*Memory Enhanced by a Simple 10 min **Break After Reading*
Psychologists have found that brief resting periods after learning aids
memory. In studies, when people take a little rest after learning, say, a
string of numbers, they do better in recall than other people who’ve been
given another task straight away.
It is thought that this little rest helps consolidate the memory, making it
easier to retrieve. On the other hand if you go straight on to another
task, the memory doesn’t have a chance to solidify.
