What Makes A Good Life?: Harvard University's Long Run Study Points to Something Vital

In this lovely TED Talk, psychiatrist Robert Waldinger shares the findings from Harvard University's 75-year-old study on adult development about what constitutes a good life. A group of 724 men was selected to participate in this study in 1938 – a group of sophomores at Harvard University and a group of boys from the poorest neighborhoods in Boston – and over the years, they have all been given questions about work, homelife and health .

And as a result of this fine study, these men's answers and lifes are pointing towards something important that you can benefit from today: build healthy and trustworthy relationships to build a good, happy and healthy life.
