Memory is the most important thing that we use on a daily basis. Whether you have a good or bad memory, you’re still using it.

No doubt some people have good memory than others but still to some extent everyone uses it daily.

You use memory while driving when going to your office by recalling the road or the way that leads to your office and in many other sorts of things.

Although there are different types of memory like short term memory and long term memory. Both have their own advantages and disadvantages but in this post, I’m going to give you seven reasons why memory is important and how having a good memory can help you in improving your life.

1) Improved social interaction

People love it when someone calls them with their names. Everyone wants to listen to his/her name from others. So if you have a good memory and you can recall other people’s name then they will become your friends quickly and will be more open to you than others.

Similarly, if you could remember the birth dates of your loved ones and if you wish them on time, your social life could be improved significantly.

2) Get good grades in examinations

If you are a student and have a good memory then you will be able to memorize your course material much easily and quickly. Thus saving you a lot of time and energy which you can utilize to do many other things.

In exams, you can recall that information much more quickly and put that on paper and the end result would be good grades.

This skill can help you in all sorts of exams, tests, vivas, and even in your job interviews.

3) Learn new skills quickly

No matter whether you are learning new software or any other skill. Always you have to remember many things. If you are good at memorizing then you will be able to learn any new skill in a shorter time than others.

This will help you to learn multiple skills which will help you to earn more and will also boost your confidence.

4) Learning a new language becomes fun

If you want to learn a new language then memory can help you in achieving this goal. When you learn a new language, first of all, you have to learn new words and simple sentences and then you move on to more complex words and sentences.

If you can remember basic words and sentences with ease then you are very near to your goals. You can become fluent in any language in much less time. Learning a new language can help you in connecting with more people from diverse backgrounds.

5) Recall information quickly

Sometimes you need to recall some information quickly. For example, let’s suppose you lost your phone and now you have to call someone to help you get out of this situation. If you had a good memory then you will be able to recall their number and call them for help.

There may be many other situations, in which you may need to recall some information when you don’t have access to Google. Then at that time, your memory will help you.

6) Comprehend the information that you read

If you are reading an article and you have a good memory then you’ll be able to comprehend that article/information more quickly. You won’t have to read an article or information multiple times and thus it will save your time and you can read and understand more in less time.

7) Give speeches with confidence

Good memory can help you in delivering your speeches with confidence. During your speech, you won’t have to look at your notes again and again. You will be speaking in a flow that will catch the attention of your audience. They will engage more with your speech and you will be better able to convey your message.


So these were some of the reasons why memory is important. Having a good memory can save you from a lot of troubles and can help you save your time.
