About The Humane Space
The Humane Space is a lifestyle company dedicated to enriching your inner world through curiosity, awe, and lifelong learning. Through The Humane Space app, we curate multimedia stories and thoughtful daily prompts that feed curiosity and widen perspective, encouraging you to consider the worlds beyond and within.
Lifelong learning is a form of voluntary, self-motivated education that typically takes place outside of a formal educational institution, such as a school or university. According to Procedia, a social and behavioral science journal, lifelong learning “not only enhances social inclusion, active citizenship and individual development, but also increases competitiveness and employability.” Research suggests that lifelong learning can keep our brains healthy and increase our sense of fulfillment and self-esteem.
Curiosity is an often overlooked key to greater fulfillment in life. It’s correlated with higher levels of positive emotions, lower levels of anxiety, and greater psychological well-being. Of the 24 character strengths measured by the Via Institute On Character, curiosity was one of the most strongly linked to life satisfaction, work satisfaction, living a pleasurable life, living an engaging life, and living a meaningful life.
Experiencing awe has been found to increase feelings of well-being,life satisfaction and sense of meaning. A 2021 study found that people who feel more awe reported feeling lowered levels of daily stress – suggesting that the sense of vastness that awe elicits can help put our worries into perspective.
