Learn Five Ways to Capture Memories

Learn Five Ways to Capture Memories

Most of us travel to unique places or meet unique people. Sometimes we encounter such fantastic moments that we wish to swim in the memories forever. The best way to keep these memories alive is to freeze them. Luckily both old and new technologies allow us to be able to accomplish this quite easily. In fact, modern lives are so well documented it’s easy to know what’s going on in the life of someone you haven’t seen in years. Certain memories lend themselves more readily to certain means of recording and storage.

Archive photos.

There are lots of photographers who capture beautiful moments like births, birthdays, anniversaries, and weddings at very affordable rates. Also most gadgets including phones, tablets, and even any office or gaming laptop that are under $100, have fantastic cameras that allow you to capture memories. You can create photo albums or digital photo frames for storage. It’s also possible to have backup storage of soft copies. Many older hard copy photos can also be converted to soft copies for ease of storage and safe keeping. Currently, there exist hundreds of apps for storing photos off-site for a long time.

Write a biography or keep journals.

You don’t have to be a famous personality to write your biography. There are precious relations, memories, and seasons that would be wonderful to record. You can have a notebook computer file for such purposes. Alternatively, you can have a private online blog or memory book. A journal enables you to capture the different seasons of life and the various emotional and mental journeys that you walked through and how they influenced your view of reality and relationships. Well-written biographies with properly-defined timelines are always treasured. It’s often easier to write down your thoughts than verbalize them into a recorder.

Create a scrapbook.

You can pin awards, certificates, testimonials, memorabilia, and precious letters into a scrapbook. You can also have a small scrapbook with old photos, which you can fix or edit with Photoshop or PhotoLemur for Mac users. In it you can let friends or loved ones write beautiful thoughts or memories about each other. Make sure the scrapbook memory captures as much of your essential stories as possible. These books could be general or dedicated to specific topics like cooking or child development. The books, trophies, and memorabilia can all be stored in a keepsake box. These are boxes (preferably wooden or metal) which act as a treasure chest of all the times that you value.

Record an oral history.

The best part about modern recordings is that they don’t have to be top-quality. Most digital phones have video cameras that provide remarkable quality. If there are beautiful family moments like a Christmas message from a distant relative, a goodwill message to/from Granny, or a visit abroad, they can all be recorded. Capturing voice and motion images of events adds more life and realness to the memories being captured. It’s also a very efficient tool to record family traditions and family history that are on the brink of getting lost.

Make a video.

There is a high probability that you have lots of movies that can no longer be played in the old format. You can have them converted from VCR to the latest format for preservation. Videos differ from oral recordings in that they are less officious and of better quality. You should enlist the service of a skilled videographer, whether they own the best drones available in the market to capture moments from high buildings, or just high-end DSLR cameras to record the moments for weddings, graduations, or birthdays. Well-made videos tend to connect the younger generation to people and events from the past that they may have missed.

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

Getting naked is often thought of as an act that should only be reserved for intimacy—and even then some get squirmy! Many people are more comfortable believing that the more clothes you are wearing the better. However, getting naked more often can have great benefits for you. Here are 10 great reasons to get naked more often:

1. It burns more fat.

Your body’s main supply of brown adipose tissue (BAT), or good fat cells, are located around your shoulder blades and neck. When your body is exposed to the elements and is cooler, the BAT proliferates and essentially kills the white adipose tissue, aka bad fat cells. So, not wearing any clothes helps promote this and makes you healthier.

2. You’ll become comfortable with who you are.

Self-acceptance is hard to come by today. Ask anyone you know and see if they are happy with themselves. Chances are they will say they are too fat, not pretty, and find all of the flaws that they can. In reality, others do not see this. They see that you are beautiful. When you begin to get naked, you learn to appreciate your body and realize how beautiful you really are.

3. It saves you money.

Being naked more often saves on buying new clothing since you are wearing nothing a lot of the time. Be careful when you are in public, though—you may have to put on some clothes!

4. It increases your immune system.

Being naked and getting exposure to the sun’s rays actually increases your body’s vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is directly related to your immune system. When you have optimal levels of vitamin D, your body’s immune system is impeccable, and you will be better equipped to ward off viruses, including the common cold and flu. So go lay outside naked on your private balcony or in your yard.

5. It makes you face your fears head on.

People cringe today when you mention the words “get naked.” They are so afraid of it—and today’s children are so ingrained with this—that they must wear layer upon layer to deal with their body image. However, when you are naked, you face your fears of body image and self-acceptance, experiencing some of the best moments of your life.

6. You will feel better in your clothes.

When you do wear clothes (because not everyone has yet accepted being naked in public), you will start to choose clothing that accentuates the parts of your body that you love. You will begin to notice that maybe that muumuu does not flatter your beautiful curves and start wearing clothes that you love.

7. You will embrace vulnerability.

When you put yourself out there, it is a natural reaction to have fear and worry. However, this is an opportunity to embrace being vulnerable. It allows you to think and get down to the core of what really matters and what is of importance to you. When you strip away all of the excess, you are 100% you and willing to take on anything that comes your way.

8. You will show the world the real you.

Today, we have many ways of altering our appearance from our true body image when we wear clothing. Some people alter their image so much that they fear getting naked with the person they love. It seems crazy that this could even happen; however, the rise in use of breast-enhancing bras and Spanx products has put this idea into people’s minds. This all goes back to being comfortable with your true body image. If a person really does love you, then they should not love you based upon your image. If they do, then you may even decide that the ever-so-uncomfortable leggings that go up above your waist to hold in all of the imperfections may not be worth it after all.

9. You will have fun.

Well, this could go in all sorts of directions. But when you are comfortable with your naked body and see it as being flattering, then life is more fun. You start realizing that you are beautiful and are willing to do more things that you probably would not have done otherwise—with and without your clothes on.

10. You can have intercourse with the lights on.

Many people are self-conscious about the way they look and decide that the less lighting the better when they are intimate with their partner. It’s nothing new. If you survey your best friends, you will probably come to this conclusion too. They may say that it even gets awkward, because they are more concerned with what their partner thinks of their body than just having and enjoying amazing intercourse. When you love the way you look naked, you will also want to have your partner see you at your best.

What are you waiting for? Start spending more time in the buff today and begin to change the way you think about your body.
