When we experience more “Wow” moments, we experience better physical health. In fact, we have more than just better physical health, we also have a better mood, more humility, and more life satisfaction. In addition to this, when we experience more moments that make us go “Wow”, we become better social beings and we’re more cooperative and generous.

When we feel shame, we can feel quite small. When we experience “Wow” moments, we can still feel small, but we can also feel exhilarated.

Here’s how to experience more “Wow” moments:

Think about other people’s courage and beauty – Think about how brave some of the people you know are. Consider the Black Lives Matter movement, Greta Thunberg, or someone closer to home. It’s easy to discount how courageous other people are, especially if you don’t relate to the situation. When you observe someone who blows you away, you experience more “Wow” moments. The person you observe does not need to be well-known, they could be a neighbour, a friend, or even a family member who has shown a lot of courage

Spend more time in nature – Spending more time in nature can help you to experience more of these moments. In fact, just one 15 minute walk a week can help you to feel more positive. When you’re out and about in nature, consider its vastness. It’s likely that you will experience a few “Wow” moments when you realise that nature is very powerful and beautiful. 

Create or listen to music – Listening to music can help you to feel what some people call the “Chills”. Listening to any music can make you feel good. Creating music can also make you feel this way. 

Visit more museums and art galleries – There’s a lot of incredible art out there. Why not get out and see it? You don’t have to be the world’s greatest art lover to enjoy art. Spend time at a museum and learn more about the world. Chances are you’ll also experience some “Wow” moments when you visit museums.
