There are some mundane tasks that you perform every day, sometimes under great stress. For instance:
- Taking your medication
- Locking your front door
- Parking your car
Since you're so used to them, it may actually be that you do these things without thinking about it, like you're on autopilot.
The question is, what is the best way of always remembering whether/how you've done these things? How can you remember if you really locked the door this morning? How to remember where you parked the car in the supermarket parking area? (These things become extra hard to remember if performed under stress.)
