Have we become more forgetful in lockdown? – BBC News

forgot how to model i've forgotten how to take care of my hair speaking french has been quite difficult [Music] so happy to be home [Music] i feel like i forgot how to model like when lockdown was lifted i went back into the studio and i froze because i just didn't know how to pose again i didn't feel comfortable because i gained a lot of [Music] weight we're in the really early stages of doing some research on this and we're definitely finding that people are reporting memory lapses there has been some research to show that people's memory does dip a little bit but that it seems to improve again when people get out and about when they're socializing [Music] i've forgotten how to take care of my hair my natural hair i'm always used to people doing my hair for me or do my performance and it came to a point where obviously they couldn't physically do it i bought so much makeup i just kind of forgot how to apply it and watch youtube and i just get frustrated because it wouldn't be the same but i'm the combination of having less novelty and maybe less physical exercise but also having a little bit more stress means that some people are feeling more forgetful and less able to concentrate and focus social skills definitely that's the biggest one i'm not really as willing to communicate people as much it's also made me very anti-social a little bit so i have been making effort with friends you know facetiming video calling is to also allow them to remember that i'm still here for you as a friend i may not be there physically but i'm here we have learned to socialize in a different way to some extent and we've done less of it and i can understand people feeling nervous about it i think i'm quite nervous of it as well but the skills that we've developed over a lifetime are not going to disappear in a few months [Music] i made the effort to like facetime my family a bit more so that the language isn't going when everything is lifted i feel like people will be overwhelmed at first then eventually things will start to get normal people start to socialize again you
