Meaning is an essential part of a healthy life






Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? The long title of Paul Gauguin’s famous painting raises profound, existential questions. Daily struggles have prevented the deliberation of these questions for most of human history. The remarkable recent advances in science and technology dramatically reduced the number of people living near basic subsistence. For the first time in history, the search for life's meaning through philosophical, scientific, theological, and metaphysical speculation has opened up for many. 

The radical transformation of our living conditions has left our mindset unchanged. Inferiority, fear, insecurity create conflict at home and at the office. Without goals and fulfillment, jobs provide no satisfaction. Busyness and overscheduled daily routines make us addicted to constant information flow and the adrenaline rush of being busy. The continual switch of focus serves only transient gratification; it leaves behind vulnerability and spiritual hunger. A global mental-health epidemic of depression and anxiety, the prevalence of mental diseases, and high suicide rates testifies about the human craving for meaning. 

Like a little boat that balances against every surface wave of the river, changes produce feelings entirely independent of conscious influence. Like the gyroscope, we constantly strive for psychological balance (Figure 5). In turn, well-being shows a positive association with meaning and purpose. 

Coherent stimuli predictably enhance the meaning experience. Likewise, a positive contribution to others and the world, and goal-directed behavior leads to meaning and purpose. Whether you embrace a higher power or trust the inherent interdependence of the cosmos, establishing a passion for your life creates an outline for a higher purpose. Whether growing up poor, rich, educated or ignorant, meaningful transformation requires you to step out of your comfort. If you are comfortable, try to feel the pain of others and if you feel pain, step out of your pain and allow the world to embrace you. A larger purpose beyond our welfare, financial, existential struggles is beneficial for long-term well-being.

Healthy living and exercise




You are humble, like the dirt under your feet, but your mind carries the reflection of the universe. You are a beautiful, wholesome human being, who deserves to be cherished, respected, and loved. It is your first job to live according to that truth by serving your psychological and bodily health. When you appreciate yourself, then the world takes notice and will respect you in turn. Success is about the future. Not giving the best care to your body and your mind cancels the results of your work. 

Exercise and healthy eating habits are not only for your body but also vital for the mind. A healthy regime that serves your needs and aligns with your goals creates a stable framework that underlies good motivation. The discipline of adhering to a particular eating habit introduces a regular order, which increases your confidence and self-respect. After all, your destiny is formed by the way you live every day. Even small positive steps can have a profound influence on how you feel. Systematic life changes can rejuvenate your spiritual world. 

Studies have consistently shown that exercise has a powerful positive influence on memory and executive function. Weight-bearing movements increase muscle mass and boost the biochemical foundation of the nervous system. Neurological health depends as much on signals sent by the muscles to the brain as it does on directives going to the muscles. Exercise triggers the creation of new neurons, releases feel-good hormones, improves physical and intellectual performance, and life functionality; it is the only proven fountain of youth to date. To stop or reverse the physical and executive decline during aging is a gift that extends the energy and agility of youth. Just do it. 

Active people are naturally happy.
