How do you remember past events easier?

Like something easy, for example what happened this morning if you weren't paying much attention to it.

Well most of the trivial and mundane is going to escape us. (If it does come back, it will be under the darndest of circumstances--At least for me, I mean every once in a while something is resurrected that even an autistic savant would have forgotten.) Otherwise trauma helps--A LOT. Neurosis comes in a close second. I would imagine super positive events could stay well ensconced in one's memory, but as bad as it sounds, I think trauma tends to weigh heavier.

It would also help to keep a regular diary and consistently make a note of more than one "insignificant" event if you can direct your consciousness to it. (For example the color, make, and year of at least one car next to you or in front or behind you at a stop light, if not other details. This takes discipline though, and even if you take up my suggestion, you could very easily get bored or tired of the activity. Still, I have read entries of mine from over 10 years ago and I'm amazed at the trivial and mundane that the surrounding memories of the event recorded brings up.
