Photos are an incredibly powerful way to kickstart your memory.  Photos are treasures, moments of your life captured, milestones, birthdays, happy, sad, people long gone, parties you enjoyed, trips, holidays, houses, beaches, there is so much to be captured from your photos and it is not just the picture, it is everything around the photo and as such a brilliant way to help you to piece together your life.

Pick a photo, any photo and ask yourself these questions:-

  • What were you wearing?
  • Who were you with?
  • Where were you?
  • How old were you?
  • What happened that day
  • What happened the day before / day after
  • What sounds, smells, emotions does this bring up?
  • What else does this memory conjure up?
