Sense of purpose=healthier heart
This is defined also as the feeling that life is worth living. This is not just a general notion--the researchers found a high sense of purpose was linked to a 23% reduction in death from all causes and a 19% reduced rate of heart attack.
This was not original research--but the examination of 10 relevant studies--totalling 137,000 people.
Could this--possibly--be positive thinking? You know how I feel about the unicorn and rainbows stuff.
Actually, I think it's broader--a goal, a mission, no time to die.
