On this episode of On Purpose, I sat down with Robert Waldinger. Robert is a Harvard psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, and Zen priest. He’s the director of the longest study on adult life and happiness.

Robert reminds us that having a person you can call in the middle of the night when you are scared or sick is what keeps us happier and healthier. He shares that it takes vulnerability to have meaningful relationships, but the rewards are always worth the risk of rejection.

TEDxBloomington - Shawn Achor - The Happiness Advantage: Linking Positive Brains to Performance

Shawn Achor is the winner of over a dozen distinguished teaching awards at Harvard University, where he delivered lectures on positive psychology in the most popular class at Harvard.

His research and lectures on happiness and human potential have received attention in The New York Times, Boston Globe, The Wall Street Journal, as well as on NPR and CNN Radio, and he travels around the United States and Europe giving talks on positive psychology to Fortune 500 corporations, schools, and non-profit organizations.

Achor graduated magna cum laude from Harvard with a BA in English and Religion and earned a Masters degree from Harvard Divinity School in Christian and Buddhist ethics.

Now he is the CEO of Aspirant, a Cambridge-based consulting firm which researches positive outliers-people who are well above average-to understand where human potential, success and happiness intersect. Based on his research and 12 years of experience at Harvard, he clearly and humorously describes to organizations how to increase happiness and meaning, raise success rates and profitability, and create positive transformations that ripple into more successful cultures.

In Shawn's TEDxBloomington presentation, he says that most modern research focuses on the average, but that if we focus on the average, we will remain merely average. He wants to study the positive outliers, and learn how not only to bring people up to the average, but to move the entire average up.



About TEDx In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxBloomington, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxBloomington event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

What makes us happy and healthy?

If you were going to invest now in your future self, what would you focus on? One of the world's longest running health studies sought to find the answer. The Harvard study of adult development began in 1938. It followed two groups of young men, some from inner city Boston and others who studied at Harvard. Their lives gave researchers evidence that our relationships with others keep us happy and healthy. Dr. Robert Waldinger, the fourth director of the study, joins CBS This Morning to discuss the findings.

Advancing Wellbeing Seminar Series: Robert Waldinger

The Harvard Study of Adult Development: What We Learn From Tracking Lives Over 80 Years

The Harvard Study of Adult Development is the longest in-depth study of adult life ever done. Beginning in 1938 with cohorts of Harvard undergraduates and inner-city Boston boys, the Study has tracked the health and wellbeing of the same group of men for eight decades. We are now studying their baby-boomer children, and we plan to study their grandchildren and great-grandchildren with particular attention to the ways that social media use and technological change are shaping wellbeing and social functioning. We will talk about the particular strengths of longitudinal research, along with the complexities of balancing continuity with innovation in research methods.

A 75 year old Harvard study revealed the most important factor in human happiness

Have you ever heard of the Harvard study that ran for 75 years to assess what makes us happy? It’s a revolutionary study in psychology.

It followed the lives of two groups of men for over 75 years, and it now follows their Baby Boomer children to understand how childhood experience reaches across decades to affect health and wellbeing in middle age.

So what keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it’s fame and money, you’re not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you’re mistaken. As the director of a 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction and he lays it all bare in the Ted talk below.

So what is the number one factor in your happiness and wellbeing? According to Waldinger:

“The clearest message that we get from this 75-year study is this: Good relationships keep us happier and healthier.”

Yep, the biggest predictor of your happiness and fulfilment overall in life is, basically, love.

LYRICS

Pop rocks and cherry cola, it gets colder when you're gone
We're all getting drunk now, Jamie flunked out pants undone
Internet scams and waistcoats, we're just scapegoats all to dumb
Body paint in day glo, where do trends go when you're numb?

When everybody wants to be somebody, they all care
Everybody wants to know themselves but we're too scared
We're still figuring out

Made for mass production, is it art when you want more
Was I made to function, or create, or just get bored?
High school conversations, graduation, what’s in store?
5 year plans/invasions, wasn't your invitation burned?

Everybody wants to be somebody, they all care
Everybody wants to know themselves but we're too scared
We're still figuring out

On manic Monday we lose the ground beneath us
Teargas Tuesday I think I found Jesus
Wake and bake on Wednesday with a rosary and incense
Thirsty Thursday I'll drink away my demons
Friday, Saturday, lose ourselves on Sunday because
