The purpose of life is a life of purpose.

Wellness Tip:

Find Your Sense of Purpose

Research says those with a sense of purpose are happier and live longer. So, what’s yours?

If that’s a daunting question, remember that purpose doesn’t have to be about big things like solving world problems. Giving your best at work or for your family counts too. 

Building community and connecting with others is one way to discover your purpose. Another is cultivating gratitude and engaging in altruistic behaviors (e.g., volunteering). This article delves deeper into six things you can do to find your purpose, so check it out if you need some inspiration.

Productivity Tip:

Use Active Reading

Ever feel like you’re reading a lot, but the info doesn’t quite stick? Try active reading. It’s a way to enhance your comprehension and recall of information. Here’s how:

  • Give your material a quick once-over. Look at headings and summaries before reading.
  • Ask yourself questions while reading and hunt for answers in the text.
  • Take notes. Jot down key points, ideas, and questions as you go.
  • After each section or chapter, pause and summarize what you’ve learned in your own words.
  • Regularly go back over your notes to reinforce your understanding.


Give these strategies a try during your next reading session. You’ll be amazed at how much more you remember.

Routine Breakdown

Susanna Kenyon-Muir, Life Coach & Founder of Who Am I

Sunsanna Kenyon-Muir

Susanna says her morning routine is her sacred time. “There are a few things I will always do, and I love to habit stack (I’ll combine 3 habits in succession).” She:

  • Starts with a meditation or does Reiki on herself. “Both give me a level of grounding that supports my mental well-being for the day.”
  • Stretches or does a few simple exercises to get her body flowing.
  • Journals. “Writing my thoughts and intentions for the day helps me to get into the space of what energy I want to be in and how I want to feel.”
  • Walks while listening to a podcast. “I absolutely LOVE this. It’s also an opportunity to respond to messages via voice notes, reply to quick emails and get my daily inspiration whilst taking in nature around me.”


Why it works:

  • Though not widely researched, studies on Reiki show effectiveness in reducing stress, anxiety, and pain. Meditation has oh so many benefits.
  • Stretching gets the blood flowing and keeps you flexible.
  • Is journaling good for mental health? Absolutely. Plus, intention-setting is powerful at keeping your days on track.
  • Movement, nature, and absorbing something inspiring is a winning combination.


Susanna says she doesn’t always manage all the steps but aims for at least three, listening to what her body and mind need that day. Do you keep your routine flexible?
