How to live a meaningful life?

Have you always wondered how to live a more meaningful life?

live-a-meaningful-life-01Well, we have some good news for you. New research is finding that being kind and giving to others we can make our live’s feel more meaningful (Hopper, E., 2016). The Journal of Positive Psychology reported that people who are more altruistic have a greater sense of purpose and meaning in their live’s.


Movember and the RNLI

Here we are going to share a little story of two of the most amazing charities.

live-a-meaningful-life-021. Movember Foundation, the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale year round. It was known that Movember was established by a group of friends over a beer in a pub just outside Melbourne, Australia in 2003. The goal was simple – to create a campaign promoting the growth of the mustache among like-minded people, and to have fun along the way. It is about real men, talking about real issues and changing the face of men’s health, one mustache at a time. Since, Movember has grown rapidly and is now a national phenomenon with 4 million people participating each year, raising over £440m to help over 1,200 men’s health projects focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.

live-a-meaningful-life-032. RNLI, the charity that saves life at sea. On 28 February 1823, Sir William Hillary made an impassioned appeal to the nation, calling for a service dedicated to saving lives at sea. Since the foundation in 1824, RNLI has pioneered developments in lifesaving at sea and RNLI’s lifesavers with unfailing courage and selflessness have saved over 140, 000 lives.


How we can help?

live-a-meaningful-life-04We may not have the skills to help people suffer from prostate and testicular cancer or going out to sea to save lives but we can support the skills of people who can.

It is our mission to help as many people as possible in our community. We are very excited to announce that Bury Chiropractic is raising awareness of Movember and fundraising for the RNLI this November. For every person who comes to our centre, has their photo taken with one of our prop mustaches, Bury Chiropractic will donate a pound to the RNLI.

And that’s not all, we are offering a better than half price discount for every new patient consultation in conjunction with Movember.
