Whether you’ve read our blog on Nostalgia or not (read here), the chances are you will be pretty familiar with those feelings of joy when you’re taken back to your simple, early days as a child. It feels nice right?! But did you know that Nostalgia doesn’t have to be a personal, independent experience? It can also be shared amongst others that reminisce on the same memories as your own. When we engage in activities with family members for example, it is highly likely that childhood memories become triggered as we spend time around those that knew us in an earlier life.
To finish off April’s look into ways to feel more connected, we are encouraging you to dig into your past and find an activity that was a bit of a tradition in your household. Whether it's cooking a particular meal, playing a certain game or heading out to a place you called a second home, spend some time this week reimmersing yourself in your childhood. If you ever feel disconnected from others and need to put things back into perspective, reflecting on your past will highlight what and who is important to you, lying at the core of the person you’ve become.
