The Value of Having a Purpose

GirlswithPlanetI recently was a panelist at the American Association of University Women  to discuss holistic approaches to women’s health, where I found myself talking a lot about purpose in life.  What is the point of investing in your health, being proactive, and preventing health challenges down the road?  The point is so that you can feel strong enough to fulfill your purpose(s) in life.

So, it was timely to see this new research study (NOT that we need to spend millions on research studies to prove what we all know intuitively) on the value of having a purpose in life. Click here to read more about the study that included 7,000 Americans, as published by the BBC News.

For some, one’s purpose in life is to go above and beyond the call of duty to improve our local community and the quality of life for children and their families.  The Above and Beyond Awards gala does an excellent job of honoring those people, in the trenches, who are doing just that.  The local Above and Beyond Awards gala is being held this June 21st, 2014 at the Wyndham Avenue of the Arts Hotel.  Click here to register and please contact me at 949-715-9321 if you are interested or know someone who is interested in participating as a sponsor at the event.  The list of honorees is impressive and learning about their tireless contributions  is humbling and inspiring!

In health,

Dr. Gina

    I once read that only about one in twenty of the working population have an answer (or at least a good answer) as to why they get up and into work each day. And i suspect this is not only transmitted from parents to children but that schools might find teaching a lot easier and rewarding if at least they then worked on first instilling a purpose in children.
