Our brain has a great capacity to remember things, however, there are many techniques you can use to help. One of these techniques is mind maps.
They can be used to help us remember a lot of different information. Mind maps are a visual aid. As the brain rests up to 40% on vision to recall information that makes this very efficient technique. You can also use The Raikov effect for skills training.
The cards also undertake the left side of the brain which is the logical and analytical part of the brain and the right side controls our creative process.
Mind maps have been created and developed by Tony Buzan and he has written books on the subject and other books that are related to the development of your brain.
Mind Maps information using images arranged, colors and words to allow the brain to recall that information easily and quickly at a later date.
To create a map to start with the main word or image. Take a blank sheet of paper and write the word or picture in the center of the page.
Draw a circle around the keyword or image. This center is that you will work from. The next step uses a circle connecting lines to other words or images that are relevant to the main keyword in the center.
You can then create multiple lines of those keywords in combination with other keywords or images to build your map.
The key is variety. More words, images and colors you use the better you'll be able to remember and recall information.
