At some point in everyone’s life, they experience goosebumps. Whether it’s their first time being scared, their first time going to a horror movie, the awe inspiring beauty of a natural waterfall, or things such as the birth of their first child, most people can relate to the feeling of awe. Recently, researchers have decided to study the effects of humans and what happens when they experience awe. When we experience awe, we immediately get goosebumps. Goosebumps are the result of muscles around hair follicles tensing up in different parts of the body. Some people can get goosebumps on their arms, their legs, and even the back of their neck. Science has discovered that this event happens when we witness a situation or circumstance that goes beyond our natural train of thought. If we see a beautiful waterfall for the first time, the very image of that can transcend the realm of our mind. Scientists conducted a study in a willing group of individuals to see what awe did in terms of their outlook on life. One group of people were told to stare at a beautiful blossoming tree for a minute and a half. Another group of people were told to stare at a science building. After both groups completed their task, they returned to their starting point. An actor dropped a bucket of pens, and those who stared at the blossoming tree were 76 percent more likely to help that individual. Scientists believe that because awe inspiring experiences transcend our mind, it also expands our mind. Being able to experience such things give people a new perspective. Researchers have advised people to go out and see the world. Step away from individualism and connect with people and nature.
