I first heard about mind palaces through BBC’s Sherlock. I thought the concept sounded fascinating – being able to store memories in special places in my mind to access whenever I willed. I did some research out of curiosity, and found that memory’s palaces are a real thing, and have been around for hundreds of years. I rounded up a group of videos I found by a youtuber named Eddy Hood which really helped me get started on my own mind palace. They focus on a few different techniques which will help you strengthen your memory. I encourage you to do additional research on your own! My mind palace is growing daily, and I already find it indispensable.
(I apologize for having so many short posts lately. I have been incredibly busy. I am planning on doing a much longer article very soon though!)
