Today is going to be a long day. I wanted to remind myself ahead of time to slow down and appreciate whatever little things there are to be appreciated. Take the time to absorb things with as many senses as you can; the memories will be more vivid. I ran my hand along the flaking paint of this wall and can remember exactly what it felt like, where it was, and why I was there.
Taste can be a tricky sense to do this with. Don't taste things that obviously shouldn't be tasted, such as paint and gutters. Unless, of course, you want to make memories of a hospital, in which case, taste away.
