Introduction to the Guide to Nostalgia

We believe that our series of laterlife Guides is a valuable resource for laterlife readers, so we want to remind you what's there and encourage you to make use of the guides. Each month we highlight the latest guide we've updated, so even if you've taken a look before, it's worth another visit to remind yourself and see the latest updates.

This month we're taking a look at our Guide to Nostalgia. Many of us look back fondly at the past and welcome things that remind us of times gone by. So have a look at the introduction to our Guide to Nostalgia and then go the Guide itself for some ideas on how to put your nostalgic thoughts into practice.

The first page of the Guide is a general introduction to this fascinating topic and shows some of the ways in which we can indulge our nostalgic thoughts, through things like museums, radio, TV, photos etc as well as through the Internet.

Page 2 gives some more ideas on how we can re-create the past and then goes on to provide some thoughts about how we can get started.

The next page is all about where we can go to find and maybe start collecting items of nostalgic interest. This will clearly depend on what it is we are particularly interested in but there are plenty of ideas to get you thinking and to give you a start.

This is followed by a page that gives more specific advice on how the Internet and the media can help in your quest for nostalgia. There are examples of websites and radio and television programmes that will enable you to dig back into the past.

The final page provides some information on how technology can help to convert items that we might collect, or that we already have, into more modern and convenient ways of enjoying them. So, for examples, it provides an introduction on how to convert old records into DVDs and 35mm slides into digital photos.

If you're interested in any aspect of the past, or think that you would like to get involved in some aspect of nostalgia, the Guide may well provide you with a springboard for some action. Have a read and see what you think.

This Guide to Nostalgia is written by Retirement Specialist Dave Sinclair supported by members of the LaterLife team. As well as writing on retirement matters Dave is Training Director at LaterLife and responsible for the content and continuous improvement of LaterLife's Retirement Courses.
