Quick 5 Minute Names Workout | Memory Workouts #1

This is a new series to help people start improving their memories with clear exercises/workouts! These workouts are meant to be short so people can fit them easily in their schedule and be consistent with practicing memory techniques. Check out the method for memorizing names that goes with this workout:

The first workout deals with Names (My favorite…NOT haha). If you don’t go through all the names or images in the given time, you don’t need to worry. The goal is to improve each time you do this workout! This workout will help you create images for names and recall names correctly from your images.

Step #1
You will have 120 random names given to you. Your goal is to create as many images for as many names as possible in 2 minutes. It is okay if you don’t go through all the names in the time given. You need to write the images you create for the names because your images will be used in the next step. Example for step #1: Karen - Carrot

Step #2
You need to cover the names for this next part so you have no hints or help. You will give yourself 2 minutes to go through your images and try to recall the name the image is suppose to represent. You should write the name down for each image. It is okay if you don’t attempt to recall all the names in the 2 minutes. Example step #2: Pancake - Hank (Maybe?)

Step #3
For the last minute, you will check if the names you recalled matched the original name or not.

Recap of workout:
