5 Ways Curiosity Can Save Your Life

Curiosity may have killed the cat, but did you know that it could actually save your life?

I’m not talking about being curious about how fast a car goes on a crowded street, I’m talking about turning your mediocre existence into a stimulating lifestyle.

Being curious means that you are involved in the world around you. It means that you get the most out of life. It’s curiously powerful.

Most new discoveries in life came from someone wanting to know more. Our greatest inventions and groundbreaking cures all come from taking that one extra look into something new, and trying something different because you just want to know if it will work.

So don’t sit idly by as the world around you is waiting to be explored. Tap into your inner child and reignite that desire to explore every corner and turn over every stone.

Here are 5 ways curiosity can save your life by helping you to live it to the fullest:

 

1. It helps maintain an active and healthy brain

Curious people are always the ones asking questions and searching for solutions. Their minds never rest. The brain is a muscle that can only become stronger when it is being used on a daily basis. By exploring and challenging ideas, you are building one mean fighting machine of a brain.

“I could not, at any age, be content to take my place by the fireside and simply look on. Life was meant to be lived. Curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.” -Eleanor Roosevelt

2. It strengthens your relationships

Being curious about people and the world around you can make your social life blossom. Think about a typical conversation. A person can tell you something, but then typically, you’ll ask more questions to help expand on the topic. That’s curiosity working for you. When you’re able to show interest in another person, they enjoy spending time with you. No one likes talking to the guy who spaces out.

 

3. It allows you to have new ideas

When you become curious about something, your mind can begin to formulate new ideas around it. Curiosity helps the mind recognize and focus on new ideas so that you can expand on them. If Thomas Edison lacked curiosity, he never would have been one of the greatest inventors of all time. That light bulb never would have gone off. That’s a dark thought.

 

4. It creates opportunities

By being curious, you will be able to see a lot of opportunities you may not have been able to see before. There is so much hidden to the naked eye. So much that we have to explore in order to truly see and get a sense of. It takes a curious mind to look beneath the surface and discover these possibilities.

 

5. It builds excitement 

Curious people lead lives that are far from boring. Always remaining curious means your time is never spent being dull. There are always new things that attract curious minds. Instead of being bored, curious people have an adventurous life. Who wouldn’t want to be adventurous?

“If you really want to succeed, you’ll have to go for it every day like I do. The big time isn’t for slackers. Keep up your mental stamina and remain curious. I think that bored people are unintelligent people.” – Donald Trump

So by now you must be thinking, “I’m not sure if I’m curious enough. How do I become more of a curious person?” I’m glad you asked. Because that means you’re curious.

Here are a few quick tips to help you tap into your creativity even more:

  • Be open-minded: You cannot learn if you are not willing to.
  • Appreciate everything: Try to dig deeper beneath the surface of what is around you.
  • Never stop asking questions: A sure way to dig deeper beneath the surface is by asking questions:  Who, what, when, where, and how.
  • Never consider something boring: Curious people see fun in everything.
  • Read more: Reading introduces you to different worlds you may not otherwise spend time in.

Seeing the big picture helps in making the best decisions to keep you on track towards your vision. Around Thanksgiving, on a beautiful Saturday, we took our son to a pumpkin patch farm together with one of his friends where they got to see and feed bunch of farm animals. We took a small farm train pulled by a tractor to wander around the farm, pick their pumpkins and few other fun activities. My favorite was the haystack maze! It proved to me once more the importance of seeing the bigger picture to make the right decisions. (more…)
