Look for the moments of wonder (from Monday’s Harvard Business Review)
More than ever we need ways to recharge our energy, calm our anxieties and practice self-care. Finding moments that arouse awe or wonder (experiences that push you to think of ideas, topics, and people outside of yourself) can help you achieve those goals. It does not necessarily require a trip to the Grand Canyon or Niagara Falls; Noticing a starry night sky, an unexpected act of kindness or the changing colors of the leaves can be just as amazing. One simple and powerful opportunity is to take an “awe-inspiring walk” – a 20-minute break to wander, be curious and observe the beauty around you (even in a familiar place like your yard or neighborhood). If you can not get away from your desktop, take advantage of the natural wonders at your fingertips; Several studies have shown that even nature videos (check out the docu films) Earth) Can evoke our sense of awe. Not only will these little moments of wonder recharge your batteries, they will also enhance your creativity and collaboration at work.
