We have had activities to practice generating awe as something that can give us well being and ease. The BBC has now shown in a study: “a range of significant results evidencing not only that watching content from Planet Earth II inspired significant increases in feelings of awe, contentedness, joy, amusement and curiosity, but that it also acted to reduce feelings of tiredness, anger and stress.” It has released footage of the series that will give you access to 50 hours of the earth unplugged. Feel free to set the playlist to run in the background as you work or take breaks and feast your eyes as well as your ears. Wonderful.
Today, find a way to make this wonderful playlist part of your finding daily stillness routines. You may want to read the article about the BBC’s happiness project too. Or you can explore the website with various tailored options, one of which is to ‘have happiness sent daily to your inbox’. What’s not to like? HT to our Friends at Open Culture for making us aware of this wonderful resource.
