As you grow older and perhaps retire from your job, it’s only natural to wonder what to do with yourself or how best to fill your time. You might even elevate your thinking to consider what’s your purpose in life– what are you meant to do as you enter this new stage? Well, according to a new study published in JAMA Psychiatry, finding your purpose as you age may not only prove emotionally rewarding but it may lead to a more physically robust and healthier life for your later years. And according to Kaiser Health News journalist Judith Graham, finding that purpose doesn’t necessarily mean some grandiose concept of your place in the universe- rather, it could be as simple as developing some new skills or finding enjoyable activities. And the results? Not only the pleasure of these new endeavors but you may also develop healthier habits or be less stressed, leading to overall better health.
