How to cultivate satisfaction

What makes you feel truly alive? Is it your relationships with family and friends? Does the completion of a satisfying project at work make you feel on top of the world? Or is it painting a picture, writing a song, or tending your orchids which gives you satisfaction? Aristotle said that happiness is an activity of the soul in accordance with virtue. How happy are you? How active is your soul?

Since the health of your soul is essential for your total health, future blog entries on the Goods of the Soul will include:

  1. How your life is affected by your emotions
  2. Regenerating yourself through creativity
  3. Satisfaction in your work- how to find it
  4. Building emotional health through your relationships

Through satisfying the goods of the soul, your joy of life can soar like an eagle!
