A Good Life

soulgifts - Telling Tales

Harvard University has conducted a fascinating

longitudinal study over 75 years of men in two very different cohorts –

268 were healthy college sophomores  from the classes of 1939 – 1944

465 were disadvantaged non delinquent inner-city youths from Boston between 1940 – 1945

 The goal of the study was to identify predictors of healthy aging.

The main conclusion is that “warmth of relationships throughout life has the greatest positive impact on ‘life satisfaction'”.

The study shows: “Happiness is love. Full stop.”

  1. Interesting video, but I have to remember to very distinct things: It was Harvard study, which means it leaned left more and more, and the other thing? I have not see the questions asked. Without seeing the questions asked over the 75 years, then for me, the study is inconclusive.

  2. Wow what a conclusion: “The study shows: “Happiness is love. Full stop”
    It’s important to love!

  3. Thank you for sharing this. It brings me to someone new to follow. It was also a message I needed to hear.
