For many centuries now, memory techniques have evolved in how they are used and the ways in which we learn them most effectively. You may recall that the process of remembering information is called ‘mnemonics’. We also know that mnemonics have been proven to be efficient and they are considered a powerful technique pertaining to memorization.
If you haven’t realized yet how our memory works, a person’s memory effectively functions to how it associates between objects and information. Knowing this, what we need to practice is our ability to narrow our focus and eventually associate or link an object with other information that enables us to remember what it is that we need to remember.
One way of remembering things easily is to rhyme words. How do you think we’re able to still recite riddles and nursery rhymes from our childhood much later in life? Just hearing this alone probably makes you remember one or two nursery rhymes you’ve learned. This also answers how toddlers are able to cope with the vast amount of information they have to learn at this very early stage of their lives. This is also the very reason why rhymes are considered to be very effective memory aids.
Another effective memory technique is the use of initials for the first letter of each word you need to remember. This memorization method is most effective for remembering lists. For example, for a group of items, you can take each first letter and make a word out of it. Remember ROY G. BIV? If you do, you’d know right away that this is not a name of a person, but it stands for the seven colors of the rainbow - Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet.
ASSIGN A MNEMONIC WORD
You don’t always need to create a name out of the initials from a set of items. You can also assign a word to help you easily recognize the associated items. But in some cases, there might be too few vowels versus the number of consonants. For instance, let’s say you are trying to remember you shopping list of the following items: pasta, rye, fish, cheese, and tortillas. Together they look like this: PRFCT. We can add the letter E to make your mnemonic word PERFECT. This way, when you’re out shopping, you can easily remember your mnemonic word, which will in turn, help you remember all of the items on your list.
GIVE IT A TRY
While memory deficiencies may increase with age, disease, stress, and other health factors, it’s important to understand that there are ways to improve your memorization skills. It may take a little practice and some creativity, but after you try it a couple of times and start seeing positive results, you’ll wonder how you ever got by without implementing these mnemonic techniques before!
