I posted on Twitter a learning tip that was really popular:
Study in a place you’ve never been before (new library, coffee shop, park).
The new info will be forever associated with the memory of that place…and you’ll remember it more.
This works because your mind loves associating physical locations to your memories to anchor them.
Studying or reading a book in a nook of the house you don’t normally sit is powerful too.
Likewise, if you can’t remember something, mentally “return” to the place you were when you experienced the memory.
If you want to have a more memorable night, use this to your advantage.
Change locations throughout the night.
That’s why bar hopping can be memorable.
Even if you’re hanging out at home; change rooms throughout the night. Start with games in the dining room, them move to the living room for a show, then the basement for drinks…
The night will be a journey…you’ll have multiple locations to link the memories too.
