We suddenly can't remember where we put the keys just a moment ago, or an old acquaintance's name, or the name of an old band we used to love. As the brain fades, we euphemistically refer to these occurrences as "senior moments." While seemingly innocent, this loss of mental focus can potentially have a detrimental impact on our professional, social, and personal well-being. It happens to most of us, but is it inevitable?
If you've ever been convinced by a salesperson that you truly wanted a product, done something too instinctively, or made choices that seemed entirely out of character, then you've had an idea planted in your mind. Here's how it's done. Note: We've gotten a lot of emails about how to do this in specific situations.

Throughout the day, ask yourself if you are dreaming whenever you notice the dot. This technique is called a "Reality Check". Each time you see the dot, don't just say "Of course I'm not dreaming".
