Memory tricks for finding lost items

This morning, I started looking for a certain amount of money I thought I'd put in my bag. In the search, I enlisted almost every member of my family and as the search progressed, I remembered once again how much I hate losing things.

It’s very annoying and throws you for a loop. This cannot be just in my personal experience because as someone who likes things a certain way at all times, the lack of control can be infuriating. I, however, more often than not find what I'm looking for when I search systematically.

If you habitually lose things, you will know that it is time-consuming and irritating trying to find them so let me help you with some tips that have helped me to overcome memory slips in the past.

In the course of the day, our brains multitask so much that some things are left to rote, or what I'll call peripheral memory. That’s why you can remember the most important things like when your co-worker annoyed you in perfect detail, but cannot remember where you kept your keys. To overcome these memory lapses, make a conscious effort to note where you drop things-especially those things you have had difficulty finding in the past.

Make notes to yourself. Those details you think you’ll never forget often get lost in your supposed steel trap of a brain. It is important and you need to call on it later, write it down. I carry a notebook and pen everywhere I go, it always comes in handy.

Retrace your steps, not just mentally but physically too. Literally, go to the end of the street and walk down as you would do on a normal day, taking note of your pauses and detours. Five times out of ten, you will find what you’re looking for.

Finally, you should also not discount the memories and help of others. When looking for something, ask the people in the immediate vicinity of the lost item. Their input could be what you need to fill in memory lapses and more often than not, find the missing item itself.

Happy hunting.
