Happy Holidays to you all. Thanks to all my readers and those who have shared what they learn with me as much as I try to share my ideas with you.
The holidays are often a time of quiet, dark and opportunities to gather with friends, family, co-workers and neighbours to say goodbye to one year and begin to welcome a new one. For some it is a profound celebration of faith and love. Some find it a time to reflect on life’s meaning and purpose.
If you think wealth is the key to finding meaning, you might be surprised to learn that a newly released study in the journal Psychological Science has found that those in economically poorer countries have a greater sense of meaning than those in wealthier ones.
Wealth actually has little to do with happiness (although it can sustain health). If you’re looking to enhance your happiness this holiday season, Forbes published a science-based list of methods to enhance that feeling includes exercises and sleep, spending time with loved ones, practice mindfulness meditation, moving closer to work and practicing gratitude.
I am grateful for your attention, feedback and contributions and wish you all a season of joy and meaning in whatever way brings you happiness and health.
