Our individual health and happiness, while important, isn't enough. In fact, it is in finding meaning and purpose through connecting and serving others, that we are 'wired' as humans. What I'm thinking about here is the Science of the Positive and Core Principle #4 - Being Purposeful, and what got me thinking about this was an article I read titled, "Having a Purpose in Life is Healthier than Happiness." The article discusses a recent study from researchers at the University of North Carolina and the University of California at Los Angeles that "concluded that is not happiness that yields health benefits, but rather, having a purpose in life that does." I would be interested to hear your thoughts on the article, as well as, how you find ways to Be Purposeful in your life. So please post your comments here and I look forward to our conversation.
