Forgetful Days By Lorraine Penn

What happens in your brain to make you forget what day it is?

Is your brain inspired enough to know what day it is anyway?

These are all very worthwhile questions to ask yourself or of others, but what is the real reason we, regardless if you are working or semi-retired, forgetting what day it is can be upsetting, especially if you forget that this is the day of a very important occasion, meeting or social event.

When you research on ‘Google and Google Scholar’ websites it comes up with a whole lot of unrelated information, but interesting enough training your brain in the form of memory quiz appears to be mentioned in most articles.

I know my husband’s memory has increased somewhat due to him now being addicted to Sudoku mathematic puzzles. Guess he can adapt to this style of mind stimulation being a retired Structural Engineer with an analytical mind. From my perspective, when I am actively involved in doing something interesting, generally outside the home involving exciting community projects, I am stimulated and can remember every day, the meetings and what social events are scheduled.

However this tends to change when I am uninspired!

How do you stimulate your brain?
