Here’s an interesting tidbit from the May issue of the Journal of Psychological Science…
“An analysis of data provided by over 6000 people reveals that if individuals feel they have a purposeful life, then they typically live longer and have more positive relationships. Lead researcher Dr. Patrick Hill explains: Our findings point to the fact that finding a direction for life, and settling overarching goals for what you want to achieve can help you actually live longer, regardless of when you find your purpose. So, the earlier someone comes to a direction for life, the earlier these protective effects may be able to occur.”
More time to do what you’re meant to do? And better relationships in the process? Ok, yeah, sign me up!
