18 Photos That Take Us on a Trip Down Memory Lane

Nostalgia promotes optimism, inspiration, and creativity. It can even raise our self-esteem, according to a study. So sometimes it’s important to break away from modern reality and plunge into the world of a pleasant and nostalgic past.

Bright Side tried to guess what you remembered the most from your youth. Here you will find a lot of things that’ll make you feel good.

1. We had swings made from tires and they were also a great place to relax.
