Guinness Record Holder for Memory Shares Holiday Hacks with Tips to Remember Names & Faces at Parties  Holiday forgetfulness is a common issue that many of us face. Between the additional errands, shopping, travel, and prep, it's totally understandable why our stress levels rise and things fall through the cracks. In addition to just missing "to-do list" items, festive forgetfulness can also emerge in a more embarrassing way. The holidays bring plenty of opportunities to experience the excruciatingly-awkward, social situation of not being able to remember an acquaintance’s name.Luckily, Guinness Record Holder for Greatest Memory, Dave Farrow is sharing tips to improve your recall and memory this holiday season!"How often have you met someone and 5 seconds later you forget their name? People are always thinking about the next thing to say to avoid awkward conversation so names go in one ear and out the other..."...says Farrow who explains that remembering a person's face relies on recognition, while their name is a matter of recall. Although Farrow has been called 'the walking encyclopedia' for his ability to remember facts and trivia, he has no inborn gift for memory. In fact, he has severe dyslexia and ADHD and developed a system for memorizing to help combat these issues. "The holidays are filled with distractions and stress which can impact how the brain processes information and stores memories," says Farrow. If you are stressed during an event, (like your company's holiday party) you may have more difficulty accurately remembering the details of the event later (like the name of your boss's wife who you met at last year's holiday party.) Whether it is a work event or a friend’s get-together, you’ll want to be on top of your name-remembering game. You have considerable control over your own brain function since much depends on what you experience, and how you use your brain. Eating healthy, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep play a big role in our brain function and how much we remember. It's never too late to make the conscious decision to adopt a more brain-fit lifestyle. This will allow the brain to heal, reset, and ultimately put your mind at ease in social situations.  Dave Farrow has fascinating information on the brain and memory. He is sharing tips and actionable advice people can use to combat festive forgetfulness and improve memory over the holidays. IN AN INTERVIEW OR ARTICLE, DAVE FARROW CAN:Share holiday brain hacks to combat festive forgetfulness and improve memoryGive simple tips to help you remember names and faces at holiday parties and eventsExplain the science behind memory and recallPerform live, on-air, memory demonstrations ABOUT DAVE FARROW:Dave Farrow is the two-time Guinness World Record holder for greatest memory.
