What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it’s fame and money, you’re not alone. According to psychiatrist and researcher Robert Waldinger though, you’d be mistaken.
As the current director of a 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction and in this Talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a long fulfilling life.
Good relationships keep us happier and healthier period.
From this research, Waldinger found that the people who were happy in their relationships were also the healthiest. His advice that we prioritize our relationships may not be advice that everyone will take to heart, but the fact of the matter is, those who do are happier. And you can’t argue facts, can you?
