From the New York Times Bestseller List--The Good Life: Lessons from the World's Longest Scientific  Study of Happiness by Robert Waldinger & Marc Schulz

What makes a life fulfilling and meaningful? The simple but surprising answer is: relationships. The stronger our relationships, the more likely we are to live happy, satisfying, and healthier lives.

The invaluable insights in this book emerge from the revealing personal stories of hundreds of participants in the Harvard Study as they were followed year after year for their entire adult lives.  Relationships in all their forms—friendships, romantic partnerships, families, coworkers, tennis partners, book club members, Bible study groups—all contribute to a happier, healthier life. And as The Good Life shows us, it’s never too late to strengthen the relationships you already have, and never too late to build new ones.

The Good Life  published by Simon & Schuster (2023) provides examples of how to do this.

Available from your local bookstores (support small, independently owned business 😊) or through the usual online sources. Don’t forget to check with your neighborhood library as well.

Dr. Waldinger's TED Talk about the Harvard Study, "What Makes a Good Life," has been viewed more than 42 million times and is one of the ten most-watched TED talks ever.
