Boost Your Brain and Memory by Singing

Of the many memory hacks and techniques available to us to boost our brains, this one might be the most enjoyable: Learn a new song and sing.

The Under 30 CEO blog notes two benefits to using song. The first is singing can help you solve problems more effectively because it exercises the right side of your brain:

Ever notice how it's easier to rhyme words when you sing them rather than speak them? It's because you've tapped into the pattern recognition power of the right side of the brain. This will make you a more effective problem-solver.

The second technique is to try to memorize the lyrics to a new song. Like memorizing other new things, this will boost the level of acetylcholine , which is associated with memory, in your brain.

Music has been shown to be a powerful memory retention tool and good for the brain overall and singing can boost your mood as well .
