Did you know some research suggests we reminisce in 20% of all social interactions (Pasupathi & Carstensen, 2003)?
Why does reminiscence matter? Because reflecting on the past has been linked to a lot of positive results —
lower levels of depression,
increased life satisfaction,
increased emotional well-being,
increased positive emotion,
bringing people together,
encouraging story-telling and legacy building, and
promotes people to find and make meaning of their life
So here’s your Quick Tip: Reminisce more.
Reflect on yesterday, last week, or five years ago. Share your stories, remember the good times, and think about how far you have come.
Whether you do it individually or with others it’s worth it!
