Think of something ordinary, something that happens regularly, perhaps even daily, in your life, something that you could create and experience right this moment.
It could be making a cup of tea, breathing, brushing your teeth.
In your mind recreate and re-experience that ordinary moment and write down everything about it.
How much detail can you recall and re-experience about that everyday and ordinary moment?
Can you recall it in great detail, remembering everything about that moment with ease? Or do you remember only parts of the ordinary moment?
Does it take effort and concentration to remember the smaller details?
Often when we perform an ordinary or everyday task, we gloss over the finer details because performing that task is something we can, almost, do without thinking; we’re so accustomed to every minute detail involved that we often focus on other things.
So, when we close our eyes to recall that ordinary task, we either struggle to remember the details or we have to concentrate to remember every single step and every minute detail.
