The 5 Senses Memory Enhancement Project
Are you preparing for an exam that involves a lot of memorization of new terms, dates, concepts and
mathematical formulas? Let me guess. You are a fellow reviewee for the LAST Real Estate Board Exam this May 24, 2015? Well, if you are, then you might want to check this brief article below which I curated from all over the internet.
When I first searched for tips in enhancing memory and concentration on the internet, I saw that there are memory-enhancing music, memory-enhancing smells, memory-enhancing foods and etc. I thought, why not put all these scientifically proven memory-enhancing goodies altogether and target all the five senses? This moved me to create my very own 5 Senses Memory Enhancement Project – which I am sharing to you now.
STEP 1 – HEARING
Remember the Mozart Effect? According to research, music composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart enhances mental activity. Others say that songs with 60 beats per minute work for them while they are studying. Others prefer “nature music” to relax their senses. I say, go with your own flow. As for me, I prefer the binaural beats. There are claims that binaural beats not only help people memorize, it also help in dieting and improving athletic performance. Some people mix binaural beats with some classical music, but I like it as is. This sample binaural beat from YouTube is my favorite.
STEP 2 – SIGHT
In 2009, The New York Times published an article about a study of the colors red and blue and their effects on the mental activities of humans. The study showed that those who were exposed to color red scored higher than those who were exposed to color blue in a series of tests that involved details such as remembering words and checking spelling and punctuation. On the other hand, those who were exposed to color blue scored higher in tests that involved creativity and thinking outside the box.
So, then, how much of color red do you need? Not much. Any small red-colored object will do.

STEP 3 – SMELL
The Huffington Post published an article last 2013 about the findings of some researchers from the University of Northumbria. The researchers placed a group of 66 people in either a rosemary-scented room or another room with no scent. The participants were then given various tests to assess their memory functions. The results? The participants from the rosemary-scented room performed so much better.
Great to know that 100% natural Rosemary Oil is available in the Philippines through Human Nature!
STEP 4 – TOUCH
There are acupressure points all over our body that, when pressed, can enhance memory and concentration. Using the same Rosemary Oil that you smelled, apply a little amount on those acupressure points and then start pressing. Please check out the links below for references and instructions.
STEP 5 – TASTE
Did you know that chewing gum can enhance your mental performance? Well, choose the sugar-free ones. Consuming pure sugar can cause your blood sugar to drop suddenly which can hurt your concentration. Find out more from an article here by NBC News.
