Are you satisfied with your life? If not, is that affecting your health?

Research from the University of British Columbia finds that higher life satisfaction is associated with better physical, psychological and behavioral health.

The research found that higher life satisfaction is linked to health and well-being outcomes including:

26% reduced risk of mortality

46% reduced risk of depression

25% reduced risk of physical functioning limitations

12% reduced risk of chronic pain

14% reduced risk of sleep problem onset

8% higher likelihood of physical activity

Higher optimism, purpose in life and mastery, lower hopelessness and loneliness.

But what if your life isn't how you pictured it would be?

Are your health issues affecting your mental health?

Or, is your mental health affecting y our physical health?

If your level of satisfaction is not what you would hope, then it may be time to reframe how you view your life. And even change the lens through which you view it. What if the difficulties were a way to grow you into the version that you were created to be?

And what if you were never even designed to carry it yourself anyway?

Isaiah 40:29-31 says, "He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles: they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."

If you are feeling discouraged or a lack of satisfaction in your life, I would love to speak with you to pray with you or even help guide you through small, simple changes that you could make that might drastically improve your health!
