What makes us happy?
The above link is to a newsletter from Clayton Behavioral in which they cite a 70 year study at Harvard into what makes us happy. What makes for happiness is how well we deal with adversity and how warm and stable our relationships are. The study has been managed by George Vaillant who writes about the finding, “It is social aptitude, not intellectual brilliance or parental social class, that leads to successful aging.” For Vaillant, the main finding of the Harvard study is that "the only thing that really matters in life are your relationships to other people.”
This is just what the School for Living is all about.
