We have all experienced this. When we see a thing, the memory of it will come back in our minds no matter how many years have passed. This is the power of memory. What follows is our feelings and emotional reaction to this memory. Reminders of happy memories can bring back pleasant feelings tied to the original experience, regulate positive emotion and promote better well-being. This paper will focus on using emotional design to generate and recall positive memories in order to develop healthy relationships.
