What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it's fame and money, you're not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you're mistaken. As the director of 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. 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 fulfilling, long life.

I personally believe that the biggest key in life is finding your passion. It seems that if you can live daily being happy about what you do, there is no such thing as the "Mondays".
If you can live passionately, everything else will fall into place most likely. Financially, but more rewarding, to put yourself in position to help others in need, family, and aquantances.
Surround yourself with people that inspire you and are humble. Also, never settle.
I am lonely and I don't find myself too much tensed and worried, I am quite fine with this condition. I don't want to have a close friendship with people anymore because whenever I try to do this I have always ended up felling cheated or taken for granted. Done with all the people around, I just want to live my life on my own way.
One thing I have learned from visiting elderly people in nursing homes - the loneliest ones told stories of broken relationships they refused to mend because - the other person was in the wrong. They were right. Lonely people are right but is it worth it. Glad I saw this. I’ve decided to Listen more- understand more - forgive more and let it go. Forge ahead connecting to my family and friends. Build people up because this world often tears people down. We see so many negative things these days. Let’s counter it with positivity
*"The words contained in The Manifesting Manual are the most powerful and profound ones you will ever read[ Check Details Here==**do7.info/vkrw** ]. The understanding of the human psyche is beautifully captured throughout, enabling one to fully explore and understand one's own personal mindset.*
I saw this about a year or so ago and loved it! More than anything, it reminded me that investing in friends and family pays amazing dividends.
"...good relationships keep us happier and healthier, period." - Robert Waldinger
Life without God the creator of this universe is darkness. Not any kind of God except Allah the one and only God of Abraham. 44.000 Americans take their lives each year and about 40.000 others die of Drug overdose. So $ isn’t the only way out.
It is very important to know the meaning of loneliness.
YOU can be still be lonely even if you live in cities or surround by many friends... and YOU can still be alone and not lonely somewhere in countryside or rural areas. It's how individual thinks towards life and others around. So the best method is to give less important to "I" and stress more on "WE" the bigger the WE is happier u will be. (We- I don't mean xenophobic or nationalism, instead positive "WE" which covers all beings)
Wonderful studies with authentic data. This is what His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama always insisted that we 7 billion humen beings are same; physically, mentally, and emotionally and being a social animal all should think about eachother and help eachother leaving extreme self centeredness away.
I’m social, talk to everyone I possibly can when Im out running errands, at the gym and even on the Internet. I love meeting and interacting with new people....But I never take it to the next step to meet up/ hang out, decline invitation when asked and love a good one night stand. A personal deep relationship is not my thing. At the end of the day I enjoy being alone, what about those people?
I wake up everyday with a smile on my face. Could I be happier? Maybe I can be but I’m too happy to complain. I’m not saying this in inaccurate but people are so different in so many ways. You’re basing this off of around 700 people, in America (arguably the greatest country on earth) out of how many BILLION people of all races and walks of life? So again what about those people who aren’t anti-social and you’d never guess they enjoy being alone but they just do? I’m sure there are thousands of happy people who fit into what I described.
Jesus said, I love you just like my Father loves me,,,then He continue His message,,you have to love one and another,,,,
If research from Harvard said good relationship make you happier and healthier,,,can you imagine what a happiness you get,if you have good relationship with God,,,its undescribable great,,,think seriously about this,,,,
True! Lots of Money and Fame… my level of long term happiness did not change after getting it. There is a short period of happiness, a honeymoon period, that lasted for a N.Y. minute. After that it went back to the same. Breathing properly and cold showers keep my joy levels up also ATX ITAC.

