Family Relationships & Personal Growth

Happiness studies show that the aspects of life that give meaning and satisfaction can be summarized by four factors:

  • strong, trusting relationship with one or more people
  • healthy body and mind
  • enough money to live comfortably without constant financial concerns
  • knowing oneself and how to nurture and care for oneself

The Extension resources in this section have been developed to help individuals reflect on one or more these factors.
