Strong Life Purpose and Values

Strong Life Purpose and Values

According to the Institute of Coaching, McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School Affiliate, “Research shows that having a strong purpose improves physical health and engagement in healthy behaviors.”

“Having a strong sense of purpose is defined by the authors as “having a set of goals based on one’s core values.””

Did you know that people who have values-based goals and a purpose are:

  • more likely to exercise more, take their medications and demonstrate healthy behaviours.
  • More open to hearing about the benefits of exercise.
  • May be more open to negative responses to health well-being messages.
