techniques. You can search for special literature or training courses. But if we talk about simple methods that do not require any financial costs or waste of time, then you can simply learn a quatrain or a small poem every day( it takes almost no time, but the effect is good).

    You can practice by looking at an object or group of objects for a few minutes, and then turning away and trying to tell them in detail what the object or objects were and what they looked like.

    Absolutely simple exercises, following the example of which you can come up with your own.

    Well, if you don't want to bother yourself, then you can look for applications for memory development. For example, one of these is called Memorado.

  3. Very simple and very difficult exercise. Every time you go to bed, remember your day. Starting with the alarm clock and as much detail as you can. Every step. Every minute. What we did, what we saw. What you heard. What you were thinking. Try. Good luck)

  4. What are some useful tips for improving and developing your memory?

    You should not follow any of the local advice, except to read books about mnemonics/mnemonics. What sensible advice can be given in one short answer, if the whole science is studying it?
