Yearning to find your life purpose and have a meaningful life? Journaling is an excellent science-based strategy to do so.
Journaling is part of a broader range of activities that involve self-reflection on one's sense of meaning and purpose. Scientific evidence reveals that such self-reflection contributes greatly to developing that personal sense of meaning and purpose. For instance, one study used functional magnetic resonance imaging of the brain to show that it is really important to infuse meaning and purpose into the stories we tell ourselves about our lives.
This video describes 5 specific journaling prompts to develop a rich and deep sense of life purpose and help you live a meaningful life, and how you can adapt them to your own personal search for meaning and purpose.
