Day 5 – Colourful Food

You may find this surprising, but looking back on great meals you’ve had is quite satisfying and can leave you with a feeling of happiness. Our brains are hardwired to recall strong emotions over the mundane, leaving you feeling as though the past has been negative when in reality it could have been pretty great. Having photos of the past, the mundane- such as a great veggie dish barbecued on a boat parked outside of a beautiful view- can remind you that at times life was great, and delicious! Try it yourself. Dig out some photos you took on your cellphone and remember a great trip, great meal, or great friend!
