Research shows a sense of being may improve one's mood
How many times have you woken up, stepped out of bed and felt completely unmotivated to complete your daily tasks? Do you have a job, family and friends that you love, but still can't seem to find fulfillment? This may be due to a lack of belief in your inner being and true destiny.
One way to boost your mood and overall outlook on life is to lean back on spirituality, according to a study published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin journal. As LiveScience.com reports, a sense of purpose in life can do wonders for your emotions and help you get by easier on a daily basis.
"We find that having a really spiritual day, committing to a power higher than yourself, carefully considering a purpose larger than yourself, it ends up leading to a lot of well-being," said Todd Kashdan, a psychologist and one of the authors of the study. "We find profound levels of meaning in life, greater positive emotions, less negative emotions, higher self-esteem."
