The Power and Benefits of Beauty

Howard Gardner discussed “beauty” as one of three key virtues in his 2011 book Truth, Beauty, and Goodness Reframed. According to his conceptualization, beautiful things or experiences share three characteristics: they are interesting, memorable, and worth revisiting.

Gardner’s work on beauty has subsequently been referenced in a November 2015 article on the Huffington Post‘s Healthy Living site. In the piece, life coach Pam Bauer outlines the positive benefits of beautiful environments and experiences to boost happiness with a feeling of satisfaction. She then advises readers to surround themselves with objects they find beautiful, particularly those from nature.
