The Biological Advantage of Being Awestruck

Here is a link to a video by Jason Silva that’s sure to blow your mind on a Monday morning.  It’s only about 3 minutes long and worth every second.

From a Stanford study, it has been found that exposure to ‘awe’ at regular intervals leads to an increase in empathy, compassion, increased feelings of altruism and general well being.

I found it on Facebook via Rev. Dr. Margaret Aymer Oget.

Many thanks!
