ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A new tip for the more forgetful among us; read important information out loud. That’s according to a study from the University of Waterloo in Ontario. Lead author Noah Forrin says it beats out reading silently to yourself or listening someone else because.

Forrin says additionally, it could be applied to actions, such as telling yourself “I’m locking the door,” or “I’m taking my medicine now.”

“You have that auditory information of having heard yourself, you have the sort of motor information of having articulated the words, and it also makes it more personal, in a sense,” he says.
