comment For how long afterwards do we benefit from acclimatization?
Honestly, I would not say that what you feel is due to your body having adjusted to the altitude. Muscle memory is not defined in high altitude adaptation. Most of the altitude sickness attributes to low oxygen content and which can only be offset using higher lung capacity (Even this cant guarantee anything). Hence taking two days a month trip doesn't really make any difference in your adaptation rate. Most probably as @mattnz indicated, it's the placebo effect and your mental preparedness that makes the difference.

I would suggest you rather spend time in the foothills of himalays(many of which are above 3000m). Also note that high altitude acclimatization is not a well defined science. What applies to @pepi might not work for you. You stand a better chance by spending more time in the Himalayas.

comment What can I do to keep my hands warm while using touchscreens in the winter?
Unless you own one of the iphones that requires your fingerprint to unlock. Reminds me, I need to check if I can add my noseprint instead of a fingerprint on iphone! ;)
