143: How to Remember Jokes

143: How to Remember Jokes

2019-08-1200:19:544

How do you memorize jokes? How many times have you wanted to remember a joke, but you just can’t?  Being able to remember a joke is a great conversation starter, and it’s also great for your brain. But for some reason, jokes are hard to remember for many of us, and we end up ruin the fun even when we try.  This episode is a segment from my recent Instagram Live, where I answer questions we get from our Kwik Brain Community. And as someone who loves humor, this is one of my favorite topics. In today’s episode, I’ll share you with a couple of memory jokes and some simple tips to remember them.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

What should you know about women’s brains?  The historical conception that male brains are superior to female brains is finally being overturned—but while there is no difference in our intelligence, there are subtle structural differences in female brains that can heighten the risk of health conditions for women, including Alzheimer’s disease, migraines, and depression. Few people are aware of this, so raising awareness and helping people to feel more comfortable seeking assistance with these types of health concerns is incredibly important.  An international researcher in Alzheimer’s prevention, author of the incredible book Brain Food, and a nutrition expert and neuroscientist, today’s guest Lisa Mosconi has years of invaluable nutrition and neuroscience knowledge from a career spent working to prevent brain deterioration.  You can check out my previous episode with Lisa here: Episode 88: Eating For Your Brain with Dr. Lisa Mosconi  In this episode, we’ll explain the differences between female and male brains, including differences in hormones and health risks. We’ll explain some ways you can become more aware of women’s brain health, and explain what a typical brain scan might look like for a woman experiencing a decline in brain health. Finally, we’ll tell you why you should take care of yourself in the busiest decades of your life, and why you (or the women in your life) should never be ashamed of seeking out health treatment.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

How can you use math to build your mental fitness?  People often talk about wanting to increase their physical fitness—they want to be more flexible, agile, and have more energy, but what about being mentally fit? One of the greatest exercises we can do to build our mental fitness is math. Aside from boosting our brainpower, math can also build our confidence, make us feel capable, and help us to tackle obstacles in other areas of our lives.  You might know Danica from her role as Winnie Cooper in Wonder Years, but what you might not know is that in addition to her lifelong acting career, Danica is an internationally-recognized mathematician, New York Times best-selling author and advocate for math education.  In this conversation, we explain how you can build mental fitness through math, and gain confidence that nobody will be able to take from you. We’ll talk about how math can help you to overcome life’s obstacles and feel more capable. Lastly, we’ll tell how you can rebrand math so it is no longer something to fear.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

Can travel make you smarter? It’s a vacation season and we have a special episode for you today!  Traveling boosts your brain more than you think. Whether you’re going on a smaller adventure like crossing your own city or flying to a country you’ve never visited before, traveling triggers growth, self-belief, and strength in your mind.  Today’s guest Aggie is a travel blogger, adventurer, storyteller, and upcoming author. Her popular Instagram travel account Travel In Her Shoes has almost 900,000 followers, and she’s here to tell us how we can follow in her footsteps.  In this conversation, Aggie will tell us about what led her to start traveling the world, and how travel changed her brain. We’ll talk about what travel can teach you, and how you can apply the benefits of traveling to your life without having to travel across the globe.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

How do you get unstuck? Think about an area of your life where you feel held back. It could be your career, your relationships, your health, or something from your day to day life. You’re not achieving the results you want and feel like you haven’t made any progress.  It is possible to free yourself and get the results you desire. By uplifting yourself, looking at the truth of the situation, seeking knowledge and caring for yourself, you can get unstuck and keep moving towards the outcome you want.  In this episode, I’ll explain how to boost your creativity and increase your ability to think divergently—to come up with lots of new ideas. I’ll take you through an acronym you can use to set yourself free whenever you’re feeling stuck, and help you get back on the path to getting the results you deserve.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

