#8 – Break It Down
Break it down. Instead or attempting to remember a long list of information, break it down into smaller categories or sections. Instead of 1234567890, think of 123-456-7890. Instead of one big, long grocery list, break it down into categories – dairy, produce, frozen.
This technique is also useful in remembering names. For example, to remember Sue, Kim, Sally, Beth, and Sarah, think of it as 3 S’s, 1 B, and 1 K.
