Mindfulness Monday

Indulge nostalgia

Have you ever been caught off-guard by a reminder of the past? A waft of perfume, or the car at the traffic lights blaring the soundtrack to your teen summers? Something that gives you a warm fuzzy feeling associated with happy memories.

While nostalgia can often be brought about by coincidence, we can also deliberately choose to experience it by reminiscing – indulging in a favourite film (despite knowing the script off by heart), or looking at old photographs. 

And indulging this rose-tinted emotion can have genuine benefits for us all.

“Research has shown that nostalgia can help all of us to feel more socially connected with one another,” says Anna Gammond, a mental health specialist nurse advisor at Bupa. Some studies have even suggested that it might alleviate feelings of loneliness, contributing instead to a sense of belonging. 

“After engaging in nostalgic reflection, people feel more socially valued, loved, socially confident, and optimistic about being able to form and maintain close relationships,” says Clay Routledge, professor of psychology at North Dakota State University.
