The 5,4,3,2,1 trick Can Boost Your Memory

With so much to remember on a daily basis, how do you recall the truly important things in your life, such as happy moments with your family? Peter Kinderman, a Professor of Clinical Psychology at the university of Liverpool has tackled that question in order to develop a new technique to help you recall any situation with perfect clarity.  The 5-4-3-2-1 meditation technique is a popular practice which helps people ground themselves in  a moment and is often used by people who struggle with anxiety to regain control of their thoughts.

Here’s  how to use the 5-4-3-2-1 Memory Technique.

5.   Point out a mental note of 5 things you see: eg. Sunset, article of clothing, sign, etc.

4.   Notice 4 things you hear: eg.  Phones buzzing; traffic; chatter at work.
