We all have special memories, whether when we went on our first date, the day we graduated from college, or when we held our new baby for the first time. These memories can bring us joy, comfort, and a sense of nostalgia. But often, these memories can fade and become less vivid as time passes.
Fortunately, there are three key ways to bring our memories back to life and keep them fresh in our minds, even if it’s the memory of a deceased loved one.
Write It Down
One of the best ways to keep a memory alive is to put it into words. Writing down the details of your memory can help you remember better and make it more vivid. If you need more confidence, write down as much as you can remember, even if it's just a few sentences!
Science even proves that writing down helps you retain information better, such as before sleep. So jot that memory down on your nightstand, journal, or sticky note, and let My Stories Matter’s expert memory platform do the rest!
Share With Others
Our memories are fragile and can fade over time. Another way to keep a memory alive is to share it with others. Telling a friend or family member about a special memory can help you remember it better and bring you closer.
Sharing a memory can also be a great way to connect with others with similar experiences and inspire them to share their memories. When we share a memory with someone, we share a part of ourselves with them, a therapeutic and enlightening process.
If you want to keep a memory alive for the long term, consider recording it. Writing or speaking about that memory can help organize and structure the information, making it easier to recall later.
This can be a written journal, a voice recording, or a video, which you can reference later and is helpful for memories that may be difficult to recall, such as those from childhood. Recording memories preserve them for future generations.
