It's said nostalgia is like rose-coloured glasses. As if it's all bad. But nostalgia has benefits often overlooked. It's not just about good feelings and memories, either. Nostalgia can motivate you and help you stick to good habits. Here's how.
I overcame my reverse nostalgia this summer and started enjoying watermelon again! As a kid my older cousins spit the seeds on me (and each other) and it left me with decades-long disgust. I decided not to let that aversion control me. Put in a blender with protein and ice it makes a delicious summer workout drink!
