Nostalgia is good for our health, and it may even help with pain management, according to researchers. In one study, they found that people who looked at photos that triggered childhood memories felt less pain than those who looked at modern pictures. So the next time we experience headache or body aches, we know what to do — dust off those photo albums hiding on our shelves, sit back, relax, and relive the good old times.

To start off your trip down memory lane, Bright Side collected 17 funny vintage photos shared by people online, and maybe they’ll remind you of your own younger years too.
