Everyone has at various times felt an overwhelming wave of awe wash over them. Whether it was standing at the peak of a mountain looking down into a valley, or staring up into the vastness of space and trying to fathom all the stars in the universe, or even in the way someone rushes to help out a stranger.

As we get older, this feeling can become a little more difficult to feel, because we settle into our routines and into our perspectives. But actively reintroducing this feeling could work wonders for your health, social life, and overall well-being.

According to NBC Better, psychologists say the emotion of awe can actually make you happier, and it may be an essential component to the harmony of our species.
