Jonah Paquette, PsyD is passionate about sharing the science of well-being to a broad audience, including schools, businesses, professional organisations and health professionals.

In his book Awestruck he explores the science of awe and It turns out, Awe is one of those experiences that can truly improve our mental health, physical well-being, social relationships and more.

Over the past 5 to 10 years a great deal of research has begun to emerge on the science of awe here are some of the exciting findings so far:

  • Awe boost positive emotional states, such as gratitude and compassion.
  • Awe makes us more curious and creating in our thinking.
  • Awe reduces inflammation in our body which is a good thing as high levels of inflammation have been linked to a host of problems including depression and cardiovascular disease.
  • Awe makes us more generous towards others.
  • Awe gives us an expanded sense of time, a welcome antidote to the widespread feelings of ‘time poverty’ may of us feel these days.
  • Awe improves our critical thinking skills, allowing us to solve problems more effectively.
