Me­morize any­thing by clos­ing your eyes!

Woman's World - - Made By You -

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!
