Description
Information
Dr. Victor Strecher, a pioneer in the field of behavioral science and a Professor at the University of Michigan School of Public Health, offers a groundbreaking work on how finding your purpose in life leads to better health and overall happiness. Your body is the boat. You need wind in your sails. You need a rudder. But as that Greek philosopher Seneca said 2,000 years ago, it doesn't matter how much wind is in your sails if you're not steering toward a harbor-an ultimate purpose in your life. This ancient philosophical subject is now the subject of groundbreaking scientific research. New studies of Alzheimer's, heart disease, stroke, depression, functional brain imaging, and measurement of DNA repair are coming together to unravel the mystery of purpose, and how and why it benefits our lives. The Science of Purpose explores the incredible connection between purposeful living and the latest scientific evidence for improving quality of life and longevity. It's a must read for those seeking lasting improvement in their lives, but who have had enough of fads, opinions, and false hopes from thousands of self-help books by so-called experts. Living a purposeful life requires "wind in the sails" and a "rudder." The Science of Purpose shows how to acquire both, offering an elegant strategy for improving daily energy and willpower, and long term happiness and health. The author, Dr. Vic Strecher, integrates these core themes with a very personal story-a tragedy that led him to reconsider his own life-and how a deeper understanding of purposeful living helped him not only survive, but thrive. The Science of Purpose is illuminating, accessible, and authentically grounded in real people's lives.
