Ways to Improve Your Short and Long-Term Memory During Quarantine

As we pass a year under quarantine, the effects of this isolation are really starting to show. If you've been struggling with your memory and other cognitive functions, you're not alone. Brain fog is a problem that can affect anyone when under stress.


What has been the continued uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 epidemic in relation to isolation strategies, means we have had twelve months of unusual challenges.


By employing brain-training strategies that help reconnect the neural pathways associated with memory, as well as connecting ideas and related concepts, you can rebuild those brain functions that may have been adversely affected.

Keep reading to learn more how you can improve your short-term and long-term memory during quarantine and beyond.



Building Memory Capacity: Short-Term and Long-Term


Just like our physical bodies need exercise, our brains also require regular "workouts" to stay healthy. For example, if you were learning to play chess for the first time, your brain wouldn't be able to process the endless possibilities the game has to offer. However, if you kept practicising, the neural pathways in your brain would start to spark and ignite memory, strategy and planning skills, becoming stronger over time and more capable of storing numerous thinking patterns.


Our memory capacity is divided into two main categories: our long-term memory and our short-term memory. While distinctly related, both require different brain-training methods in order to have them working optimally. For maximum effectiveness, going beyond your mental comfort zone is essential.


Brain-Training Programs to Combat Memory Loss


We know that we can build short-term and long-term memory by activating neural pathways, connecting ideas with related concepts, and participating in brain-training strategies on a regular basis. But how can we do this in a way that's quick, efficient, and highly effective?


CoreSenses uses the Arrowsmith Program to deliver a series of exercises that are designed to hone your brain's short-term and long-term memory capabilities. The following are our main brain-training approaches:

  1. Motor symbol sequencing: tests your short-term memory by analysing your abilities to reproduce a written line up of symbols

  2. Symbol relations: helps train your brain by connecting ideas between two or more concepts

  3. Memory for information or instructions: analyses the neural pathways that help process auditory information by testing your ability to remember instructions

  4. Predicative speech: tests the ability to comprehend how the sequences of numbers and words work together to form procedures and sentences

  5. Broca's speech pronunciation: builds the ability to pronounce syllables and integrate them into words

  6. Symbolic thinking: grows the ability to use language to employ plans and strategies

  7. Symbol recognition: tests the ability to recognize a word or symbol

  8. Lexical memory: tests the ability to recall groups of unrelated terms within a sequence

  9. Non-verbal thinking: builds ability to non-verbally process information and solve problems

  10. Quantification sense: tests mental capabilities of solving sequential operations

These programs are specially designed to stretch your mental comfort zone, building your memory and impacting other cognitive abilities.


Combatting the Quarantine Brain Fog


If you've been struggling with your memory during quarantine, employing brain-training programs can help rebuild what's been lost.
