A glorious sunset is an epitome of fleeting beauty. For a few minutes, the sky becomes a spectacle of colors and then it's over. Yet the psychological effects of admiring sunset may persist, long after the colors have faded.
To reap the rewards of sunset, you need to stop whatever else you're doing and really notice and appreciate the show in the sky.
It's a natural tendency to stop and stare at a breathtaking sunset. And when you do so, you're likely to be caught up in the moment and your mind takes a break from roaming over the past and worrying about the future.
Some people find it easy to lose themselves in an awe-inspiring sunset. For others, slowing down to such a quiet experience does not come as readily. The instinct to stop and stare may be overridden long ago by the learned imperative to hurry up and get things done.
Afterwards, you feel refreshed and life just seems a little better.
