I’ve been away with work for the past couple of days, so this post is a wee “catch-up” on all my memory palace news! I’ve spent 2-3 minutes every day for the last 6 days building and extending a memory palace for the purpose of memorising the periodic table of elements.
Over the course of the last 6 days, I’ve spent about 20 minutes in total building my palace and (so far!) there seems to be very little effort required in terms of “committing” anything to memory. If you want to try this technique, my top tips would be :
1. Know the layout of your palace inside-out (I’m using my own house).
2. Create exceptionally memorable images.
3. Be fully present while you are decorating your palace (I actually think that this is the key to this whole technique!)
Here’s what happened today :
I am just going outside and may be some time 🙂 .
