Something I do, which is basically the tldr of this video, is associating the word with something strange and memorable. Creating a memory around the world.
This could be creating a story around the word.
This may seem time consuming, but it was a big help for me.

For example, Russian word: даст
this means to give in the future perfective tense. but it is also the slang for 'to give consent' (for sex).
This is quite a random connotation that will make it easier to remember.

Let's expand on this with the song Alyona dast:
Take one line for example
Она обожает секс (Let's say here you are learning the word обожать\to adore)
Well you will always remember that Alyona adores/obozhaet sex.
Hope you find it useful.
And remember to write the word down in a notebook and refer back to it occaisionally to keep it in your head.
