2. Create Happy Memories

Childhood memories shape our soul and make us who we are as adults. Happy memories create a positive bond in the family and have an enduring impact on our children’s lives. Best of all, creating happy memories doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. Going for a hike, camping under the stars, getting messy in the mud, planting a garden together, or a loving bedtime ritual are all simple ways to create happy memories.

“Memories of the past can help to maintain current feelings of self-worth and can contribute to a brighter outlook on the future,” says Dr. Tim Wildschut from the University of Southampton.
