A seemingly simple process, reminiscence, has been found to have a profound impact on the mental and physical health of individuals, as well as for those who share these memories with the person who is reminiscing.

According to the Journal of Psychosocial Nursing and Mental Health Services, reminiscing or “life review” has the following benefits:

  • Resolution of old conflicts
  • Personality reorganization
  • Restoration of meaning in the individual's life
  • Increased social connections with others

The reminiscence process has also been shown to help reduce pain, stress and depression.
