Recently in an effort to find a new source of focus and bounce, especially at work, I have turned to my childhood. Nostalgia. You will be surprised just how much of an impact the hobbies, the fun, the memories and the experiences you had as a child can and will have an effect on you.
We could never have loved the earth so well if we had no childhood in it. ~George Eliot
So what exactly did I look for in my childhood? Music.
The best way to remember and reminisce the past is through music. The music itself has the ability open your mind into a deeper imagination, and into a deeper focus.
Through nostalgia, we’re reminded of the places we grew up, our families, the wondrous curiosity of our childhood, the joy of our favorite moments, past romances and the many places we have ventured to.
As John Tierney puts it for the New York Times:
Nostalgia has been shown to counteract loneliness, boredom, and anxiety. It makes people more generous to strangers and more tolerant of outsiders.
Nostalgia does have its painful side, but the net effect is to make life seem more meaningful and death less frightening. When people speak wistfully of the past, they typically become more optimistic and inspired about the future.
