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.
