STUDY FINDS THAT FINDING MEANING IS CRITICAL TO “THE GOOD LIFE” REGARDLESS OF AGE
The research, which compares attitudes toward having “meaning” or a sense of “purpose” in life for those age 25 to 74, revealed that while the extended recession has had a noticeable impact on people’s lives–particularly in financial areas–its impact has been relatively modest in terms of meaning and purpose.
“Meaning Really Matters: The MetLife Study on How Purpose Is Recession”Proof and Age”Proof,” is a follow”up to 2009’s “Discovering What Matters,” which looked at the 45″ to 74″year”old group only.
The study is accompanied by a worksheet that helps people plan for “the Good Life” by having them answer a series of questions that will lead to an outline for vision and purpose in their lives.
