Event description

Description

This program is suitable for adults.

Joy is what makes life beautiful and a sense of purpose is one of the keys to creating a joyous life. An eight-year study looking at memory and purpose in life found that after death, the brains of those with Alzheimer’s showed the same physical deterioration whether they had purpose in life or not. But when the researchers reviewed the memory tests they found that the scores of the people with purpose more strongly resembled subjects who did not suffer from Alzheimer’s at all. And the stronger the sense of purpose the more protective it was.


We think carefully about investing in our superannuation and other material assets yet investing in our joyous well being is the most important investment we can make in our future. A joyous life is one connected to purpose, is filled with appreciation for good things - big and small, and is one where you are connected to people you care for, who care for you and where every day you do things that bring you happiness.

Come along and find out how to build a more joyous life and live well.
