You furiously wander around the house as you try to remember something important. Some memory tricks involve holding your forehead, rubbing your scalp with your fingertips, and staring into the sky with a look of contemplation. You may even plead with the higher powers to open the door to the vault of things you’re supposed to know and remember. Because you can’t spend your entire day attempting to recall a memory no matter how important, and figuring it out later is the resolution. Three days later, you suddenly remember that critical thing with the quickness of lightning, leaving you to figure out how to correct such a significant mistake simply because you couldn’t remember…
We all experience situations where we cannot recall some information we feel we should easily remember. When the recall doesn’t occur as anticipated, we are often filled with negative emotions and the negative behaviors to match. For example, blaming our age, making excuses about distractions, and applying the “forgetful” label are typical reactions when we can’t remember. Moreover, these actions lead to feeling even worse about failed memory recall and begin a vicious circle of negative actions and feelings. The whole cycle sounds exhausting just thinking about it!
I have some exciting information to share concerning poor memory function. Did you know that your emotional state impacts how you store information in your memories? Your emotions change how long-term memories are stored and recalled. Your mood affects how well you can remember something. If you are in a positive mindset, it becomes easier to store and recall information versus when you are not. In short, your emotional state plays a critical role in all memory functions, and we should be more mindful of it for peace of mind.
Knowing the connection between mood and memory is inspiring, especially when you apply how you can control it. It is lovely to recall information when we need it. Doing so makes us feel good about ourselves and our position within the task creating the need to remember something. This positive cycle of emotion is often described as exhilarating and often produces an increase in several other things we want more of regularly. Things like motivation, creativity, and happiness are a few of those highly desired states of being.
Even more powerful is how positive emotions flip their negative counterparts. Remember that things like stress, worry, and anxiousness impact us negatively in more ways than just the obvious. The more upset and negative someone will increase the difficulty of remembering the things they want to remember. An example is the missing part of the work project that is forgotten in the completion process. Equally true is the difficulty of being positive amid negative influences and causes, and the answer for “how do we do this” is simple.
Hypnosis helps with the behavioral changes needed to focus on the positive during times of adversity. Remember that hypnosis is a behavioral change technique that enables you to achieve anything you desire. Equally important are these desired changes happening with an automatic flavor to them. Your desire to be positive is a reflex that must be trained, which will also help improve your memory on multiple fronts. All in all, it is a level of excellence that exists within us if we can reach it.
