We’d say a list is essential to make sure this doesn’t happen. A small notebook in your bag or pocket is an ideal tool to help you with this.
Health and Fitness:
Keeping track of things like weight loss, diet, training schedules could help with any new fitness campaign and increase your chances of sticking to it. Remembering when you last weighed yourself can be great motivation to continue.

Keeping track of your diet can help with things like health and well-being and help you resolve things like fatigue and so on. Knowing what you have eaten and when can help form good habits too.
Children grow so quick and things like height are all a fun part of this. Children love to be creative so you can chart progress in all manner of areas such as development, learning and more.

You could also use the notebook for chores and encouraging children to complete these and tick off as done. Earning pocket money in the process.
Food and Diet:
Keeping track of what you have eaten can help wit all sorts of problems, financing food bills, tracking weight loss, diet and allergies perhaps. Keeping a daily record means you can compare different days when perhaps you felt tired or had more energy. All useful information. If you are on a calorie controlled diet then a daily record can help with this. Dieting and weight loss can be easily tracked too. You could use your notebook to pre-plan meals ahead so you know what you are eating for the week ahead, perfect for a busy lifestyle.
Money & Finances:
The one thing that most of us worry about is money and finances.
