Starting a memory training journal here has been in the back of my mind for a while now. This is merely to hold myself accountable, but also to hear feedback from all of you. I feel of the wagon a bit with memory techniques since the pandmic and a few other life events, but now its time to bounce back.
Been so long since my last post, so I’ll reintroduce myself.
Hiya! I’m Zillia, 17 years of age, part-time lurker here, part-time professional overthinker.
I ordered Memory Craft as a little summer break treat. (It will hopefully be here in two weeks!) I read some reviews here, as well as the authors blog, and it got me inspired. This will be my first memory book that I will have a physical copy of, rather than just being a PDF file. I usually prefer physical if I deem it important enough.
So a few, short term goals I have in mind are:
Get into the habit of associating an object I’ve put down with the area its in, so no more me running around looking for my phone in the morning.
Memorize the Latin and Swedish names of all the major muscles and bones in the body (unsure if I will include the names of the carpal bones and such, but it would be a nice exercise in nestling? I think?)
Improve recall with names and faces. Even with the techniques, I still struggle to apply it when it’s needed.
But this journal is mainly for feedback, sharing my experience, and fighting my insecurity of posting here. I can’t say for certain I’ll update every day, but at least once every 3-4 days will probably be doable.
