There are many ways to categorize and divide up the various areas and activities of life. Here is a six-fold scheme I'm exploring:
In this scheme, life consists of striving for vitality, love, achievement, beauty, wisdom, character. I understand all of these as stable states or ongoing activities, i.e., as ends in themselves. In turn, these goals are fulfilled through projects, relationships, and experiences. The hardest part, as always, is implementation: translating your goals into actionable plans and sustainable practices. Philosophy as a way of life is, then, a matter of making sense of life and guiding your plans and practices by that understanding. (Note: many people make a mess of at least one area of life!)
This is the merest sketch, and will need to be refined and revised based on evidence from psychology, philosophy, happiness studies, etc.
