I was reading my favorite magazine, Prevention, a few weeks ago and found an interesting article that might get some inspiration from. “About 17% of Americans are flourishers, says a study in American Psychologist. They have a positive outlook on life, a sense of purpose and community, and are healthier than ‘languishers’ – about 10% of adults who don’t feel good about themselves. Most of us fall somewhere in between. “We should strive to flourish, to find meaning in our lives,” says Corey Keyes, PhD, a professor of sociology at Emory University. “In Sardinia and Okinawa, where people live the longest, hard work is important, but not more so than spending time with family, nurturing, spirituality, and doing for others.””
It is about making progress to having balance in our life. If you haven’t yet done the wheel of life exercise on my website, complete it today and get a perspective on where you are and what you need to do to create more balance for you so you can live a longer, healthier, and balanced quality of life.
