Regular exercise keeps your brain active.Try to develop new skills that are not just physical but also involve thought process. Playing musical instruments and solving mind puzzles, such as crosswords and Sudoku daily will be helpful in this context.

Fibrous fruits and vegetables, broccoli, spinach, berries, blueberries and asparagus are considered good brain foods.You may also take supplements such as thiamine, vitamin E, vitamin B12, and vitamin B6 pills.
Diets rich in anti oxidants are also known to increase memory power.

Change Your Learning Style

Learning is a process that requires the complete involvement of your brain. Try to find a new way by which you can remember things easily. Some people find it easy to memorize the facts visually. While others note down what they have learnt in their mind by listening. In the first case, you may use pictures or video to learn by heart. In the second case, you may use audio tapes for the purpose.
In order to memorize things, you have to repeat them time to time. Focus on your subject and then repeat the words. Either loudly or silently. This will help you register it in your mind.

Group Things Together

It might be difficult to memorize a list of random things at a time. Instead, you can group the similar things together. So that you remember everything that has been enlisted, categorize individual things from a list and relate each element to the other. This way, you will be able to memorize even a long list very easily.
But, by repeating things many times will not prove helpful in memorizing it, without paying full attention.Therefore, it is very important to focus on the things you learn, to retain them in your thoughts for a long time.

It helps to use a mnemonic device too, if I may add, like the link and peg systems. Thanks for the share, shreeja.
