Curiosity

I just read an article that really sparked some interest in me. It was all about how investigating curiosity in our lives can make us a happier person. The main message was how sometimes we get so caught up in doing things the same old way over and over leading to boredom and sometimes unhappiness.

There was a little story told about how one guy worked in a potato chip factory and whose job it was to make sure they all looked good and no bad ones got through to packaging. You can imagine how bored he could have gotten watching potato chips slide by down the belt. To create more curiosity he made a game of trying to find potato chips that looked like famous people like Elvis or Lincoln. Because of this he had fun and was always engaged looking for the next cool chip to snatch up.

How can you add more curiosity in your everyday life?
