What makes us happy? Robert Waldinger, a Harvard psychiatrist, did one of the most interesting studies on human development. Dr. Waldinger recently gave a TedTalk on the subject. “People who are more isolated from others than they want to be find that they are less happy, their health declines earlier in midlife, their brain functioning declines sooner, and they live shorter lives than people who are not lonely,” Waldinger said in his TedTalk. “Good, close relationships seem to buffer us from some of the slings and arrows of getting old.”

This study challenges what humans have long thrived to gain through money, career achievements and fame. It also challenges the false truth we try to build in our minds of self-centered ego. Rather, it claims self contentment should emerge from one’s ability to bond with family, friends, and society.

For those who are thinking about restoring their happiness, spring is a great time to work on your relationships.

Spring-fully,
