Time for an Awe Walk ...


In a recent issue of Psychology Today a study found evidence that a regular dose of awe (an overwhelming sense of wonder and appreciation) can boost positive feelings. An “awe walk” is a stroll in which you intentionally shift your attention to the outside world rather than becoming wrapped up in your own worries and concerns. The walk should last around 15 minutes once a week and while on the walk you are asked to find something which makes you look “in awe and wonder”. For example it can be anything from a stunning view to a spider’s frosted web.

The Sunday Club leaders and children have been trying the benefits of an “Awe Walk” for the past few weeks and have been taking photos of their “awe moments” and here are just a few of them.
