Living in the past isn't a good thing, but feeling a little nostalgic can give you a boost.
In a culture focused on progress and futuristic aspirations, why would anyone want to spend time wallowing in nostalgic reverie?
In a time of rapid social and technological change, nostalgia motivates the rehearsal of past experiences that can remind us of our authentic self. In the midst of a kaleidoscope of social and personal transformation, nostalgic reminiscence grounds us with the reminder of the one constant - we are the source of our thoughts, actions, and feelings across time and change. By maintaining a relationship with old parts of our self, we can measure our development and sustain a sense of continuity.
How does rehearsing our past help us cope with the present? Research has suggested that our childhood experiences form a foundation for learning how to cope with stress and challenging situations. As children we watched our parents budget finances during less prosperous times, help others less fortunate, or care for elderly relatives or friends in need.
Healthy relationships during childhood foster the trust necessary to disclose our confidences and ask for advice and assistance. Having been nurtured, we know how to nurture.
Having suffered and survived difficult events, we have the courage and confidence to persist and overcome adversity. Solitude during childhood, enjoying peaceful times at the lake or biking along a nature trail, taught us to reflect, plan, and evaluate before acting, to appreciate the meaning of our experiences, and to discover who we are and would like to be.
