I posted my introduction maybe half a year ago, when I first got exposed to memory training through the book "Moonwalking with Einstein" and I wanted to learn more. Shortly after, my dayjob got very intense and I couldn't find time for anything outside work except for going to the gym occasionally.
Now finally, I have some more time to experiment with memory training. I’ll keep track of my progress on this blog.
To start with, as my very first memory challenge, I decided to learn the alphabet. I know, this sounds easy. But how many times have you been filing things and you had to say the whole alphabet in your mind to know if R comes before or after N? How cool would it be to know that instantly? Also, it’s a fun challenge to recite it backwards – something I’m not able to do right now.
I decided to try out the journey method for this. Using a journey I know well should make it easier to bring them in the right order. I’ll use my go-to running route for this.
To make it a litte bit more challenging than just memorizing letters, I’m trying to memorize the spelling alphabet of the country I live in.
So here’s the list:
I’ll let you know how I progress. Have a nice weekend!
