As a video editor and storyteller, I love to help people shape their memories into meaningful video memoirs. While not all of my clients are dealing with memory issues, I find that reminiscing is an incredible tool for those who are. It’s also a path toward understanding one’s trajectory in life, and the important aspects of one’s life. The value of reminiscence increases as we age. The ability to recall and reflect helps older adults with their identity and self-confidence. Sharing memories with others, especially family members, provides a sense that one’s legacy will be preserved. Reminiscing may also protect against depression and loneliness. I’d love to encourage your listeners to carry a notebook and a pen with them wherever they go, and to take some time every day to sit quietly. If they have photographs or family movies, to spend some time looking at them and reflecting. Also, to think about the questions they never asked and wished they had. To ask themselves: what am I curious about? At some point, they will find a theme to explore. That’s where a video memoir creator can help! videomemoircreations.com
