Stop!

Tourist reading Nuestro Diario from Guatemala

After you've finished reading, stop! If you want to remember what you were reading, that is; apparently a ten minute break after reading allows your memory to consolidate and you remember what you've read much better - even a week later.

You can read about it on PsyBlog.

I wonder if eating chocolate enhances the effect. I'm willing to test out the theory - for the benefit of science, obviously. Does anyone else want to test the chocolate theory with me?

Sorry, I've forgotten what you said.

Kitty, we'll have to work out how to conduct the experiment once we know how many people we have taking part. Meanwhile, maybe you ought to get into training on the chocolate-eating.

Nicola, you're obviously suffering from severe chocolate deprivation.

Yes, let's start training immediately.
