Why you cant remember what you read
So you are starting to read and then 5-10 mins pass, and you look up. Nope, can’t remember a single thing you just read.
In this video, I share with you three memory hacks that will help you to remember what you read
Memory Hack 1:
Stories and Mnemonics
A mnemonic is a system like a pattern of letters, ideas, or associations which assists in remembering something. This could include a rule, a process, a list, and it could be really random.
An example of a rule is the Law of the one’and two’s that we use to remember the axial and appendicular skeleton. You can watch this here: https://youtu.be/WC93XbZQ97A
An example of a process is the digestive system where we use MOSSDJILA, and associate a story to remember the passage of food. You can watch this here: https://youtu.be/cPxaxjL_-jE
An example of a list can be seen in our SPACER acronym for remembering the skill-related components of fitness. You can watch this here: https://youtu.be/ItiR0SbVodE
You can make up your own stories and mnemonics/ acronyms, or you can use the ones we have prepared for you in our revision mastery series. This video shows you a quick snapshot of our Level 2 anatomy and physiology revision mastery series, where we link a story as a way of remembering the passage of air.

Memory Hack 2:
Set Up For Success!
It’s not just what you read, it’s how you read! If you are trying to cram revision into a busy day and are surrounded by distractions then setting yourself up for success could make a massive difference to your concentration levels and ability to retain info.
Try to take yourself away to a coffee shop, put your phone on airplane mode, and dedicate a specific amount of time to the studies, whereby it is your number one focus. And limit all distractions.
This also makes studying more enjoyable, and distinctly different from your normal surroundings. Which will help you stay calm and remember more easily.
Memory Hack 3:
We all Learn Differently.
Everyone has a unique learning style, and it is important to find what works for you rather than relying on what you have been given.
Most fitness professionals are kinesthetic or visual learners. A kinesthetic learner likes to write ou their notes, or draw items. They will often like to answer mock questions and learn from questioning. Whereas a visual learner, like strong visual images and diagrams, video, clearly labeled diagrams and clear steps to follow.
You can test your knowledge, and learn kinesthetically, using our 101 mock questions by downloading them here >> http://bit.ly/L3AP101mock
