Then we help them find opportunities to match their passion with commitment to deepen their sense of purpose.

Longevity Tip

A recent study . . . discovered having a sense of purpose, direction and goals may add years to our lives. It doesn’t matter when you discover your purpose (i.e., young, middle-aged, or older) but the sooner the better.  The study looked at 6,100 Americans aged 20 through 75 over a 14 year period.  During that time, about 9% of the subjects died.  All the participants who died scored lower than those who survived on measures of “purposefulness.”  Even when other variables, such as a having a positive outlook, were controlled for, the data stood up.
