A brilliant sunset, a stunning work of art, a mountain vista, an inspirational speech, or a stirring piece of music. What do all of these have in common? For many, they have the ability to trigger a feeling of awe. And more and more research is finding a link between the feeling of awe and a host of physical and emotional health benefits. It can boost joy and happiness. It can help you cope better with stress. And it may help you feel more engaged in life.
Make a list of the things that fill you with awe. Write in a journal about them, and think of ways you can include them in your life on a regular basis.
