Pause For A Moment

Photos hold the key to our memories and evoke feelings of happiness, joy and positivity whenever we look back at them. This is why we think it is so important to take the time to reflect on all the great times you’ve enjoyed and to look back on the memories that mean the most – especially at a time where making new ones has been put on pause.

When was the last time you took a moment to reflect?

Even when things feel uncertain, there are plenty of ways to add a moment of happiness to our day. From photographs through to treasured memories and beloved stories we love to tell, we think now is the perfect time to reflect on what brings you the most joy.

We conducted some research to find out what Brits do to help themselves take time out and relax and, turns out, it’s true! Looking back at our photos makes us feel good.

Reflect On Happy Memories

With 56% of respondents sharing that they feel happy when looking at photos and 31% of people find looking at photos relaxing, it’s safe to say that our memories mean a lot to us.

However, only 6% of us print our photographs – which means a considerable amount of memories are kept out of sight and out of mind. With looking at photos proven to make us relax, what better reason do you need to create your very own CEWE PHOTOBOOK?

Whether you are documenting a holiday you’ve previously enjoyed together, collating photos of the children throughout the years or want to let someone know just how much they mean to you, a photo book allows you to capture the smiles from yesterday and remember them today.

Say hello to our XL Square CEWE PHOTOBOOK. The square element provides a fresh, modern look that’s ideal for displaying your best Instagram images, landscape and portrait photographs. This makes it the perfect choice when creating a unique, aesthetic album of your beautiful travel snaps.

With the award winning, intuitive CEWE Creator Software, looking back through your photos and turning them into a cherished photo book couldn’t be easier. Download now and see for yourself.

Why Photos Make Us Happy by Behavioural Psychologist Jo Hemmings

“It’s never been easier to take a photo – or indeed to post one on social media. They are the visual language of our lives. But because of that ease, we often forget to look back at our carefully curated photos, and that means we are missing out on all the joy that they can bring. They remind us of people, pets, places and activities that we love as well as remembering the past.

This has been shown to reduce our stress and enhance our mood and overall well-being. Research has also shown that having ‘real’ photos in our home, provides regular psychological positive reinforcement by reminding us of ‘social bond enhancement’ – essentially what and who are important to us!”
