The month of May is National Photograph Month, and you know what that means: time to take a selfie!
Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing this month, be sure to get a lot of photos. Pics of yourself, your friends, your surroundings, your food (your body jewelry ((hint, nudge)) maybe); anything goes during this month of major photographic celebration. The value of an experience can never be measured, but there’s definitely a reason to collect a few prints.
A memory that’s captured with a good solid photo can be revisited again and again over the life of the picture, which is actually a tool for improving our health. You see, studies have proven that using photo albums or scrapbooks to remember some of the happiest times in our lives causes the release of the feel-good hormone dopamine, which combats stress and some of its harmful effects on the body. So compiling even a small collection of pics and browsing through them regularly, can actually be an effective form of meditation. Just concentrate on recalling the feelings of happiness, camaraderie, or relaxation you felt when the photo was snapped, and voila!
Looking for an extra special way to preserve those memories? Then why not try personalized photo accessories? These are items you can use your own pictures to customize, so you’ll always have those fuzzy feelings close at hand. Plus, they make wonderful gifts for friends and family, allowing everyone to share in the revelry of the good times.
Whatever way you do it, just remember to get in as many selfies as possible before June 1st, and maybe a few photo bombs too, just to get you in the spirit.
