Long-term memories through repetition
Micro-skill development (building functions in the brain)

Breaks help move memories from one level to the next
Use communication to reinforce learning
Explain and seek confirmation
The rubber ducking technique
Using emoji to punctuate words with emotion
What the ~ at the end of a Tweet or text means

Applying learning concepts to unlearning
The amygdala typically makes statements
The neocortex typically asks questions
Self-monitor and ask yourself questions to consciously replace habits
