Welcome To Make The Most Of It!

What is this blog all about?

Simply put, one thing we all have in common is a limited amount of time on the planet. How will we use it? How should we go about making the most out of our lives?

In my work as a therapist for the last 15 years, I have realized that so much of our dreams, conflicts, desires, relationships and emotional experience is in some way connected to these questions. I have been reflecting more on this question in my own life as well as working with clients in my practice and organizations invested in employee wellness as they explore issues connected with these ideas. I’d like you to join me as we blog our way along to wellness and meaningful living!

This blog is a series of thoughts on this question and others related to well-being and meaningful-life-making. My aim is to go beyond a “bucket list” or scorecard mentality in this exploration. Getting the most out of life has little to do with “doing everything”, and far less to do with consumerism than we have been persuaded by advertising companies. Rather than providing simplistic answers to this important question, I want to introduce you to useful psychological concepts and practical strategies for your consideration. The goal of all this? To start creating greater meaning in day to day living right away, with a vision to make the most of our life experiences!

I welcome your comments and if you enjoy the blog, please recommend or link to others to grow our virtual community!
