How to Fuel Positive Change by Leveraging Episodic Memory

In this article:

Some researchers believe that our memory didn’t evolve for us to only remember but to imagine all that might be (Young, 2019).
Episodic memory is a powerful mechanism where body meets mind, allowing us to revisit past moments in the present (Williams et al., 2022).
When we reflect on our highs and lows, they influence how we think, feel, and behave and become valuable tools for our wellbeing while guiding our current decisions and shaping our future (Williams et al., 2022).
This article explores episodic memory and how it can be combined with positive psychology to create a flourishing life.
