90 Quotes About Treasuring Memories


Last Updated on September 4, 2021

Creating memorable experiences promote the health of any relationship. 

Whether it’s sharing a meal during the holidays and special occasions or going on a road trip, enjoying the presence of one another makes a lasting imprint in our minds, something that we relive and talk about long after the activities are over.

Recent findings reveal fascinating information about how memory formation. Researchers at the University of Birmingham found out our minds retrieve memories by reconstructing a past experience in reverse order. A separate study by the California Institute of Technology said that neurons in our brain are key to long-term memory.

Meanwhile, psychologist Daniel Kahneman and brothers Chip and Dan Heath explain that people don’t remember all the details of their past and instead remember “snapshots” of events.

How People Remember: Peak-End Theory

Kahneman and the Heaths theorize that our recollection of an event is influenced by what we felt during the “peaks” or most intense points, whether positive or negative, of that occurrence and the ending of that experience. They add that people recall these “highlights” more than the actual duration of the event. 

The sibling professors and authors say that “peak” moments are characterized by one or more of four things: connection such as weddings and reunions, pride or moments of courage or achievement, elevation or times of intense happiness that come with pleasure and surprise, and insight or moments that give us clarity about ourselves and the world. 

Meanwhile, Kahneman added that people have two “selves” when it comes to memory: the experiencing self and the narrating self. Our experiencing self is aware of what is happening to us moment by moment while our narrating self gathers and forms a story about the highlights that remain in our head. It is the narrating self that edits and interprets events. 

Studies showed that people tended to give a positive evaluation of an event if there was a segment of decreased discomfort to a generally unpleasant or painful experience. On the other hand, negative endings can turn a generally happy event such as a date, vacation, or sports tournament into a bad memory.

To retain good memories, psychologists suggest that we “reframe” our perspective of an experience by not dwelling on the negative incidents within the longer event.

For example, we can find the positive aspect of waiting in line, such as enjoying the delicious meal afterwards or being able to share the meal with someone special or a person you’ve wanted to see for a long time. We can also focus on something positive at the end of an experience if we cannot do something to make an activity end on a high note.


Creating Positive Memories that Boost Relationships

We need to spend time with people we love to make those special connections solid and lasting. We don’t always have to shell out large amounts of money to bond with family and friends as some of the following ideas show.

Get active together.

Walk, jog, or hike outdoors. Pick a form of recreation that will expand your sense of togetherness rather than just being passively together like eating out and watching a film at the cinema.

Try doing new things together. 

Trigger your sense of adventure by going to a new place you’ve never been before, trying a new hobby, or doing anything that’s outside your relationship’s comfort zone.

Enjoy celebratory events.

Besides special occasions, you can participate in events organized by universities and other institutions commemorating historical markers. Determine your common interest and find a program that revolves around it.

Include others.

You can join events featuring other couples, teens, or families. Meeting new people can widen your perception about yourself, your family members, and friends, and the world. 

The Value of Building Memories 

Creating and accumulating positive memories with family members and friends give us a sense of fulfillment.  

These memories help us establish a life well-lived and enjoyed with the people who matter the most to us. 

On a practical note, having strong social connections and committing to make positive memories can produce positive health benefits as we age. Strong relationships that welcome fun or play are good for relieving stress and strengthening creativity and problem-solving abilities.
