Next time you need to break off from a game of Scrabble, chess or cards, forget spending time carefully moving the game out of the way. Just take a photo and you can easily pick up from where you left off.
We all use our phones to take photos of things we need to remember — even if some studies suggest simply focusing on something you need to remember might help to commit it to memory. It’s easier to snap a quick picture of a poster than to write down the details of an up-coming concert or show. Apartment Therapy has a number of suggestions for other memory-jogging photos you might want to take, including photographing games you just have to break off from.
Jennifer Hunter, Assistant Editor at Apartment Therapy, also treats her photos as a short-term to-do list:
What’s been working well for me is a short-term strategy: snap a pic and, once I’ve collected my cleaning etc, delete it. Deleting that photo always feels good, like a checking a task off my to-do list.
