    Smart people have better lives, it has been proven and everyone knows it. They have better jobs, higher salaries, happier families, better health and they even look better – all because of their brain. But while you can’t do much about your IQ, there is one thing that you can improve a lot, and improve with simple techniques – it’s your memory!
