#5 – Visualize and Associate
Instead of attempting to remember a word, remember a picture instead. Visualize an image in your mind related to the thing you need to remember. For example, to remember how old your cousin is going to be, visualize them blowing out a cake with their age written in the icing; or to remember an address, visualize a house with the address written on the building. Positive and in-depth visualizations work best.
