Organizing Thoughts to Sharpen Short Term Memory
How to sharpen the mind
At what time we organize our thoughts we are taking the first step into pulling up information easier. This is the start of sharpening the short-term mind. Since learning is a process of activeness, the second step is engaging the body to use senses as a whole to capture what you learn. Senses are the sanity, right state of mind, and/or wits.
Following step, one and two you will use the mind, while working smoothly with memories and avoiding battling the memories. Memories are mechanisms that work for us and not against us, therefore do not battle your helper. Many people battle against the mind by avoiding facing bad memories. This only hinders the mind from growing and learning.
To help you see how hindering the mind can deter sharpening the mind we can consider a brief tragedy. A young woman struggled throughout her life, since she suffered Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) currently known as Disassociate Identity Disorder (DID) and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The woman suffered amnesia and flashbacks ongoing. The disorders came from extreme torture, which her memories included pure hold cold fact realities. These memories were definitely hard to face. The woman had repressed her memories by disassociating with the tragedies. Still, the woman later in life was able to face the memories that held her back and learnt to stop allowing the predators to control her life. She was later integrated (pulling all personalities together and seating them symbolically in the mind) and was able to accept (note the keyword accept) that these realities existed and while they disrupted her entire life, she was able to move on. The woman now has a sharp mind and able to write about any subject imaginable to man. If this woman can do this after suffering more than the average human being will suffer in a lifetime, then you too can face your memories and move ahead. This person is now a published author, editor, owns, and operates her own business at home. This person is the author writing this series of articles. All information has evidence to support the facts.
As you can see organizing the thoughts, pulling the details together and facing the realities is essential in healing the mind so that it can work smoothly. Moving on to step four we can see recalling the memories is important to remembering and sharpening the mind. Recall is easiest at what time you pull all steps together to work through sharpening the mind.
Recall works in a couple of ways, therefore to understand both meanings can help you to learn recalling effectively. Recall cancels information, revokes data received, or else calls the information back to mind by restoring and reviving the information. The second choice is needed to sharpen the mind, however recalling revoking or canceling information is wise also, since you can weed facts from ineffectual information. This brings us to bringing in new information to verify the facts and learn to capture what the mind can understand.
Now you can move into learning information from general to the specifics of detail. This means, you will preview before jumping into a task. In other words, people often fail to remember because they jump into the task, rather than previewing the information before proceeding. Look at an example of jumping in verses previewing:
Picture yourself preparing to master a task. You are blindfolded as you move into handling the task, and after a few moments, you move closer to the task in demand, and swiftly take the blind folds off. You scan the task, and a few moments later, you have no idea what you were looking at. This is called jumping into something, rather than taking time to preview.
Consider again, you are preparing to master a task. The task includes reading ten sentences to prepare you for a short test. You preview the information, looking for keywords in the ten sentences then you probe into the reading. The mind had a chance to capture pieces of information, which reading the information will take you into the project. At the end of reading, you review the information and paraphrase areas of confusion. At what time you finish the project, you recant the details and realize you have all the information you need to pass the test.
