Imagine this situation – hey, while coming, please get me a cup of coffee. After some time, where is my coffee? You: Oops, I forgot! “Where did I leave my car keys?” “Did I lock the door?” It is so embarrassing when you have a habit of forgetting things and that creates a messy situation and wastes a lot of time too.
How often does this happen with you in your everyday life? TO be quite honest with you, it happens most of the time with me! We all tend to forget certain things irrespective of multiple reminders. But fret not, because here are some real cool tips that will help you to NOT forget the everyday things.
From now You Will Never Forget Everyday Things
Fix Places For Each Item
Now, in your house why do you have to keep everything here and there? The best way to remember these everyday things is to fix places for each item. For instance, let your car and house key go up on that key holder and not anywhere else. Your laptop will go on the side shelf of your bedroom along with the important office file. This way you will know where each thing is and you will end up remembering everything.
Recollect The Sequence
If you tend to forget something, rewind the entire episode mentally in your mind. Go back in time and recollect the entire sequence. I walked in; I switched on the light and then recollect all small and big things because you never know which action will remind you of the lost item.
Associate Things With Other Important Things
If you tend to forget things, names and people easily, then why not associate them with other things that you remember. For example, if you meet a person whose name is Roger, why not relate him to the famous Rodger Federer (I know it is almost impossible to compare the super amazing Mr. Federer with anybody else), but just for the sake of remembering names, try to associate people and things like this.Some amazing ways to memorize faster and more easily than ever.
Paying Attention Is The Key
If you are really bad at remembering names, it is your chance to change that. While introductions are happening, why don’t you focus on the names instead of wandering what will be your next action item after the introductions? Paying attention and focusing on one thing at a time makes your brain remember things.
Repeat, Repeat And Repeat
If you tend to forget your TO-DO list every time, instead of making notes of it at multiple places, repeat the tasks that are due. Like, if you have to pick up your clothes from laundry, in the morning – repeat it multiple times in your head. This makes your brain remember it.
Make It a Routine
So if you have to carry your laptop, handkerchief and tiffin everyday to office, make it a routine to pick up your handkerchief first, then put your tiffin your bag and then pick up the laptop in the end. When you practice this routine every day, you will tend to forget it less.
Tame Your Brain
If you let your brain dominate, you will keep forgetting always! ‘I can’t help it dude! I forget easily!’ if you let your brain believe in this theory, you will never be able to remember stuff. So, tame your brain in such a way that every time you forget something, you challenge your brain more – challenge it to think more, to remember more and in case you still forget, challenge it recollect it!
These are few genuine hacks which will ensure that from now you will never forget everyday things. Try one of these or a combination of these from today! One more easy way of making your brain focus is by playing some really cool brain games like SUDOKU, puzzles, and other find the object games – these games make your brain run to catch hold of trivial things.
