#195: Tricks For Sharpening Your Mind And Improving Your Memory


If you’re like me, you have the memory of a goldfish. Today’s episode is all about one question: Is your brain a muscle? I’m joined by Memory Coach and TikTok sensation Josh McCartney to answer these questions and many others. We talk about how you can sharpen your memory and improve your ability to remember names, numbers and pretty much anything else. Josh also teaches me some of his most popular brain training techniques – so you’ll learn how to remember names, recall numbers, and memorise facts quickly. If that sounds hokey to you, I was sceptical when interviewing him, but what Josh taught me REALLY helped me improve my memory. This may be one of the most interesting episodes yet, with Josh sharing some truly epic tricks to enhance your memory.
