If we ask a thing that you really find annoying during your daily routine, what would it be? We believe that one of the most common answers will be the losing keys all the time. Here is our first secret: do not look at the same places repeatedly you already know that those keys are not there.
You believe that you put them on the table or over the counter, but you cannot find them. Or you are sure that they are in your bag, but when you arrive at your door, it becomes impossible to find it in that black hole.
Misplacing keys or forgetting their spot is quite common. So here in this article, we provide some tips and tricks to avoid, or at least, reduce the occurrence of lost and found keys.
First, stay calm and keep searching
Most of us get angry and panicked and start acting in hurry and carelessly. We go through the same places and run around the house. On the contrary, what an individual needs to do is searching calmly and section by section to scan every part of your home. Do not run around. Search your home room by room and spot by spot.
Try to remember your previous action steps
When you face with a lost and found item problem, try to remember your steps. Re-live the scenes when you leave your office or enter your home. Go over them, touch the same places, or sit on the same couch to see if you notice something different.
Look carefully in the messy spots
The human eye can be easily tricked. You should have experienced at least once when you searched a document on your PC desktop but cannot see its name even it is middle of the screen. Our eyes become tired and tricked quickly. Therefore, search messy and scattered places. If you lost and found keys were already in a visible place, you wouldn’t be searching for them, right?

It was a tough experience, everything seemed hard, and the hardest bit had to still actually come: once my body recovered, because I had not moved for so many months, I had to start the rehabilitation process which I perceived as a nightmare.

After a few months I was beginning to give up on myself, I was spiralling into darkness, and in that moment my parents decided I needed help.
