Here is a quick way to a better memory. 6 Minutes to a Better Memory For a quick and easy boost to your brainpower this weekend, pull down the shades, close your eyes, and catch some daytime ZZZs. People who take daytime naps outperform non-nappers on memory exercises. And, surprisingly, a mere 6 minutes of shut-eye is enough to refresh the mind. The Shut-Eyes Have It How does a quick catnap power up your thinker? Seems the mere act of falling asleep triggers a brain-boosting neurobiological process that remains effective regardless of how long you snooze. Do you nap, or can you even get to sleep in a short time. What problems do you see with doing the above?

Sounds like a nice tip. Although it would really be a problem since most of us work during the day and quick naps are impossible to do since there are only two breaks at work for most people that includes lunch and coffee break. So I'm not sure how exactly to go about this. I've done a quick nap before and it helped a lot really. I was so sleepy while I was driving and a friend told me that a 10 minute nap would be enough for you to continue on with what you're doing and not feeling sleepy. It was effective! But i was warned that it should be just 10 minutes cuz if you slept more than 10 minutes then it would be hard to fight sleep.

Before a test in school, I always close my eyes and put my head down on the table for a few minutes, then i look over my notes :) It's easeir to remember that way, somehow. I don't know why though. I never study for my test and I'm almost a straight A student..haha
