Memory Improvement – Why Is Your Memory Better in the Morning?

Memory Improvement – Simple Memory Secret #3

When it comes to memory improvement, can the time of day actually affect your memory?

It’s an interesting question, because if you’re like most people, at some point you’ve probably had the following experience:

You wake up in the morning, and before you head out for the day you remember you need to do something in the afternoon.

But later that day the afternoon comes and goes…

And it’s not until you’re on your way home when you realize:


When that happens, is this just a case of too much going on in your life?

OR does the time of day ACTUALLY affect your memory?

Here’s the story…

Morning Memory vs. Afternoon Memory

Dr. Jane Oakhill, a psychologist at the University of Sussex has conducted a number of experiments to determine whether time of day affects your memory.

And what she’s discovered might come as a surprise to you:

Because it turns out we process two types of memory – Declarative and Semantic – differently throughout the day.

In the morning we tend to be better at Declarative Memory tasks – which is our ability to recall exact details, like names, places, dates and facts.

However in the afternoon, our brain is better at Semantic Memory tasks – our ability to integrate new information with what we already know and make it meaningful.

So what that means is this:

When you’re planning out your day, you want to study NEW material earlier in the day. And use the afternoon to integrate new knowledge into what you already know.

In other words, the morning is best for researching information. And the afternoon is better for synthesizing and applying it.

So, here’s how to structure your day…

For Your Memory: The Best Day Ever…

Because your brain tends to be sharpest at short-term & declarative memory tasks in the morning, and more efficient performing semantic processes in the afternoon, here’s a simple breakdown of how you might structure your day for maximum results:

8:00 AM – 12:00 PM is the best time of the day for test-review, problem-solving, report-writing, and math-oriented work.

12:00 PM – 2:00 PM is best for movement-oriented tasks, like filing away paperwork, doing errands, and practicing music and art.

2:00 PM – 6:00 PM is the best time of day for reading-heavy tasks like studying literature and history.

(Now, of course because some of us tend to be “morning people” and others tend to be “night people” there’s a 2-3 hour variance depending on where you fall on that spectrum…)

What to Do Next:

Okay, so this is all fine and good, right?

“I was skeptical this course could actually deliver…
But after giving it a shot, I could not have been more pleasantly surprised!"
If you’re reading this right now thinking “Is this course for real?” before I decided to purchase this program, I was somewhat skeptical it could actually deliver on the claims it made.

Especially because I’ve read a number of memory books out there, including…

…Dominic O’Brien, Kevin Trudeau, and even tried the Bruno Furst course back in the 1980s — and each time I was unimpressed with the methods they outlined.

Because for me, there always seemed to be a missing link between how to do something simple like “memorize a shopping list” and how to remember all the different types of information we encounter in our lives on a daily basis.

But after reading all the positive testimonials, and because of the money-back guarantee, I decided to give this course a shot.

And boy am I glad I did. Because for me, this course has been that missing link I’ve been searching for all these years..

Now, I don’t want to give everything away, but I can assure you if you apply the methods outlined in the course, you’ll most DEFINITELY increase your ability to retain almost anything you can imagine.

My big goal coming into this program was to memorize 500 Bible Verses, because I recently felt a calling to enter the Ministry. It only took me two fifteen minute sessions to memorize all 73 books of the Bible – in order and backwards (using the unique RocketMemory system).

And just this weekend alone, I’ve already memorized 65 Passages verbatim – including chapter and verse – using the exact methods outlined in the course. My husband still can’t believe it!
