A glorious sunset is the epitome of fleeting beauty. For a few minutes, the sky is a spectacle of color — and then it’s over. Yet the psychological effects of admiring the sunset may persist long after the color has faded.
3 Benefits of Sunset Gazing
Allowing yourself to be captivated by a sunset may have a number of psychological benefits.
Emotional wellbeing. In general, people who feel connected with nature report being happier and having more positive emotions than those who don’t share this connection. Yet it’s clear that some people get more joy from an hour in the park than others.
Concern for others. Another study by expert found that the positive emotions aroused by natural beauty led to increased pro sociality — feelings and behaviors characterized by concern for others. In one experiment, volunteers first looked at pictures of nature scenes and then played a game, which allowed them to be generous or stingy about giving away points to other players. The nature images had been prerated to determine how beautiful people thought they were. Volunteers who viewed beautiful nature images gave away more points, compared to those who viewed less attractive pictures.
One theory is that appreciation for the beauty of nature is so powerful because it’s instinctual rather than learned. There’s a natural tendency to stop and stare at a breathtaking sunset. When you do so, you’re likely to be caught up in the moment, and your mind gets a break from fretting over the past or worrying about the future. Afterward, you feel refreshed, and life just seems a little better.
Yet when you slow down to enjoy a sunset, you are accomplishing some very important things. If your sunsetgazing skills are rusty, try these tips:
Grab a camera or sketchpad. For this purpose, the goal is to really see the sunset and capture the momenttomoment experience, not create an artistic image.
