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

The 75-Year Study that Found the Secrets to a Fulfilling Life | Personal Development | 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.

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.

Thanks Ivon. Love and relationships matter most.

Night Noise: What a Sleeping Brain Hears

Night Noise: What a Sleeping Brain Hears | Personal Development | Scoop.it

Earlier this year, a Kickstarter campaign for a documentary film called “In Pursuit of Silence” raised $35,371, exceeding its goal in just a few weeks. On a crowdfunding platform where a new film proposal can pull in nearly 100 times that amount—for Zach Braff’s follow-up to “Garden State,” precisely $3,105,473—the financing feat was modest. Still, hundreds of contributors shelled out cash, remarkably, for nothing but onscreen peace and quiet. By “exploring the value of silence, our relationship with sound, and the implications of living in a noisy world,” promised Patrick Shen, the documentary’s director, viewers could indulge in 80 minutes of quiescence. And, for over 35 million Americans suffering from hearing loss, toiling in urban cacophonies roughly 1 decibel louder every year, perhaps that was worth the price of admission.
