About Lifespark Weekly

About Us

Lifespark was created to build a community interested in evidence-based strategies and tips on how to find meaning in life and discover new ways to improve yourself.

With so much self-help content online, Lifespark is taking a unique approach by breaking down peer-reviewed scientific research for the purpose of sharing this valuable content with the general community. Thus, part of our mission at Lifespark is to bring 21st century science into the mainstream by making it interesting and relatable to everyday life problems and concerns.

Each week we explore a new topic related to finding the meaning of life. And every day, we publish original articles, quizzes, exercises, and videos that are developed and curated by Dr. Jason M. Holland, an established mental health expert. In addition, we offer exclusive, premium content to members who have registered for a free Lifespark Exclusive membership. To promote further engagement, we also provide answers to your most pressing questions in our advice column.

Through all of these avenues, our ultimate hope is to spark conversations about expressing the purest of all our freedoms – to choose how we’ll respond to our circumstances, to choose to find dignity in suffering, triumph in tragedy, growth through conflict, and unshakable purpose, even in the face of great stress.

So, come with us on this journey and join us every day for conversations about meaning. We’re just getting started here!
