The secret to happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life. When we notice small details like a pretty flower on the side of the road, colors of a butterfly, the laughter of a child, or the kindness of strangers, we tap into the moments of joy around us. Studies have found that the feeling of awe for natural beauty and human connection can “increase feelings of connectedness, decrease materialism, increase positive mood, and give people the sense that they have more available time.” – Dr. Summer Allen
Experiencing awe can make us feel more grateful and appreciative of the things we have in our lives. Notice a small happy detail today and share with us! Project Happiness.
