  1. Hi Abby, useful episode and tips on Time Blindness. I will definitely check out the Timeular app and hardware. I have a smart watch that buzzes me every hour and a digital watch that beeps every hour. I don’t struggle with being on time for appt’s, but I have always struggled with Future Thinking. Sarah Ward, EFpractice.com, use gestures and mind MIME to visualize steps needed to complete task/project.


    1. Thanks Bruce! I will check out that website! What smart watch do you have?? How were you able to make it buzz every hour?? I have an AppleWatch and I cannot find an hourly alert!! So wild that I can’t make a “smart” watch do what my $10 digital one in the 90s did


  2. I used to have a Morse code notifier app that can be set to beep the time hourly, e.g. Morse code for “9” if it’s 9am (don’t be scared, Morse code numbers are easy to learn!). Unlike a digital wristwatch, it does have “do not disturb” hours, so it doesn’t wake me up in the middle of the night.

    Because I have trouble keeping track of my phone in addition to time, the other benefit of that hourly chime is it serves as a regular “your phone is here” update. It also keeps things interesting for me (learning Morse code) and reads my messages out loud without other people understanding them.
