For me, being a scientist means that you have the opportunity to include an essential skill for happiness into your life, called savoring. Savoring is when you try to fully enjoy and extend our positive experiences. You can practice savoring in almost any profession in life, but when you practice it in science, it is incredible. For example, I like to study nature, and it's an awesome way to prolong the feeling of admiring why life is the way it is. You get to fully enjoy watching the landscape, and then spend time finding out why certain things happen. You can pay special close attention to almost anything you want, and then study it. For example, say you find a plant or animal that you think is beautiful. You can find out why certain plants or animals are a certain color, or why they look the way they do. It's a great way to stay curious. Also, being a scientist means that you get to meet some of the coolest people out there.
