Challenge Yourself to Find Themes

How can you find deeper meaning in life?

Strengthen your brain connections by looking for deeper meaning in your experiences. Ask yourself what themes, or bigger ideas, connect to your activities and observations.

SCIENCE SAYS:

Challenging yourself to think in themes helps move you beyond surface-level thinking while strengthening connections between different areas of the brain. Seeing a bigger picture helps you build cognitive strength, resilience and a sense of purpose.

BEGIN BY:

  • Describing your day in three unique words
  • Generating five or more themes from the next movie you watch
  • Reflecting on or journaling about significant moments in your life
  • Sharing memories with friends and family as you observe patterns in your experiences
