Forgetfulness is the brain’s way of safeguarding against obesity due to a sedentary lifestyle as you age.
How many times do you have to go back into a room to fetch the item you first went for, because you came away with something else?
It’s about 20 metres from my lounge to the bedroom; 40 metres round trip. I walk this repeatedly to fetch variously; my book; coffee mug; cell phone; laptop; crossword puzzles etc; each time returning with a different item than the one I originally wanted. When you factor in failed trips to the kitchen, other rooms and garden, I certainly get my exercise!
Anyone else out there clocking up the miles this way?
Please tell me I’m not alone!
