Stopping to smell the roses can give your life meaning

New research shows that we can find meaning in life by simply appreciating the beauty that’s all around us. Joshua Hicks is a professor in the department of psychological and brain sciences at Texas A&M, and he joins host Krys Boyd to discuss why appreciating small, significant moments can lead to a sense of purpose, happiness and better connection with the world around us. His article “A New Dimension to a Meaningful Life” – co-authored with Frank Martela – was published in Scientific American.
