What makes a good life?

Robert Waldinger is the fourth director of the study. In his TED talk, “What makes a good life? Lessons from the longest study on happiness,” Waldinger says that while many young people tend to think that fame, fortune, and hard work will bring them happiness, it’s actually our social connections that are most important for our well being.

Three Lessons on Well-Being and Happiness

In this popular talk, which has garnered more than 20 million views, Waldinger explains the three lessons the researchers learned. First, having social connections is better for our health and well being—and conversely, loneliness kills. Second, having higher-quality close connections is more important for our well-being than the number of connections. Third, having good relationships is not only good for our bodies but also for our brains.

This is the topic I’ve choose for presentation in my class, I thought I should share them with you all.

I am looking forward for your response

      1. The usual advice is to look just above their heads,or focus on one, friendly face for encouragement. I know many students hate doing presentations and we keep forcing you to do them 😬
