TED Talk: The Science Behind Health And Happiness

Maybe I’m a loon, but I truly believe in God and the universe; and that they send us reminders or answers when we need them the most. My belief is that we just have to be open and aware enough to notice them.

In this fascinating TED Talk, Robert Waldinger reveals information from the longest running study on life and happiness. The study began in 1938, and amazingly enough, it is being continued from the original subjects, on to their offspring.

I am utterly in awe that a study could not only survive for 75 years, but that it is still being nurtured and conducted, today.

The key takeaway, for me:

“The lessons aren’t about wealth or fame, or working harder and harder. The clearest message that we get from this 75-year study is this: good relationships keep us happier and healthier, period.”
