Why does reminiscing about the past make you feel worse and how can you re-create “the best” moments so that we are living our best years now and forever more? In this episode of STRESSPROOF we deconstruct the idea of “the best years of our life” as well as learn more about how our brains our wired when it comes to memory.
Is our memory accurate? Can we create memories? And how can we replace meaning on certain memories?
All of these questions are answered in this week’s podcast so that you can leverage how memory works to create more meaningful life experiences.
