Now Let’s See…What Did I Come in Here For?

How many times have you walked into a room, only to find yourself saying, okay, what did I come in here for again?

Feel a little absent minded some days? Don’t worry; you can take comfort in knowing you’re not the only person that forgets things from time to time.

According to a new study, the average person forgets FOUR things each day. That means the typical person is forgetting about 1,460 things every year.

Here are some of the most common things we tend to forget:

  • Why we walked into a room.

  • Where we put our keys.


  • Things we wanted to buy at the grocery store.


  • People’s names after we meet them.


  • Where we placed our pen.


  • Taking meat out to defrost.


  • Responding to an email.


  • Mailing something.


  • What we wanted to search for online.

  • Where we parked our car.

Researchers say we can chalk up all this forgetfulness to longer working hours, financial concerns and much busier lifestyles.

So don’t worry, even those of us with the best memory will gap things out occasionally.

Just make sure you don’t space out something really important, you know like your anniversary date or the date of your significant other’s birthday.

Do something like that, and you may wish you forgot to get out of bed that day!
