The Longest-Running Study On Happiness

  • The clearest message from this 75-year study is this: Good relationships keep us happier and healthier.
  • The people who fared the best were the people who leaned in to relationships, with family, with friends, with community.

Three Big Lessons About Relationships

  • Social connections are good for us, and loneliness is toxic. The people that are more socially connected to family, to friends, to the community, are happier, they're physically healthier, and they live longer than people who are less well connected.
  • It's not just the number of friends you have, and it's not whether or not you're in a committed relationship, but it's the quality of your close relationships that matters.
  • Good relationships don't just protect our bodies, they protect our brains. The people who are in relationships where they feel they can count on the other person in times of need, those people’s memories stay sharper and longer.
