I’ve been teaching memory training seminars for 25+ years.
Recently my waitress asked me what I do for a living. When I told her memory training she asked for a quick memory training exercise.
I quickly explained to her the Mind Palace (also known as the memory palace) method of memorizing.
If you want to see a full explanation on the Mind Palace go here https://youtu.be/3vlpQHJ09do
Basically you use locations in rooms to memorize what you are wanting to recall.
It is more involved than this but this is the right idea.
I have used this memory training strategy to memorize as many as 7,000 words for 1 project. I used it to become the USA Memory Champion and set the record for the fastest to memorize a deck of cards in the USA.
Memory training is fun and effective and as you can see it can be learned very quickly.
