Everyone forgets things sometimes. Whether it be your phone, car or house key, where you parked at the store, or forgetting to pick up that key ingredient for dinner on your way past the store after work. Everyone forgets something.
Why Do People Forget Things- Especially When They Are Important?
In this day and age, people lead increasingly busy lives. In addition to this, people are in a constant state of over-stimulation due to the environmental factors that are all around them on a daily basis. This is true whether you are in your home, your vehicle, your place of work, etc… The list could go on. The brain can only remember to remind you of so many things at once, so to speak.
Because your brain is constantly being flooded with new information that claims to be urgent or time sensitive, it’s literally impossible to hold onto all of your thoughts at once. So you forget things. Sometimes they are unimportant things like forgetting the mail key. But sometimes they are critically important things, such as forgetting a passenger in your vehicle.
Constant Incoming Calls, Messages, Alerts, Ads& Other Distractions
Can you even remember the last time that you purposely left your phone in a different room than where you planning to be in for a length of time? How many hours a day do you utilize a digital device? It’s highly likely that you engage in digital activities for upwards of 5 hours each day. At home, at work, and even in between; we as a society have become entirely too dependent upon technology in almost every aspect of our lives.
This constant use of electronic media, tools and other functions is quite literally eating away at the synaptic connections in the average person’s brain. A wide host of studies have shown that this is a very real concern. Engaging in too much digital activity creates a severe imbalance in brain development- and by default brain functionality.
Using the devices or engaging in the activities listed below enlists the left brain almost exclusively. As a result the right brain suffers and eventually begins to atrophy. This causes serious problems with deductive reasoning and logic, as well as short term and long term memory function.
- Television (watching a program that is a minimum of twenty minutes without engaging in any undirected thought patterns or ideas, etc)
- Computers and laptops (working, net surfing, watching videos or other media, gaming, researching, typing as opposed to writing, etc)
- Handheld gaming systems and tablets (extended periods of game play, net surfing, working, etc)
- Cellphones and Smartphones (talking on the phone, texting, using a search engine to quickly gain answers to questions or other info, scrolling through social media or other sites, etc)
A Device That May Help You Remember One of the Most Important Things
We’ve developed a device that focuses on helping you remember just one simple thing- your passengers that are stranded in a hot vehicle. Our device; the Vesta; works in coordination with our established system that is designed to send you a text message alert when it recognizes that there may be a passenger in danger of heat stroke. It can send the alert to up to 10 different people. This in order to maximize the likelihood that one of the alerted parties will be able to respond quickly.
With so many reminders on your phone that aren’t really that important, why not invest in a device that will send you alerts that are truly important?
