As you've probably gathered by now, JOOL wasn't created in a vacuum. JOOL is part of a sea change in how psychologists, physicians, organizations, and individuals are coming to understand what "health" truly is. Beyond the limited focus of dealing with illness and disease once they occur, this new approach is about committing to living the healthiest life possible -- across all aspects of your life -- each day, every day. This new focus on what can we do right now to enrich and optimize our overall well-being is what drives JOOL.
To help support your experience in improving the quality and richness of your life, we've assembled a range of resources for you to explore, however, and whenever you like.
The Science Behind JOOL
Life Purpose Workbook
A growing body of evidence shows that the science behind JOOL has a positive impact on both our bodies and minds.
This booklet references scientific articles used in support of the
development of JOOL. We’ve provided summaries of the studies along with links to abstracts. After all, knowledge is better when it’s shared.
To help you get closer to your life purpose, we're providing you with this downloadable Life Purpose Workbook.
This workbook is an in-depth, action-oriented dive into how to write a life purpose that can inspire and motivate you to live a life grounded in what’s most important and meaningful for you.