The process of thinking is nothing but asking and answering questions. Our thinking changes the shape of our lives, so the questions we ask ourselves matter, whether it’s “how can I learn this?” or “how can I get healthier?” We’re asking ourselves questions all the time, but we’re often not conscious of them and how they impact our behavior. Used properly, questions are a useful tool to take the knowledge and turn it into action.  In this episode, you’ll hear from my friends at the Mindpump Media Podcast and how you can uncover the questions you might not have been aware you were asking yourself, and how to use them to effect change in your life—and.  We also talk about how our brain chooses what subjects to focus on, how our memories work, and quick tips for learning and notetaking. I’ll take you through 3 quick questions to help you turn knowledge into action, then explain how you can work out what the dominant question in your life is.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

You might associate complaining with negativity, but when used in the right way, complaints can be a powerful tool to improve our relationships, achieve results and effect meaningful change in the world around us. The key is learning how to do it right—which is why we have Guy here to teach us a simple formula to effectively bring up complaints in a way that will encourage positive resolution rather than unhelpful arguments.  If you have issues in your life that are bringing you discomfort, and you’ve previously been reluctant to bring them up with the people involved for fear of starting a conflict, today’s episode will help you negotiate that process with confidence.  Guy’s books have sold millions of copies and been translated into 26 different languages, and his TED Talks have been seen by people all over the world.  In this conversation, we talk about the difference between venting and complaining, how to choose which issues to complain about, and how to avoid a complaining victim mentality. Guy will then explain why it’s important to complain in a constructive way, and take us through a formula you can use to achieve a positive end result from a complaint.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

The traditional story about aging is that as we age, we slow down, become trapped in our habits, and forget to play. The good news is that we can avoid this, and we can all learn to use our brains to change our age. Who doesn’t want to live longer? And not only longer, but better?  I’ve talked before on the podcast about the study of nuns published by Time magazine—all of them were living youthfully despite being aged 90 and above—and the secrets to their longevity were their gratitude, faith and their dedication to lifelong learning. They were lifelong learners—just like you and me! In today’s episode, I’ll remind you to schedule time to build your mental fitness, speak about the power of imagination to literally change the way you age, and the importance of retaining playfulness in your life as you grow older. I’ll take you through the 10 steps to healthy aging, and ask you to consider your progress on each step.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

How do you master your sleep?  When I ask the Kwik Brain community about sleep, I usually get polarized answers—either people sleep great and wake up refreshed, or they really struggle with falling and staying asleep, and wake exhausted.  What effect does your sleep pattern have on your mental acuity? On your mental performance? Your memory? If you want to know how to get a good night’s sleep so you can rest and recover, then this episode is for you!  We have 3 experts on today’s show to share their top tips for improving your sleep. Don’t forget to check out the full Kwik Brain episodes with our experts via the links!  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

You’ve heard me talk before on the show about the myth of knowledge being power—we know that it only becomes a power when we use it.  So today’s episode is designed to help you use your power, and get what you want by doing it.  Many of us spend our days telling ourselves we’re not good enough and not smart enough—or we give our power to things outside of us, and passively go through our days rather than reminding ourselves of our power and responsibility.  In today’s episode, I’ll help you to break yourself out of passive thinking, and get you doing rather than just dreaming. I’ll give you some tips to remind yourself of your power, tell you how to write to-do lists that will change the shape of your day, and shift your thinking from wishful thinking to actively pursuing your dreams.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

Not sure where you're from but in the USA you can send a stool sample to your local university extension office and for a nominal fee they will give you a report on the stool that you can use to improve it for your intended purpose. Two key things to look for is the existing organic matter content and cation exchange capacity. This is always a good thing to do before doing major work for a lawn or garden.

Hey Jim, first off, thanks for the amazing work you do. Love your podcast 'Kwik Brain'. What book titles can you strongly recommend I read on everything brain related? I am fascinated with the mind and it's workings, and all things brain. Will really appreciate if you provide me a list of some, if not all your favourites. Thanks!

Instead of asking people what should you sell, instead ask what's your greatest challenge in your past of that particular area
