Sometimes you might read something and the next minute you have totally forgotten what you read. This doesn’t mean your brain is being ineffective; there are so many things your brain does every day, whether you’re conscious of it or not.
To easily remember what you read, these four tips would come in handy.
Make an impression with the text you are reading, picture a scene of it and play it in your mind. You can also highlight those important areas and read them out loud repeatedly.
2. ASSOCIATE YOURSELF WITH WHAT YOU’RE READING
It’s easier to remember events than to remember what you read, that’s because you associated with the event. You can do that with your reading too. Associate what you’re reading with certain aspects of your life, relate it with your life and the things going on around you.
Reading it once might not be enough, read it again and again. Practice makes perfect remember? The more you read and repeat it to yourself, the better you would remember it.
Discussing what you’ve read with someone else or a group of people is probably the surest way to remember what you read. If you notice, you easily recollect your discussions with friends and to a large extent remember how each word was said.
Discussing what you read is like combining tip one, two and three together.
