Why not use World Photography Day to inspire people to take notice of their surroundings? Studies have shown that being more mindful of your surroundings can generate positive emotions. And among the other good things they do for our bodies and minds, positive emotions actually increase our peripheral vision – meaning the more you take notice the happier you become – and the more you can see!
Watch this youtube clip and boost your kindness by sending kind thoughts to someone you love—and to someone you don’t particularly like! And feel better.
