Quality of Life
Posted October 25, 2013on:
We tend to equate the quality of our lives with two things: our economic standard of living and our physical health. While these are important and give us stability, we all have an inner drive for a greater sense of fulfillment.
Your quality of life is based on your own individual satisfaction, or dissatisfaction, within the societal conditions that you live.
In America, we have a fairly high economic standard of living. Yet in spite of the material abundance in this country, about half or more of all Americans are not happy. Why?
They blame a sluggish economy, an incompetent government, corporate greed, and an entire list of other factors. The world has a lot of problems, it has had problems for thousands of years, and it will continue to have problems after we each leave this mortal plane.
While there is a limit to what you can do about the societal conditions you live in, there are an abundance of ways you can increase your own personal sense of satisfaction. Your quality of life is your task.
