Step 1: Most common and simple way, jolting down a list

Picture of Most common and simple way, jolting down a list
 Most common people do to remember things or not forget things is to write them down in a list. I do it all the time because I always forget also. The most important thing is that where you write the list down is safe. You always have to keep in mind that you do have a list and that you will always have a list. Don't use just some scrap piece of paper. Buy a notepad, diary, schedule book, planner, or papers that you always keep them in one place. Don't wait to write down things. Write whatever you have to know as soon as you hear it or remember it.

Really? There was a study? Where? (I was referring to the "study about using your opposite body" thingy)

I like the comment about using the "opposite body".  Sometimes when I want to remember to do something in particular, I will take my ring and put it on the opposite hand -- an unfamiliar sensation.  You could do this with your watch or a bracelet(etc) too. 

Then when i get home, the sensation of the jewelry in the "wrong" place is constantly there and reminds me to do -- whatever it was I wanted to remember.

That's cool! What I do by using the opposite body is using my left hand to write and do stuff rather than my right hand all the time. I am right handed so I rarely use my left hand so much. I also switch accessories at times from left side to right side but I don't know yet it that really helped me with anything haha
