Have you misplaced your keys again? Look, we get that people lose their keys from time to time, but if this is happening on a weekly basis, then something is amiss.

While it is completely natural to lose your keys or to lock them in the car, doing so on a regular basis sends up a red flag. It could be that you are just a careless person, but it could also mean that there is some deep-seated problem that needs to be addressed. Bostons Locksmith, your mobile locksmith service in Boston, offers some reasons as to why you are constantly losing your keys.

Prescription Medications

There is a rather large number of Americans who take prescription medications that could affect them mentally. That is, some people take meds that leave them a little spaced out. If you are always losing your keys and you take medications, check to see what the side effects are for your particular meds.

Even over-the-counter medicines can cause brain fog, just ask anyone who takes allergy medications in the spring. Anti-depressants are also known for robbing memory and causing space-outs. You might wish to talk to your doctor if you feel your medications are to blame for your frequent loss of keys.


We all suffer stress. Of course, some of us suffer it far worse than others. We all have stress and different ways in which we manage it. If you are in a stressful situation, it is pretty easy to forget silly things like where you put your keys. If this is the case, you may wish to see a therapist or find some healthy ways to deal with your stress.

Too Much Alcohol

Consuming too much alcohol can lead to short-term memory loss and frantic searchers trying to find your keys in the morning. And let’s face it, if you are getting dropped off at home while inebriated, chances are pretty good you will drop your keys at some random spot and in the morning have no recollection just where you put them.

Not Enough Sleep

Not getting enough sleep is a surefire way to underperform at work, fall asleep while driving your car and lose your keys, like, all of the time. Make sure you catch enough ZZZs at night and we bet you won’t lose your keys, and job, so often.

If you have lost your keys and really can’t find them, give Bostons Locksmith a call for key replacement.
