curiosity is the mother of invention, they say…
if you’re driven to seek knowledge because you genuinely want to know the answer to something, that’s curiosity. it’s different from seeking knowledge simply because you have to, like in school or at work
curious people tend to be better at problem-solving, creative thinking, collaboration and building connections. when you follow your curiosity and get information or answers, your brain rewards you with a delightful hit of dopamine, which makes you feel a little bit happier
in today’s digital age, we’re surrounded by glowing screens demanding our attention. our smart tech, phones and computers help us satisfy our curiosity in a digital second, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing… in fact, it’s pretty cool. but let’s make sure we don’t forget to put down the devices, step away from our screens and discover all the fascinating and curious things that happen in the real world
is there something you’ve always been curious about trying, or somewhere exciting you’ve been itching to visit ? breaking free from the norm and pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone can expand your horizons and show you just how capable you are. so pursue your curiosity whenever possible. don’t worry too much about what could go wrong and instead, be excited about what could go right. if we do things that make us happy and keep us curious, then benefits and rewards should hopefully follow. the upside can be huge, the downside is just more knowledge, and little hits of dopamine !
