    How Do You Know What Day it is When You Wake up in the Morning?

    Does it sometimes take you a few minutes to work it out?

    Interesting question! The simple answer is that I often don't!

    I am sure we have all woken on a Saturday morning, thought it was Friday, looked at the alarm clock, panicked, rushed to get ready for work only to realise that it is the weekend . . .

    When I am unsure what day it is, I concentrate really hard for a few seconds and try to work out what I did yesterday, so I can work out what yesterday was called and then, what day it is today.

    Occasionally I have looked at the date on my iphone when I have been really confused (or just feeling lazy!)

    more difficult, though, is the date. I seem to lose track of the date on a regular basis compared with when I was younger. Probably because we now write the date much less than we used to?

      "Been there, done that worn the T- shirt" as regards getting up for work on a Saturday morning thinking it was a week day! I was half way through my breakfast, wondering why the morning news show wasn't being broadcast before I realized my error!

    I live by a diary - so knowing what day it is ain't that difficult.  My week, month and quarter diary is filled in advance so I know where I am at any point in time.  Then I also use a To-Do list application which I use for additional activities on a  day2day basis.  I sometimes wish everyday was a Saturday!

    The days don't usually matter to me, only if it is the weekend.

    Being retired means that it doesn't matter to me what day it is, and I don't really care.  Someone told me yesterday - whatever day that was - that this is 2013 - is this true?

      Obviously a viscous rumor perpetrated by a callous individual in denial and/or jealous of your carefree lifestyle. Do not fall for this tripe. Any self-respecting retired individual should be cognizant of the fact that calenders only apply to workers

      As you are a grandparent, you know that my comments are ever so slightly a bunch of fibs.   I thought that being retired meant what I said, but I've found out that retirement means exhaustion from child minding, attending funerals, graduations etc.

    I keep a calender in my room that helps me know what day it is. When I wake upin the morning the first thing I do is look on the calender where I may have also noted any other appointments of the day.

    I sometimes forget what day it is and when that happens I look at the calender on my wall or phone, I look at the news because they will either display the day on the screen or say at the beginning of the broadcast and when they come back from commercials, or if all else fails I'll ask a friend or family what day it is.

    I do it by simply listing down the items to be done next day, while going to bed at night. E.g. if the next day is Friday, okay, this and this is to be done. In the morning, the night's plan is helpful and it makes me remember what day it is today.
