How can you improve your memory? It’s a question I get all the time and Bill and I at Mindwerx are now in the planning process for running the 2016 Australian Memory Championship, while I’ve also been helping get the World Memory Championship statistics updated. In addition of course we’ve been updating the Mindwerx website and our web guy Troy in particular hasn’t been getting much sleep.
I remember Scott Hagwood, the American Memory Champ saying that if he doesn’t get enough sleep the night before an event, he usually does poorly performing memory feats on television or in competition.
Maybe he should have taken a Nap?!

A short daytime nap could improve memory by five-fold, study finds
We have all been there; whether in class at school or a meeting at work, sometimes it feels as if our brain just gives up and leaves the building. But according to a new study by researchers from Saarland University in Germany, a short daytime nap could significantly boost brain power.
Publishing their findings in the journal Neurobiology of Learning and Memory, the team reveals that a sleep of around 45-60 minutes could improve learning and memory by five-fold.
