Memorize anything by closing your eyes!
Giving your eyes a break improves your ability to remember new information! The proof: In a recent British study, students who were told a story, then given a 10-minute break to shut their eyes, remembered twice as many details one week later compared to students who didn’t close their eyes after hearing the story. Turns out, momentary “shuteye” gives your brain a sensory break, allowing it to consolidate new information faster. You can re-create the same effect just by taking a breather from, say, reading or studying every few minutes, closing your eyes and relaxing!
