I've been thinking about how so many things pulse through our minds every day, yet not everything gets remembered. Sometimes that is alright, though there are those fleeting ideas or small moments of delight that can get overlooked when looking back on a day. This falls in line with the fact that I've never the best with the recollection of specific facts but rather excel more in episodic memory, making use of contextual cues to recall events. Environments, smells, tastes, feelings - these all help in bringing a memory into view.
A key part to memory formation is our presence and attention to the situation. As more things vie for our attention, less and less gets committed to memory. Perhaps there is a way to assist in the first part of memory formation so the rest of the process even has a chance.
