Does life ever sometimes seem like one big long to-do list?
With too much to do and not enough time to do it, life can easily become a grind. We often think that an easier life would be a happier life, but in many cases that’s not so. Once you get beyond food and shelter, humans have two fundamental needs, connection and meaning. Parenting expert Amy McCready refers to the two big needs as belonging and significance.
The reason a life of endless to-dos feels hollow, is not because there’s too much to do, it’s because none of it is emotionally satisfying. Without meaning, or connection, life is flat. The secret to making your life happier is sometimes as simple as a shift in perspective.
Here are three groups of people that can help you push the reset button. Word of warning, these are often groups that others shy away from. But I promise you if you spend some time connecting with these groups, you’ll start seeing your own life in a context that improves your daily experience.
