I use Memory Techniques everyday in real life situations-from my office work to my personal life! Using mnemonic technique in all important aspects of my life has become my second nature,it seems!
However,I didn’t realize that there are two areas of my life I would actually be successfully apply mnemonics techniques. But I did. It was a surprise for me!
The first one is,I am a stock trader. And it is very important for a stock trader to not only memorize chart patterns,but also to analyise the important trades he took. The problem for me was that I couldn’t solve the problem of ‘memorizing’ the charts and the movement of a stock that I entered and exited. Last month,quite unexpectedly,I could solve the problem of memorizing the movement of a stock and its chart! I found it amazing. I can memorize any stock movement now and all the steps I took during my trade of that stock!
The second one is,I suddenly discovered that I can apply ‘mnemonic’ techniques during Mindful Meditation. It is strange! For example,my mind wanders from the object of meditation. I label the distraction and put it somewhere in my Memory Palace. This way,I get less distracted from the object of meditation. Also,I can store my experiences(distractions,losing focus,sensations,etc) of meditation in my MP and review the ‘issues’ later,if I want to. Using “Memory Palace” during meditation seems to have increased my attention. Though,I am still experimenting about if I can apply mnemonics techniques to enhance my meditaton experience, this is an unexpected and quite amazing experience for me,as a long term meditatior!!!
