How Are Memories Made (and Lost)?

How often do we remember things we’d rather forget and forget things we want to remember? Why do our brains retain some memories and discard others? It all comes down to our five senses, the emotions they trigger and repetition…

Storytelling for the Modern Family

Since the development of language, people have shared stories. Our prehistoric ancestors used stories to bond, teach, and entertain and today we continue to use stories for these same reasons. Not much has changed. Or has it?

 

While the power of stories to move us has remained constant, the main source of these stories has changed. Family stories have been replaced by those created by distant organizations, served up to us conveniently on our ever-present electronic devices. The fading presence of family in the narratives that inform our behavior is costing us dearly. It is time to bring family storytelling back.

Celebrating Grandparent’s Day: Then and Now

Happy Grandparent’s Day from all of us here at Arkiver. We hope you spend the day celebrating your Grandparents who are living and take time to remember those who are no longer here with us.

I always celebrated Grandparent’s Day by making a gift and card and showing them how much I loved them. I wanted to learn more about the history of Grandparent’s Day and share it with you.

A New Way to Journal For Age-Old Reasons

As we flip through family albums and cringe at our high school prom photos, we notice how much we’ve changed. How was that hairstyle ever fashionable? Pictures create a timeline of our physical changes through the years, but how often do we think about how we’ve changed internally?

How Memories Can Give You a New Perspective On Life

We are planners. You’ve most likely heard your parents say, “think about your future,” at some point in your life. It’s easy to get caught in the grind, constantly collecting goals and to-dos in endless lists. From the grocery list on the fridge to your work calendar at the office, we find ourselves effortlessly traversing and organizing the future. Advertising, media, and a human desire to achieve more all drive us to dwell on what we don’t have and what we haven’t achieved, rather than appreciating all that we have already accomplished.

 

So, what about the past?
