This workbook helps you live a meaningful life by finding and living your purpose using science-based strategies. It combines an engaging narrative, stories from people’s lives, and research-informed exercises and worksheets designed to help you cultivate a rich sense of meaning and purpose. Science really can answer life’s big questions, such as “why am I here,” as shown by a wave of recent research in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and medicine.
The research highlights that such questions are vital, since people who lack a rich sense of purpose have significantly worse mental and physical health. The vast majority of guidance on meaning and purpose comes from traditional sources such as cultural heritage and religion. While this guidance works for some, unfortunately traditional sources of meaning and purpose do not speak nearly so well to others who want an evidence-based approach in which they can be truly confident. This workbook offers science-based strategies and data-driven tools to help you improve your mental and physical health by finding the meaning of your life and thus living with a purpose. Read this book to find your purpose using science!
