^Moment hack: Did you forget what you were about to do? Turn your whole head to the left. Look. inhale. Exhale. Then turn back forward. You may remember what you were working on.
(how it works: It reminds you where you are right now. You are wherever "here" is right now, and when you get literally "lost in thought", it brings you "back to reality" and resets your attention. Gets you out of your head). Let me know if it works for you. -Ken^
