Short term memories

By | October 15, 2016

“Oh I feel that I have missed something. I am quite sure; I have left something unattended in my memory. Can’t recollect it.. But it was something really important”

Many a times, I faced this situation.. Even facing now.. But nowadays, seems the frequency got a little reduced 😉

My secret, “first of all notice the vital thing and remind myself that I have an important thing to do, secondly link it to an awkward thing and drop it in on my way” shhhhhhhh…

So let us know how you are coming out of this memory problem..?

    Sure is a problem 🙂 Kind of the proverb in bengali “Pet e asche kintu mukhe asche na”. You know in your gut there’s something important but you just can’t say it.

    Haha. . Happens a lot with me too. . There is something important to do but we don’t remember what it is. . Haha. . Even though we try to link events with events but no use.
    It is better to write down at the moment when we feel something important and not leaving to it to memory that it will remind us in future. . 😉

    Have a beautiful weekend, Akhila. . 🙂

        I mean sometimes we are happy from inside due to some incedent. That happiness is steel intact but we forget reason behind that happiness 🙂

    To avoid that I create a check list and add things every time they cross my mind so I don’t forget things that are important

            I am happy that wordpress is not deleting my site on whims and fancy so i can tolerate other small issues like comments, notifications etc 🙂

    I read a wonderful book that can help with memory stuff. It’s primarily about Dementia/Alzheimers, but I got some tips for simple memory stuff.

    🙂 I read a short article once which advised me not to worry about forgetting little things like where I put my car keys – it suggested that the forgetfulness would only be a problem if I picked up the car keys and thought ‘what are these for?’. 🙂 I like reading your posts and the comments by your followers. Thanks for sharing.
