We’ve all heard that living with your purpose top of mind – what we at Crucible Leadership call a life of significance – leads to a more joyful and impactful life. But did you know it also can lead to a longer life? Author Marta Zaraska makes an eye-opening case for that truth in her best-seller, Growing Young: How Friendship, Optimism and Kindness Can Help You Live to 100 – a book steeped in science (she studied more than 600 research papers in her research) that points to the health benefits of living life in community and in service to others.  That means those steps you're taking to overcome your crucibles -- deepening authentic relationships, growing in character and kindness, leaning into the power of meditation and prayer -- can lower your mortality rate more effectively than a fad diet or obsessing over whether you're getting your 10,000 steps in every day.
