Context based reminders make your life easier.
A calendar app that can recognize different types of entries, like travel, vacation, flights. When the app recognizes a certain context – let’s say flying to London for a week – it suggests helpful alerts like checking in a couple of days before the flight, making arrangements for travel insurance, etc.
You have picked up a couple of new daily habits. These are already habits, so you don’t need to remind yourself to do them. Now you are on vacation, and everything falls apart – you forget to do them.
Before going on your vacation make an appointment in your calendar to remind yourself to do what is usually a habit. Look at your itinerary and for each day decide in advance when you are going to perform a given habit, and block it in tour calendar. This is only tentative, as you are on vacation, and things flow differently than at home, but at least you’ll get a reminder. If you used a habit tracking app, you could also start using it again.
It would be helpful if I could remember to do something that is connected to a specific place in the real world.
Have a small button you can place anywhere (magnetic, adhesive back etc.). You record a message on it like “throughout old stuff”, and place it where you need to do what you need to do. When you come close to it it will play back what you recorded.
