Close your eyes. Now picture yourself standing outside. The temperature is about 75 degrees, the air smells fresh, the sun is lightly beating on your face and there is a gentle breeze crossing over you that feels a bit warm but cool at the same time. Ah, you can almost feel it right? Now I ask you, why does a gentle breeze feel so darn good?
Check out the second episode of Science Behind Happiness, a brand new HooplaHa Original Series and let the happiness science expert, TJ McKenna from the Connecticut Science Center unlock the secrets behind life's simple pleasures using a little scientific reasoning.
TJ explains the reasons why a breeze feels so delightful. It tickles our skin, awakens our senses and brings us to our happy place! On a warm day, especially, not much else feels better than a nice breeze. It is so refreshing... but do you know why?
