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

Good luck with your presentation. It sounds like a very interesting topic. Sometimes we spend too much time focusing on the wrong things
Exactly!! Thank you. It was okay, I just forgot main points😂.
It happens. Was it being assessed?
Haha. It was normal class presentation but when a lot of people look at my face, I start losing confidence😂
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 😬
Thank you for advice. I always look at my teacher’s face 😂. Seems like you’re teacher🤠
I guess I am … marking right now, so might have a disappointed 😞 😕
Haha😂. No problem.No disappointment.
Best wishes in your presentation.
