Walking Through Doorways Can Make You Forgetful
We’ve all done it: walked from one room to another and completely forgotten what we went in there for. Don’t worry, you’re not alone OR crazy!
According to the Huffington Post, a new study says that the act of walking through a doorway makes people forgetful. The way our brains work, memories are compartmentalized, so when you’re in one room, it considers that one ‘event’, and when you move to another room, it’s a separate ‘event’, which makes it harder to recall whatever was happening in the first room.
Unfortunately, the study doesn’t say how to keep this from happening…or how to remember it in the first place.
So the next time you need something from the other room…maybe write it down first. Or just make the kids do it.
Have you ever walked into a room and completely forgot what you needed?
