Exercise 1: Expressing memories

Part A: Think of a memory that you remember vividly. It should be a memory that comes easily to you.
Part B: Why do you think you remember this so well? Try connecting one or more emotions to this memory.
Part C: Now try and express your memory and emotion in some way. The goal is to get it out of your head. Here are some ideas for what you could do.
  • Verbally: Tell your memory to someone that you know. Can you make them feel the emotion?
  • Written: Write your memory in less than a page. Do the emotions come out in your words?
  • Visually: Express your memory using only lines and shapes. Do the emotions come out in your drawings? example
