Hello, I’m a kinesiologist, and today I’m giving you advice to improve your memory thanks to exercises inspired by Brain Gym. So what is Brain Gym? Well, it’s a set of coordination movements that will activate the balance and my two cerebral hemispheres. It’s a set of exercises that will activate all the cerebral functions through the movement; indeed, the Brain Gym will bring to learning all the physical aspects that are often forgotten. Good learning is learning that goes through the body, about what I see, what I hear, what I feel: memories will be created inside our cells, so Brain Gym will facilitate learning by making it fun, easy and pleasant the brain gym will allow you to increase brain connections, to relax, to open your heart, to get out of old patterns by facilitating openness to new solutions, new thoughts it will allow better coordination of your body and thus facilitate the learning to have a good memory it is initially necessary well to oxygenate our brain so that this last can work well. For this, I will offer you a straightforward breathing exercise. The goal is to inhale through your nose for 6 seconds, block your breath, then exhale through your mouth for 6 seconds, block your breath and then go back for six seconds of inspiration etc. to memorize well, our body needs to feel safe I am therefore going to invite you to do the following two exercises to reconnect with your inner security and thus facilitate memory.
I am going to invite you first to cross your legs then to cross your hands and you will bring your hands in front of you. You are going to place your tongue on the palate, you are going to close your eyes, and you are going to breathe quietly for about 30 seconds to a minute. Then you are going to uncross your legs, you are going to place your hands in front of your heart, the fingertips are touching, and in this position, without moving your head, you will look everywhere you can in the room. Now our body feels safe to follow the exercises and thus improve memory. Having a good memory is also having good listening, and yes, the ears are critical during any memorization process. I need to hear what the other is going to say, to hear my voice, that it either out loud or in my head when I recite a text that I need to know the exercise is simple, massage your ears as if you want to unroll them, enlarge them, emphasizing the lobes, the fact of you massaging the ears acts as a massage of the whole body, indeed at the level of the ears there are 400 acupressure points during these massages, I invite you to feel the heat at the level of the ears and to notice if you hear more and more no more noises even the smallest memory also requires working closely with my right brain and my left brain. We know that the right brain will activate the entire left side of my body. My left brain will activate the entire right side of my body,
so the exercises that I present to you later will allow you to activate the right brain and the left brain by coordinating my right side with my left side to coordinate my right brain with my left brain, I will perform coordination movements. My right arm comes to touch the left knee; my left arm comes to touch the right knee, and so on; in this way, I allow the right brain to work with my left brain if the two work together, I activate the whole process of memorization it may be that you need to memorize something, to remember something and you do not have the possibility of doing cross movements. Well I have a tip for you, I will invite you to think of a capital x or stare at a capital x. This will have the same effect as the cross movements. Looking at a capital x will allow my right brain and my left brain to work together that’s why I invite all teachers to place a big capital x in the classroom so that children can look at it like this will allow your students to concentrate better and therefore better learn one of the key exercises, Brain Gym and the lying 8. This exercise is very important to facilitate the collaboration between my right brain, not my left brain, the coordination between my hands my eyes. This exercise will help you fully possess your means to memorize well what you need to remember. For this, I invite you to place your arm outstretched in front of you, thumb up, and you will draw the sign of infinity, rather him 8 lying down, and you follow your hand with your eyes. You do the same thing on the left, and you go from the middle to the top, drawing a lying eight while looking at your fingers, and we breathe. You can do the same thing with both hands. The movement must be fluid as you all know the feet allow us to move forward, to get going, to get going and nothing like going outside to get out of the confusion, to get new ideas, that’s why I’m offering you one last exercise, which is going to be to walk around the room doing a lying 8. You will walk while reciting what you need to memorize.
Every time you stumble on a word or forget what you had to say, memorization is not yet efficient enough, and you will have to learn your text again and again. This article does not replace a session with a kinesiologist. I invite you to get closer to your therapist to deepen the memorization
