Close Your Eyes to Remember

New research: Adults who closed their eyes after watching videos of crime reenactments had 23% better recall of what they had seen and heard than those who kept their eyes open.

Explanation: Closing your eyes helps block distractions, improves focus and helps you visualize what you’re trying to remember about past events and experiences.
