I found this list on AOL's Everyday Health. I thought this would be good to post in the forum. Many of us do these things all ready but it's good to have it written down so we DO remember! LOL
Keep a calendar. Record appointments and important dates as soon as you make them. Write them in big red letters on a wall calendar or set the digital calendar in your mobile device to remind you with a beep or text message.
Make to-do lists. Write down what you need to get done and prioritize the tasks by assigning each one a number. That way, you’ll be more likely to accomplish the most important tasks before fatigue sets in.
Have a place for everything. Always put writing tools, keys, and your reading glasses back where they belong. Encourage family members to do the same.
Write down names and numbers. Carry a small notebook with this information. Just the act of writing something down improves mental fitness because it anchors the information in your mind, says Sheremata. Plus, having written notes can help jog your memory when making phone calls or meeting with people.
Take your time. Work slowly rather than rushing through mental chores at home and at the office. Use a calculator and dictionary to help you accomplish your tasks.
Use a pill organizer. The labeled compartments will remind you when to take your medication and how much to take at specific times, reducing the risk of making mistakes due to memory lapses.
Give yourself visual reminders. Use sticky notes posted around your home and desk at work. If two containers look similar, mark them with different colored tape and bold print. Place small drops of acrylic paint on the correct knobs to turn on appliances and buttons on the remote control.

God does not give us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
