Both involve recalling an event, but reminiscing is more about a collection of fond memories from the past.
For example: The Smith family reunion is every year at Lake Tahoe. Reminiscing would be recalling where they hiked, cooking together, and building fond memories to cherish over and over again.
Remembering is more about: Where did I put my keys?
Reminiscence therapy can give the feeling of success and confidence. To share something meaningful brings joy and happiness to others.
