REMIND vs. REMEMBER: meaning and examples

Good morning.

Today I wanted to remind you about the difference between the two verbs remind and remember.

Remember means: to have an image in your mind of a person, a place, or something that happened in the past.

Example 1:
I remember my first kiss when I was 10 years old.

Example 2:
I'll always remember the first time we met.

Remind means: to help someone to remember something that they have to do or to help them to remember an event from the past.

Example 3:
Can you please remind me to call my mother tomorrow.

Example 4:
Please remind James to bring his laptop computer to the presentation.

Notice that you always remind someone, but you remember facts or events.

If you have any questions about today's Daily Vitamin, I would like to remind you that you are welcome to contact me.

Remember to have a good day and an excellent weekend!
