Let me do something to you.
Look good, now, not a quickie.
Go ahead, click on it…make it big.
Let that jaw hit the floor, don’t
hurry to pick it up.
Did you feel it?
Want me to do it again?
Okay, I will…
Felt good, right?
Yeeaah, buddy. Know what that was?
Many of us have experienced the link between our emotions and the physical response in our bodies. For example, fear releases adrenaline, which quickens our heart beat and triggers the fight or flight response. Researchers at Cal-State Berkeley, recently, studied the link between “awe” and our immune system. They found that those of us who experience more positive emotions, particularly awe, had healthier levels of cytokines than those of us who are grump asses. Cytokines are proteins, that in lower levels, support our immune system, however, in higher levels lead to inflammation and disease. While these researches couldn’t exactly agree on why the link exists, they could agree that witnessing nature is a sure-fire way to get the ball rolling. And thanks to modern technology and some stunningly talented photographers walking this Earth, we can appreciate ourselves some stunning nature…with or without leaving our living rooms…can I get an Awomen?

All this awe is making me hungry. See you soon….
