The Essay Memorization Technique

The Essay Memorization Technique

There are two stages to this method:

  • The creation stage: the objective is to generate high quality essay plans for every possible title that you could receive in an exam.
  • The memorization stage: transfer all of these essay plans to memory by methodically using active recall, spaced repetition, spider diagrams, and flashcards.

Benefits of this technique: you will be able to memorize so many essay plans by the time your exam is due, that a lot of these will come up at the exam anyway (or similar ones, so you'll have the possibility to compile bits of the memorized information to generate great essays from scratch).

Everyone makes missteps and occasionally slips into risky behaviors.

But when you can’t stop a specific behavior, if it’s interfering with your ability to function properly in your daily life, or it’s negatively affecting your relationships, it’s time to pause and seek help.

How To Be Mindful At The Beach
  • Open up all of your senses: hearing, seeing, smelling, taste and touch.
  • Rest on the sand and relax your body of any physical tension.
  • Sit near the water. With your eyes closed, listen to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore.
  • Take a walk with your feet in the water. Feel the various textures of the sand as the waves soak into it.
  • Each time you inhale, smell the salty, fragrant air.
  • Take time to contemplate the horizon and take in the vastness of the seascape.
