This trick is great for helping you finish, memorize or understand long texts and boring paragraphs. For every paragraph on your hand-out or book that you need to finish, you place a gummy bear. Once you finish a paragraph, you get to eat the gummy bear. A sort of reward system. If gummy bears don’t work for you, you can always choose any treat you want. This method is not for the impatient though *coughs*.

Grab some paper, write everything you need to remember, like formulas, names, and dates then stick’em all over your room. Yes, that includes covering even your favorite band poster—for the mean time. This can be a complementary memory booster to your mnemonic devices. You’ll see it when you enter your room, when you wake up, when you study, or even when you’re daydreaming.

 

Trick 5: Sing your notes

Sounds funny, but this actually works. Don’t you ever wonder why it’s so easy to remember the lyrics to different popular songs, yet it’s so difficult to memorize all the elements of the periodic table? What gives?! Well why not combine them? The result? Listen to this.

Crunching numbers manually in your head can actually exercise your brain and even improve your memory and stock knowledge. So whenever you get the chance, when you commute to work or school or when you go grocery shopping, do your computations in your head. You’ll be surprised how easy it’ll be crunching numbers as time goes by.

Some people prefer re-writing their notes or formulas to be able to memorize them. They’d write down their formulas once, twice, thrice… or until they get the hang of it, or until it imprints into their brains.
