    Need to Re-capture your Curious Nature?

    Observe a baby. He wakes up to see a familiar face: kicks his legs, furrows his brow and demonstrates a genuine expression of amazement at the babbling being before him. His curiosity piques even further when another face appears, perhaps Dad or Grandma. This excitement is truly organic and delightful.

    Do you remember the last time you felt this sense of excitement or curiosity over another?  Over your Self?

    3 Ways to Recapture your Curious Nature

    1. Get back to nature – go for a walk near a body of water, along a safe forest path or in any peaceful, natural setting.  Take deep breaths and listen to your own footsteps as you walk.  Drink in every sensation and observe the moment.

    2. Feel the sun on your skin – Vitamin D is a powerful instigator to getting into the moment. Easy enough to say when you don’t live somewhere tropical, however no matter! Even if you are living in a cold winter climate, see if you can get outside on even the coldest of days, when the sun is out and relish a brief moment(s) of soleil on your epidermis.  Research has shown that lack of vitamin D may be one of many factors that contribute to a depressed mood.

    3. Turn on your favourite tunes and get dancing!  Dance has been shown to boost mood more than exercise alone. In a study at the University of London, researchers assigned patients with anxiety disorders to spend time in one of four therapeutic settings: a modern-dance class, an exercise class, a music class, or a math class. Only the dance class significantly reduced anxiety.

    If all else fails, a breath of ‘fresh air’, or at least some breaths in the great outdoors – whether in cold or warm climates – does wonders for picking up low moods, and potentially returning you to a natural state of curiosity and relaxation.
