Happiness is overrated. Opt for purpose instead.

Rather than striving for hedonic well-being (happiness), you may be better off working on eudaimonia  — the sense that you’re living a life of purpose. The lion’s share of well-being goes to those who focus on building meaning into their lives, writes physician Dhruv Khullar. A sense of life purpose has been tied to better sleep and a lower risk of dementia, stroke, and heart disease. Even better, you can build a sense of purpose at any time in life. Have conversations about what’s meaningful to you, and perhaps find activities in support of that purpose. Who knows? You might end up happy anyway.
