There are many different ways to find meaning to our lives. People who have meaning and purpose in their lives are happier, feel more in control and get more out of what they do. Finding meaning is about connecting to something bigger than ourselves. Research suggests that having meaning in our lives has a positive impact on our wellbeing.
A good approach to find your meaning is to consciously think about what jobs, people, morals or beliefs we have and reflect on these. It may be being part of a belief community or doing a job that makes a positive impact on society.
