Want to remember more of what you read? Give your brain a 10-15 minute rest. No phones, no distractions, just pure boredom, a quiet room and dimmed lights.
Why do we need to reduce interference?
It takes longer for new information to encode and simply consuming more or squandering time on social media will make it even hard to remember.
When we let the mind wander, the brain works backward and connects the dots, cementing those memories that were previously unlinked.
So stop chasing extra stimulation and let your brain rest in its own presence. Your memory will thank you for it.
If you're an WRITER or aspiring blogger, I highly recommend doing these 3 things:
1. Read Do the Work by Steven Pressfield
2. Create your own blog and publish something new every day (read my post on how to set up a FREE blog on Wordpress).
3. Buy an All-Access Pass from Masterclass to learn from the best writers in the world.
