NEVER LOSE YOUR KEYS AGAIN!
“Forgetting is about distraction,” says Judy Marcus, who’s spent 20 years as a memory expert. “To remember, you have to remember to remember.” So besides putting your keys in the same place (you meant to do that, right?), create a memory reminder: Pause on your top step so you don’t open the front door on autopilot and throw the keys anywhere. Or associate a wind chime in your kitchen with the need to place the keys in the bowl on the counter. You can do this with your phone, too: When you set it down, take a split second to notice what it’s next to so you can envision it when you’re all, “What on earth? I just had it!”
I use Google calendar and sync that to my iphone calendar apps. I have a calendar for myself, my husband, my son, and soon for my girl as well. I need to synchronize everyone’s schedule because we have no yaya, so coordination becomes an issue. My husband has meetings, gigs, training. My son has two sports, play dates, etc. It makes me feel organized and lessens the asking/ nagging because everything is there.” —Candice Quimpo, mom of two, from Quezon City
