Are you living a full life? And if so, what does that actually mean? Well, that’s exactly what a new survey of two million people sought to find out, and it seems family is a big part of it.
Family was the key to living a full life for more than 32% of those polled, followed by success (12%), giving (8%) and health (7%). Meanwhile, for 23% of people, attitude was given as the reason people believe others are living full lives, followed by money (16%), health (11%) and family (10%).
So, what’s stopping people from leading a full life? Well, money seems to be the biggest obstacle, chosen by 44% of the people, with time (33%), work (20%) and priorities (17%) also to blame.
As for the countries with the most fulfilled people, on a scale of one to 100, China came out on top with a score of 79.2, followed by Costa Rica (77.9), Colombia (76.2), Mexico (74.8) and Indonesia (74.3). I’m not sure where Canada landed on this one – but we’ve got to be doing pretty good right?
What do you think it means to live a full life? What is the most important aspect of living a full life? For me, time and money are definitely HUGE factors. It’s hard for family to land at the top if you lack the time to give it the attention it deserves. Same with health and success. Is it even possible to have a full life these days?
