If you’re like me, you forget a lot of things. Once you remember, you eventually forget what you’ve forgotten.
If you’re having these sort of problems you can try these few things.
1. Write it down, now! You can take a piece of paper and attach it to your wall calendar or stick it in your journal, just make sure everything stays in the same place. When you remember something you’ve forgotten or have lost. Don’t be lazy and think you’ll remember it this time. The sooner your write it down the better.
2. Write down the location. When you find a lost item or whatever item and you’re like me and stick it in a “safe place” and so sure you’ll remember…write down on a list these items and where you end up placing them. That way later on, you can go to your list and find that item that you can’t seem to remember.
3. Designate! When you find something you’ve lost, put it in a certain container that is designated for the items you’re found and don’t want to lose again. That way when you’re trying to find wherever your new “safe place” is, it’ll just be this one spot. It’ll also help reduce clutter and keep you from putting random things places and never being about to find them again.
4. Become uncluttered! Go through your belongings thoroughly at least once a year to get rid of access stuff and to help you possibly find all the items you’ve been looking for.
I wouldn’t recommend trying to find your lost items or thoughts when you’re stressed or going through a rough time. If you can calm your nerves before ravaging through your house, you might be able to think clearly to maybe remember something. Just breath.
