1.What do you remember to do every day?

  Well, there are many things I have to remember to do every day. For example, after getting up in the morning, I need to take some simple physical exercises like doing some crunches and push-ups. Besides, another important thing that I should keep in mind is to teach my son to read the traditional Chinese poems in the evening.

  2. What helps people to remember things?

  Well, it’s kind of hard to say but people I know around me use the to-do-list apps in their mobile phones to help them remember what to do next; but maybe for others, they may probably write the urgent things down in the notebooks.

  3. Why do old people forget about things easily?

  Well, I guess it’s quite normal that people are more and more forgetful when they are becoming ageing. Apart from some negative emotional factors like stress and depression, elderly people are easier to forget things because of their normal ageing.

  4. Have you ever forgotten something important?

  Oh yes, I nearly forgot the birthday of a woman I liked last time. I once asked her what her birthday was, and told her I would send her a gift, but I just unbelievably forgot it until the evening that day. Fortunately I asked her out to dinner to celebrate with her.

  5.Why do people often forget small things?

  Well, I suppose it could be because they have a lot of things to think about or remember and sometimes it’s easy to remember big important things - but little things are more easily forgotten.

  6. What kind of things do you have to bring when you go out?

  Cell phone, of course. I take it with me wherever I go. And my keys, wallet, lipstick are also must-have items. I always put them together in a small handbag.

  7.Did you ever forget to bring something?

  I rarely forget to bring something as I have a good memory. But there was a time when I forgot to take my house key before I left home. What was worse, my parents were on their trip. So I had to stay with my friend for onenight.

  8.How do you remind yourself?

  I always write a note about what I should bring, and stick it to the refrigerator door. Everyday before I leave my home, I check it to find out what is missing. And it really works.

  9.Do you carry different things in the morning and in the evening?

  For me, there is no difference between the things carried in the morning and in the evening, almost the same.

  reminder app

  I often set up alerts on my (Apple) calendar events to remind me that I have to leave for an appointment

  My daily to-do list is written on a notepad at my desk and includes things like, “edit blog post” and “clean out fridge.” Eventually it all gets done.

  A hanging calendar that I lay flat on my desk with large enough spaces to write in reminders.
