The world can seem truly muddled up - its people confused and frightened out of their wits. There's little we have control over, except for steering our own lives. You can - and deserve - to define a life's purpose to guide your steps, no matter what's going on around you. At the very least, nothing can stop the definition of it for you - and it can't hurt to think about it.

Regardless of your age, feeling a sense of purpose for being alive - a life's purpose or calling - can help you live longer, according to research published in Psychological Science.

And the good news is...it doesn't matter when you find it.
