Posting a picture for Throwback Thursday can do more than get you some “likes” on Instagram. It can boost happiness and help relieve work burnout! According to psychologist Dr. Scott Haltzman, looking at a fun picture of yourself as a kid can re-energize you in as little as 60-seconds! That’s because reflecting on happy childhood memories kick-starts the production of happy brain chemicals, like oxytocin – which produces a feeling of alert calmness. So any time you’re feeling run down and frazzled, scroll through your gallery of Throwback Thursday pictures for a pick-me-up.
