My books about mnemonics and mindfulness

How did I learn about mnemonics?

My first experience with mnemonics was when I was about 7. I used to have keyboard lessons and that is where I learnt one of the first mnemonics I ever learned.

Every Good Boy Deserves Football

E, G, B, D, F

These are the lines on a musical stave.

Like all of us, I have been using mnemonics in a whole variety of ways ever since.

But I properly got into mnemonics when I realised what they were in about 2018. This is where I developed a much more conscious appreciation for what mnemonics are and how to use them.

How did I learn about mindfulness?

I got into mindfulness in a few ways. My Mum has always been interested in the teachings of Buddhism. My step-dad has an interest in Native American culture. I used to do a lot of sport as a kid. I also learned how to sing and play guitar; my Dad used to DJ regularly and sing whilst I was growing up, so some of that influence comes from him.

One of the important components of all these topics is breathing and/or visualisation; which are significant parts mindfulness.

How did I learn about meditation?

I learnt about meditation through the whole range of things I was exposed to growing up; sport, music, religion, entertainment. Because the common components of meditation are a large part of sport and entertainment I developed my own style through these areas.

Why did I create Mindfulness Mnemonics?

I created Mindfulness Mnemonics because I believe mindfulness and mnemonics together hold a lot of value that can benefit people. I love being creative and this platform allows me to do that as much or as little as I can or want.
