What Your "Working Memory" Does and How to Optimize It

What Your "Working Memory" Does and How to Optimize It | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Working memory is one of the most important cognitive functions we have.


It helps us through different key stages of our lives from learning the alphabet to understanding social situations, prioritizing multiple activities, and meeting deadlines.


But there are some ways we can try to increase our working memory capacity:


  • Reduce the stress in your life
  • Exercise More and Stay Fit
  • Learn new skills like plaing an instrument


We know that our brain has a limited capacity to hold on to information during a task and has a hard time deflecting distractions.

So, whatever we can do to increase this capacity - whether it’s exercising vigorously, learning a new skill, or practicing mindfulness techniques - helps us stay focused and quiets all those other millions of things trying to take away our attention.

5 Scientific Reasons You Should Choose Your Friends Carefully - Forbes | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it
Friends can impact not just the quality of your life - but also the length of it.


Throughout adulthood, it’s easy to lose touch with old friends and it can be hard to develop new friendships.


The ditigal age has complicated this process as well by changing the way friends interact. As phone calls have been exchanged for text messages and social media has replaced the need for face-to-face interaction, gatherings with friends often become fewer and farther between.

Celebrate the Stuff You Already Own

Celebrate the Stuff You Already Own | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Origin stories are vitally important for your business.


They are vital for the way that your customers perceive and engage with you and they are vital for your employees.


But the reason they are important is because they provide us all with a narrative that speaks to our sense of purpose.

Ivo Nový's insight:

Effective storytelling is fine and beautiful art which stands out above all the noise.

A well presented story is successful in achieving its objectives and it is remembered long after all others are forgotten.


So, show, don’t tell.
Get people to listen. Engage with visual content and combine it with other effective content.
