The Art of Making Memories
How to Create and Remember Happy MomentsAudiobook CD - 2019
Do people remember their first kiss? The day they graduated? Their favorite vacation? Or the best meal they ever had? Memories are the cornerstones of a person's identity, shaping who they are, how they act, and how they feel. In his work as a happiness researcher, Meik Wiking has learned that people are happier if they hold a positive, nostalgic view of the past. But how do they make and keep the memories that bring them lasting joy? Examine how mental images are made, stored, and recalled in brains, as well as the 'art of letting go,' why we tend to forget certain moments to make room for deeper, more meaningful ones. Meik uses data, interviews, global surveys, and real-life experiments to explain the nuances of nostalgia and the different ways people form memories around their experiences and recall them, revealing the power that a 'first time' has on their recollections, and why a piece of music, a smell, or a taste can unexpectedly conjure a moment from the past.
