How MemStash can help you memorize anything!!

Throughout life Man will encounter situations where he comes across “something” outside of himself and there is a possibility that if he is able to absorb that thing into his being he may achieve growth. 

That something can be something abstract like an idea or something material like food.

As many of us already know learning is not as easy as eating a French fry. But on the other hand what we learn or don’t learn can decide what we can or can’t do later on in life! 

Memory is an important component of learning and the purpose of this article is to introduce the idea and a free method of memorizing using technology that we already use every day.

This particular technique exploits what is called Spaced repetition and is a learning technique that incorporates increasing intervals of time between subsequent review of previously learned material in order to exploit the psychological spacing effect.

Introducing MemStash, this is a FREE Online website.
Firstly you have to sign up for an account, after which they will tell you to drag a button to your browser. Once that is done you are set.(Don't worry there are pictures showing you what to do :))

How to use it: Whenever you come across anything you want to memorize, just highlight it on the web page using your mouse. Then click the "Stash This" bookmarklet, and MemStash will take care of the rest. 
You'll get three reminders via email or SMS within 10 minutes, 24 hours, and 7 days to remind you of it. 
All you then have to do is spend some time memorizing the material at those intervals and you will see that it sticks more easily than your earlier attempts at memorizing.
