Having a sense of purpose in life or the need to fulfill a greater goal or ambition for others or our selves, is a key component of your psychological health. People who find meaning in what they do and who they are and lead a goal-directed life; have improved health and mental satisfaction, as they get older.

Positive thoughts and attitudes have also been linked to strengthening the immune system and decrease stress. Studies have shown that optimism and life satisfaction are associated with lower rick of heart disease.
