The 75-Year Study that Found the Secrets to a Fulfilling Life

The 75-Year Study that Found the Secrets to a Fulfilling Life | Bien Etre | Scoop.it

 

What if there was a study dedicated to unearthing the secrets to a happy and purposeful life? It would have to be conducted over the course of many decades, following the lives of real people from childhood until old age, in order to see how they changed and what they learned. And it would probably be too ambitious for anyone to actually undertake.

 

Only, a group of Harvard researchers did undertake it, producing a comprehensive, flesh-and-blood picture of some of life’s fundamental questions: how we grow and change, what we value as time goes on, and what is likely to make us happy and fulfilled.

A study dedicated to unearthing the secrets to a happy and purposeful life.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, August 12, 2013 11:59 AM

Love is all that matters. Work is the unhappiest place and the commute to work is the second unhappiest place in many studies. When we are grounded in solid, loving relationships, it makes all the difference in the world.
