Abstract

This article presents an understanding of the principal aspects of life that provide meaning in life for six baby boomers and how they might foresee that meaning change as they age. The qualitative aspect of the research undertaken is addressed. This article presents the rationale, aims, and importance of the study. The relationship between spirituality and meaning in life is explored and meaning in life from the baby boomers' perspective as revealed in literature is considered. Semi-structured interviews were used to collect the data. The study revealed that experiencing age-related negative changes could affect the meaning placed in life and therefore had the potential to affect overall well-being into later life.
