Nostalgia plays an interesting role in our lives. While many of us may consider it something we experience as we reflect on our past, this week’s guest sees it as a tool we can use to create our future. In his new book, Past Forward: How Nostalgia Can Help You Live a More Meaningful Life , Clay Routledge, PhD, guides us through a fascinating investigation into an emotion we all experience yet often misunderstand, inviting us to consider how nostalgia can have extraordinary potential to enrich our present―and our future.
