5 Techniques to Strengthen Memory

5 Techniques to Strengthen Memory

1.   Repetition: Look at it, say it aloud and write it – many times.

2.   Association: Connect something you already know into groupings or relate unknown ideas to something you already know.

3.   Application: Apply the new information in a way that makes sense (to self, the world, etc.)

4.   Visualization: Create a mental image

5.   Mnemonics – tricks to recall (rhymes, songs, acronyms, abbreviations, silly sentences, etc)
