The Good Life: The Research showing that Wellbeing can be Built


“It’s not just the number of friends you have, and it’s not whether or not you’re in a committed relationship. It’s the quality of your close relationships that matters.”
– Robert Waldinger

In the 1930s, Harvard University began the longest study on human happiness. They invited 19-year-old sophomores from Harvard as well as teenagers from the poorest neighborhoods of Boston to participate. For over 75 years, they did interviews, medical tests, and checked up on their subjects every two years to see how they were doing. And what they found about happiness surprised them. Meet Robert, who is the fourth director of this study and the man behind the popular talk “What makes a good life?”, which has garnered more than 20 million views on TED talk.
