We sometimes have the tendency to give our memory more credit than it deserves. The human body naturally overlooks things, dims the vibrancy of previous life events, and allows for major occurrences to fade from the mind. Once the anticipation, fear, and excitement dissipate, a memory loses its position at the forefront of your mind. This is normal, of course, but that doesn’t mean it’s unavoidable.
If the issue circulates around the idea that we don’t recall things as well as we should, then the only plausible solution would be to give our brains a well-deserved refresher.
Nowadays especially, it is more important than ever to reflect and remind yourself of happier times. Looking at old pictures, videos, and clips will remind you of the better times that existed outside of now. They’ll also remind you of what’s to come in the future. For me personally, allotting a set amount of time each day to dedicate towards simply recalling sunnier days is what keeps me motivated and happier. Everyone should, once in a while, take time to appreciate the good things that they have experienced. Not just the memory itself, but the sensory stimulants, the emotion attached to it, and the visuals. Don’t just remember what happened that day, but the warmth of the sun on your skin, the speed your heart would beat, and the hue of the sky as well.
