If you do, you’re not alone…

A recent study reveals that this concept is called event boundary. Your brain takes the thoughts you have in one environment and files them away.

So, when you are going from one room to the next, it’s easy to forget what you are looking for if you were thinking about it in a different room.

There is no way to prevent this from happening. However, the scientist who conducted this study jokes, “Doorways are bad. Avoid them at all cost.”
