Coping with Nostalgia to Rediscover the Joy of Now

Sometimes we can get so deeply entangled in nostalgia that we start denying the present. Here’s how to let go of the past to rediscover the joy of now:

Today’s Joy Might Be Tomorrow’s Nostalgia
Living in the now, mindfully and consciously, and enjoying “peak experience” moments is the way to create new memories to enjoy in the future. Such approach helps us build an attitude of optimism in regard to both present and future.

Appreciation and Gratitude
When nostalgic emotions arise, this is an excellent opportunity to feel grateful for the amazing experiences and beautiful moments we’ve had. Change is inevitable, and gratitude is one of the healthiest ways of dealing with it.

The Past Is the Past but Life Is Now
If you ever feel like your past experiences and memories are becoming overwhelming, remember that this is a good thing: you have lived a good life before, but you’re also doing the best you can today.
