Many of us have been tasked with staying home and keeping our loved ones safe and healthy. Use some of this time at home to start capturing and preserving your memories; or helping a loved one capture theirs.
Taking a walk down memory lane can help us cope, reaffirm our identity, and feel more fulfilled. And it doesn’t end there…
Reminiscing can also:
Reduce depression and anxiety
Enhance self esteem and sense of well-being
Improve quality of life
Create a renewed sense of meaning
And when we share our memories and our parents share their memories with us, we are collectively passing down priceless stories that become part of the family history and will live on for generations.
To spark those memories, try looking through old photo albums, rewatching favorite movies or shows, or listening to music from different periods of their life. And get ready...for some laughs- and probably a few tears!
