When you launch your creation up into the sky, the wind grasps it and takes it along with it, and you can feel the rush as the kite launches into the air and sails higher and higher.
Do make sure to tug or release the flying line gently to make sure it doesn’t come collapsing to the ground. While the flying line is your only physical connection to the kite, you can feel an emotional and mental connection with the kite when you see it soar.
This emotional and mental connection that you experience during the process of making a kite and flying it has everything to do with the aftereffects of happiness that you feel. Kites do make people happy.
When you’re outside, running with the wind and taking in the freshness of your surroundings, your soul is automatically propelled out of the concrete cage of city life and into the lush green nature.
The scenic beauty and physical exercise is more than enough to release a hormone called serotonin in your brain. And guess what serotonin does? It makes you happy! It makes you so happy that you can’t help but smile and this is called a kite flier’s smile!
People from all around the world witness the kite flier’s smile spreading across their face as they launch their handmade kites into the air and connect to their environment.
