MISSION, PURPOSE, CLARITY, & BALANCE
When we have a clear sense of purpose, we are more likely to take action and make decisions that align with our goals. This focus and clarity can help to calm and focus the mind, which in turn can help to reduce stress and anxiety.
A sense of mission and purpose can also help to boost our mood and energy levels. When we feel good about what we are doing and why we are doing it, we are more likely to be motivated and enthusiastic. This can lead to increased productivity and improved physical and mental health.
PURPOSE AND WELL-BEING
Studies have shown that people who have a strong sense of purpose are more likely to live longer, have lower rates of heart disease and stroke, and are less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease.
FINDING YOUR SENSE OF PURPOSE
There are many ways to develop a greater sense of mission and purpose. For some people, it may come from their religion or spiritual beliefs. Others may find it through their work or hobbies, or by volunteering for a cause they are passionate about.
Whatever your source of inspiration, having a strong and clear sense of mission and purpose can have a positive impact on your nervous system and your overall health.
Heart rate variability (HRV) is a measure of the beat-to-beat changes in heart rate. It is a well-established and clinically-validated marker of autonomic nervous system (ANS) balance, with increases in HRV indicating a more balanced ANS.
