Episode 220: Busy Brain Syndrome and Forgetfulness ~ Audio Article

So I was going to research something online, noticed I had a Facebook notification, clicked on it, responded to it… then, 8 minutes later, I forgot what I was doing. It took me a couple minutes of retracing my steps to recover it. I call it BBS… Busy Brain Syndrome.

That’s never happened to you, right? 😉

The “can’t remember what I was going to do… or say”, the dilemma can happen multiple times over the next hour and sometimes minutes if I let it. Fortunately, I now use a time tracker to track my time, and often refer to it to quickly recall the last task, or my entire day, such as when I’m posting the day’s review in my journal.

However, I’m not concerned. Miffed sometimes, yes. Concerned, no. I know that my forgetfulness is not because of heredity or any deleterious aging. It shows up in people of all ages, including youth.

The forgetfulness of this era is often just BBS – Busy Brain Syndrome.
