This Video From TED Ed Explains Why We Feel Nostalgia

Post date:



Like many of you, I have certain triggers that spark nostalgic emotions. It’s a feeling that many of us enjoy, it’s something that some people seek out and try to capture. For me, an example would be the music I grew up listening to, the movies I grew up watching, and the toys I grew up playing with.

The video lesson came from Clay Routledge and the animation was created by Anton Bogaty. Here’s the note that came with it:

Nostalgia was once considered an illness confined to specific groups of people. Today, people all over the world report experiencing and enjoying nostalgia. But how does nostalgia work? And is it healthy? Clay Routledge details the way our understanding of nostalgia has changed since the term was first coined in the late 17th century.

Enjoy the video. It actually offers some interesting insight that I didn’t know before.
