Work is more than a paycheck.

Anecdotal evidence tells me that people fortunate enough to have jobs are working more than usual this holiday season. Without travel, why not hunker down and get things done?

It also points to the meaning that our work can provide us. Beyond the paycheck, it can offer a sense of belonging, purpose, and community.

May we all find that deeper meaning in our work environments (or a community outside of an actual job from a hobby or volunteer work), or seek it elsewhere. Meaning and connection with others have been shown to be two of the biggest predicters to happiness and longevity and I hope you have it or find it.