Body, Brain, Mind, Mood, Spirit, Soul, Consciousness ...Where is happiness working on ? And what is the happiness work for ? If we know nothing about it, Happiness is worthless for the destined everlasting death...
A Harvard study following 724 men to figure out how men are happy throughout their lives..... what about women ? Doesn’t their happiness matter? Why not include women in this study ?
It took 50 more years to ask the wives to join the study....
Good relationships, be socially connected to family friends and community, loneliness kills.
You can be lonely in a crowd and you can be lonely in a marriage.
Live in the midst of good, warm relationships.
Be satisfied in your relationships - translates into good health and happiness in your 80s.
Emotional pain magnifies physical pain.
it took me years to realize that I desired everything money could not buy..and when I followed that desire..money and prosperity followed,,not because that's life..because that's how human nature is..I'm fortunate to have it all..I'm not wealthy..but have enough money to live my dreams with a dream man,,,
Dr Waldinger failed to mention how many enjoyed good and healthy relationships and how many didn't? Confucius once asked his student to borrow food from a "well-stocked-up" beggar. The beggar agreed on condition the student answered this question correctly, "What's many and what's fewer? What's happy and what's troubling?" "Stars are many, moons are few. ...." Wrong. Student went off empty-handed and his master Confucius told him to return with this reply: "Small men are many, gentlemen fewer. Happy when borrowed, troubling when due."
What does one do in an acrimonious or toxic relationship/friendship? Dr Waldinger hinted that divorce may be the better option. Grudges developed not by accident but mostly as a result of losses, suffering and pain. You may put aside those grudges and continue or resume the relationship/friendship but the same losses (financial or otherwise), suffering and pain would most likely recur. As the saying goes, "Once bitten, twice shy." For some, I am sure I'm not the only one, twice or more bitten is more often than not the case.
Michel Montaigne found a "once in a few millenials" friend in La Boestie. Amor Towles wrote "A Gentleman in Moscow" based partly on this friendship. Relationships and friendships are to be treasured only because they aren't common.
10:12-10:38 The reason this study though arguably 'common knowledge' is fundamentally important to all people. We weren't made to fight and war with each other but to create healthy long lasting relationships with each other that a mutually beneficial. Unity is our greatest strength especially when interdependence takes into account individual and community.
I've got to get out of here. This video makes me sick, because it's totally false. Just one person's biased opinion. This is not what really happens in the real world. Where do you find these wonderful people? Not here. Not there. They're all a bunch of conning liars trying to convince you otherwise.
The quality of relationship in early age are determinants of quality of life in latter stages of life. One of the reasons could be to bring into your subconsious all good and postitivity so that when you finished your active life such attitude guid you through rest of life and your previous behaviour in terms of good relationships payback in the shap of good attitude and behaviour. All materials stands zero, standing out good and quality relations as exponetial
I don’t have friends , I have three kids and a husband and if you asked me what makes my life so wonderful I would say my kids. I hope this time in my life when they are small goes slowly because they are so cute adorable
Surbrina,, enjoy them while they are little and cute. Because when they become teenagers,, they can be a pain in the butt. Your responsibility for them never ends and you never stop worring about them, no matter how old they get. Most women don't have girls friends once they get married. Because they worry about some other woman coming along and stealing their husband. Most women don't trust other women for this reason.
Your pets, especially dogs, can lead you into quality relationships with other pet lovers. People who love animals are also very capable of easily getting to know other people. I met more great people walking my Golden' Retrievers then I did anywhere else.
*1.Good relationship with your God because He is the one who gave you happiness and healthy life and anything that the best for you without we know. Be grateful what you have before you lost it.* From me who feel like living this world for 15639284 yrs. Thankyou.
Money can buy happiness. See
If you have money you can have great relationships(you can make someone feel special with money) (becoz the fact is in this world seldomly ppl make poor friends)
Good relationships--> happy mind--> happy ending.
I don't like the idea of money itself though.
Shut up. Enough of your great thesis. You could not prevent the holocaust, now this. When the world blamed the Jews again and again, did you have the sense to see that the Mughals and the British were slaughtering and snatching from Indians at that very moment? What a nerve, they even traded with us saying if we fought the war on their side they would grant us freedom! And we did! WHO IS GOING TO ANSWER THESE BLOODY QUESTIONS? There will be no peace till all these questions are addressed. THE DEAD ARE GONE. SO HAS YOUR EQUATION.IMBALANCE ...

He didn't mention God but I'd say being in close relationship with God is an absolute must and benefits our health and well being too. This is why being part of a good genuine heart warming Bible believing and living Christian community, also known as church, is also very good for everyone involved.

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
