The Science of Savouring
Savouring refers to the act of stepping outside of an experience to review and appreciate its positive impact.
We can use strategies to train our happiness, to help us shape our actions and thoughts to be happier. Savouring is one of these methods.
Savouring isn’t about escaping from present problems but instead is a tool to gain perspective and self-insight, so actually to enhance the present.
Just by making you aware (and with the help of reminders), we make you realize that you experience a lot of amazing, happy moments every day.
Sometimes all it takes is paying more attention to the small things.
Moreover, there is an interplay between wellbeing and attention: attention affects wellbeing, but wellbeing also affects attention.
The good news is that even if you are somewhat inclined to attend to negative things, you can train yourself to attend to more positive things. Studies attempting to reorient people to attend to more positive and/or less negative things have shown to have beneficial effects on wellbeing.
At hiMoment, we believe that we can help you pay attention to the happy moments in your life.
Research on grateful thinking on psychological wellbeing in daily life showed that people could maximize their happiness by regularly focusing and being consciously grateful for one’s blessings.
In order to foster your gratitude, at hiMoment we create Topics.
These Topics allow you to take a step back and notice all the beautiful hiMoments you have had in your life.
