July 2 is I Forgot Day. If you are you a forgetful person who frequently forgets anniversaries, birthdays, special occasions or even to bring the milk from the store on your way back home, then this is the unofficial holiday you should be celebrating.
Created by Gaye Anderson, the holiday encourages people to apologize and make up for all the events and occasions they might have forgotten in the past few months.
How to Celebrate?
- Acknowledge your mistake and do something nice for those whose birthdays and anniversaries you missed. Some ideas include: making a nice dinner for them or sending them flowers.
- Write a nice apology note to your loved ones telling them how sorry you are that you forgot their birthday or that special occasion.
- Create an online reminder or calendar for all the special occasions in your life. That way, you’ll never have to forget a thing, except today’s holiday!
Did You Know…
…that according to some studies, walking through a door can create memory lapses? Psychologists believe that this is because when people walk through a door from one room to another, the transition indicates to the brain that the scene has changed and all information gathered in the previous room or scenario is no longer needed.
