Memory Associa-ons for Memory Improvement www.thememorypage.net www.thememorypage.net
How Memory Works by Associa-on 1. Every piece of informa-on in our memory is connected to another piece in some way. Example: Apple Associa-on: red, round, sweet, teacher, tree, fruit. www.thememorypage.net
Why do we have a “bad” memory? • 1. Most don’t. We just don’t have the right associa-ons in place and don’t prac-ce. • 2. If no obvious associa-on exists, it will be hard to remember things. • SOLUTION: Create wacky associa-ons. www.thememorypage.net
Ac-vely Create Associa-ons • In order to improve memory ac-vely create associa-ons. • Some-mes easy: “Mr. Hill lives on a hill” • Other -mes be more crea-ve: Ex: Acronyms are a form of associa-on. Never Eat Soggy Waﬄes. (North, East, South, West) www.thememorypage.net
