The Memory Palace

Hello Guys, today we are here to teach you a technique known as the memory Palace. You could use it to store a list of items in a more fun way than you have been doing. It would be quite lengthy so read on and have fun.

Let’s say you want to remember a 5 item grocery list consisting of:

1. Banana
2. Tomatoes
3. Meat
4. Egg
5. Water

NB: You need to actually visualize the following in your mind for
it to work.
But instead of doing that through repetition, you imagine trying to open your
front door at home, your key falls from your pocket and in an attempt to pick it
up, the key began to grow larger and larger until it developed legs to walk. This key
stood in front of you, obviously taller in height now and opens the door for you by
itself and as you enter through the front door, you stepped on something soft and
when you checked it was a banana someone had left there. Walking into your
living room you saw a box with the inscription vegetables. You deepen your hand
into it only to find out there is an unripe tomato. Finally you enter your kitchen
and to your amazement you realize that ants have set up a complete factory with
some cutting meat, others carrying eggs and some fetching water. The most
interesting part is as these ants notice your present they all scattered. You have to
exaggerate the visuals.
That was a long piece up there. The technique used above is known as the memory
palace. What you did there, you created a memory palace which fired a lot of
sensory neurons in the process. With time you would be able to create more solid
ones that would fire neurons for all five senses. We would explore these techniques
in greater detail. You succeeded in creating a web of neurons which link to one
another. When you memorize this way, it becomes difficult to forget what you
have learn. Do you take notes while you learn for future reference? Now, with the
following memory hacks all you may need is to document the way you stored that
information in your notes instead of writing the information itself on paper. For
ex, when you are trying to remember the 5 item list above, all you have to do is to
remember how you stored it and remembering one scene would lead to another
and another and before you know it, you would have remembered the entire list in
order. This is far useful, since the memory stays for a very long time.
