HoCo Curiosity Challenge
Community Resources and Services - Special Events/Projects

Description

Have You ever been curious about something? This month's community engagement theme is Wonder & Curiosity. Curiosity is one of the most reliable, yet neglected keys to happiness. By cultivating and exercising our innate sense of curiosity, a state of active interest or genuinely wanting to know more about something creates an openness to unfamiliar experiences, laying the groundwork for greater opportunities to experience discovery, joy and delight.

Curiosity allows us to see things through a different lens; we use our powers or observation more fully. It makes us more engaged, more capable of embracing opportunities, making connections, and experiencing meaning.

Therefore, Office on Aging and Independence created a list of various things that may spark your curiosity.

With your sign-up, you will receive an email with the HoCo Curiosity list that may inspire your curiosity to learn more.
