Check out Meaning and Mindfulness | Having Difficult Times?

the-road

Hi, here is an invitation to you to check out my updated page on Meaning and Mindfulness:

Having Difficult Times?

“…this striving to find a meaning in one’s life is the primary motivational force in man.” Viktor Frankl

Having difficult times or difficulties in life? Struggling to find your meaning and purpose? I offer you a way to discover and unfold your meaning. In my new online course, I share my thoughts on life with meaning. Introducing my new 30-Day, 3 minute per day, online training course, to help you discover your meaning in challenging times:

Introduction

A lack of meaning might be called a malaise of our times. When we encounter challenges in life, often we discover that we can’t find a center, a way to cope. What is it all about?

Studies measuring meaning and purpose in life have found that meaning in life mediates uncontrollable stress and substance abuse, depression, anxiety and self-derogation, among others. This meaning or deepest human value, this WHY, points us to reach beyond ourselves, to enrich our lives, and to unfold a deep fulfillment in our work and personal lives.

About This Program

This program offers daily ways for you to overcome difficult situations, to help you to find the WHY that will energize and animate your life. In finding your own WHY, in discovering your meaning and your purpose, your pain will be lessened. You will discover ways to unfold meaning, as well as a personal calling through tasks that you can fulfill, relationships that you can strengthen and enrich, and attitudes that you can develop and cultivate.This practical, inspiring, and potentially life-changing program will take you step by step through a process towards a more fulfilled and enriched working and personal life.

Some of the benefits:

It’s fast: Daily 2 to 3 video minutes a day over 30 days – each day a different story, lesson, and small action on discovering meaning

It’s fun: Each video contains a story, lesson, and action from me.

It works: People experience an average 46% improvement while taking the Program – and that data is tracked and available for you.

Why is Discovering Meaning Important for Your Personal and Working Life?

avanoo.com-carolknox

In living a more meaning-full life, one can get a deep sense of purpose both in one’s personal and working life. Research by Steger, Oishi and Kasdan, in a paper entitled: Meaning in life across the life span: Levels and correlates of meaning in life from adolescence to older adulthood, showed that the:
“more meaning in life people reported, the greater well-being they experienced, at all life stages.”

In the words of Viktor Frankl in Man’s Search for Meaning:

What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person’s life at a given moment”.

One of the ways described by Frankl for discovering this meaning is through helping others.

Research by Fave, Brdar, Wissing and Vell-Brodrick in the paper: Sources and motives for personal meaning in adulthood, bears out that across cultures and age groups, one of the most important ways of discovering meaning is through relationships, including relationships with family. Other ways are through work, religion, experiences and pursuits.

Frankl said that in experiencing something or encountering someone we discover meaning. By intentionally turning our focus to how we create value for others, whom we impact or encounter in our work and personal lives, in these moments, we are discovering our own meaning. In this way we are able to live a more meaning-full life and enjoy a greater sense of well-being over all our life stages.

Finding Meaning in Suffering ~ 30-Day Online Program

Calming the Storm Program 2.jpg

See this Scientific American article on finding meaning in suffering, highlighting useful insights from research on “post-traumatic growth” by Kasley Killam: http://www.scientificamerican.com/…/how-to-find-meaning-in…/

By searching for good in something terrible or painful, Killam points out how this adversity can act as a “…catalyst for advancing to a higher level of psychological functioning.” These struggles can be a springboard to reach “…greater meaning and transformation.”
