Do you want to boost your brain power and learn things quicker? This video will show you an ancient secret to boost your memory.
Thousands of years ago, the Greek poet Simonides discovered how to boost your memory by connecting it with your much more powerful visual memory. When a building collapsed, he was able to identify the victims by visually remembering where each person had sat right before the disaster.
You can quickly boost your memory by associating it with physical surroundings. In the video I show how I memorized a set of vocabulary words by associating them with various stops on my bike ride.
Anyone can do this any time, at any age. If you walk to your friend's house one time, you'll be able to find your way back. But if you read a chapter of your biology textbook, you'll forget most of it unless you do something to boost your memory.
Try putting the information you need to learn into your walk. If you walk four blocks, each one could represent one of the four base pairs that make up DNA. Or perhaps you place an animal in each of the trees you see growing in the street. There are a lot of ways to do this, as I show in the video.
This video was intended for my personal website, where I'm trying to help people improve themselves. The bicycle, a fast vehicle that runs entirely on human power, is a great metaphor for what you can achieve. It's also a tool to help you get there. You can check out Bicycle Freedom if you're interested in learning more.
In the meantime, I'm sharing this video because it will help you even if you are not a bicyclist. I hope it's helpful.
