Kanji Hacks 漢字の覚え方

How to memorize kanji so they stick

木(き、ボク、モク)

Meaning: tree, wood

My hack: I try to imagine this one as a tree with droopy branches, like an evergreen with the top branches sticking straight out, and the lower ones hanging down low.

You could also imagine it as a palm tree if that works for you. You’ll have to shorten the trunk in your mind.
