Vlog Ep. 267: The Power of Nostalgia

This episode of #BaduyPride was all about the power of nostalgia! We know it to be a feeling often associated with things like old photo albums or school reunions. But have people ever really sat down to just think about it and examine why we feel the way we do? That's exactly what we ended up doing during today's discussion.

Nostalgia is some pretty powerful stuff and we found an article that stated our brains are literally wired to reward us when we feel nostalgia. And it's a shared experience, so talking about old stories with friends and family has a sort of snowball effect where the good vibes just build and build. It's neither good nor bad in itself. But it can be helpful in many cases but also tricky in other instances. 

While we chose today's topic, we're always open to suggestions! If you have ideas for future video discussions, feel free to fill out this Google Form and your idea may be featured as the focus for an episode!
