What's the Meaning of Your Life? - PsychCentral.com (blog)

What's the Meaning of Your Life? - PsychCentral.com (blog) | Logotherapy | Scoop.it
In his classic bestseller, “Man’s Search for Meaning,” psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl explains that among the first things that he had to do once he arrived at Auschwitz was to surrender his clothes.
carol k's insight:

Yes, great article! According to Frankl, we can discover this meaning of life in three different ways:

By creating a work or doing a deedBy experiencing something or encountering someone (i.e., marriage or parenthood)By the attitude we take toward unavoidable suffering.
This last is very important, because we can find meaning even in a situation that seems hopeless. Frankl says in Man's Search for Meaning:
 "We must never forget that we may also find meaning in life even when confronted with a hopeless situation, where facing a fate that cannot be changed. For what then matters to bear witness to the uniquely human potential at its best, which is to transform a personal tragedy into a triumph, to turn one’s predicament into a human achievement. When we are no longer able to change a situation — just think of an incurable disease as inoperable cancer — we are challenged to change ourselves."

In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” ~ Viktor Frankl In a review of research into the benefits of mindfulness, the American Psychological Association found that many studies show that practicing mindfulness reduces stress. What are the benefits of mindfulness? Studies show evidence that mindfulness increases positive emotions and decreases negative emotions and anxiety. Farb et al., found that mindfulness shifts a person’s ability to use emotion regulation strategies, enabling them to experience emotion selectively and therefore become more resilient to life’s ups and downs, among many other positive advantages.

Logotherapy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Logotherapy

Logotherapy was developed by neurologist and psychiatrist Viktor Frankl. It is considered the "Third Viennese School of Psychotherapy" after Freud's psychoanalysis and Adler's individual psychology. Logotherapy is based on an existential analysis focusing on Kierkegaard's will to meaning as opposed to Adler's Nietzschean doctrine of will to power or Freud's will to pleasure .
