Stumbled upon a very interesting TED Talk, which left me fascinated and intrigued.
Here is that fascinating 75 years of study on adult- development is an ongoing research at the Harvard University, led currently by Robert Waldinger, the 4th director of this research.
His TedX talk on “What makes a good life? Lessons from the longest study on Happiness”, will throw light on the essentials.
Based on this study, he says the prevalent reason for happiness are strong relationships and good health.
By strong relationships, he means,
- Those we surround ourselves with
- Acceptance in society.
Relationships are easy if there is intent, time, emotional investment and patience.
One way to develop patience, is by drawing a Kolam.
