When ideas float in our mind without any reflection or regard of the understanding, it is that which the French call reverie our language has scarce a name for it.  ~John Locke

Doorways and Other Distractions

This certainly eases a lot of concerns.

Ever walk into a room with some purpose in mind, only to completely forget what that purpose was?

Turns out,  the doors themselves are to blame for these strange memory lapses.

Vintage Door

Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing through a doorway triggers what’s known as an event boundary in the mind, separating one set of thoughts and memories from the next.

Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a blank slate for the new locale.

It’s not aging, it’s the door!

Now go out and have yourself a GREAT Monday!
