TED Talk: Links between Happiness and Relationships

How many of us truly understand the links between long-term happiness and real intimacy in relationships?  Many people believe that money and fame are the pillars of a happy life.  Money and fame, however, provides no guarantee of happiness, as explained by psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, the director of a 75-year-old study on adult development.   Enjoy his TED Talk, and note the value of relationships.

“It is not the quantity of relationships we have, but the QUALITY of those relationships that creates genuine happiness in life.”

As summarized on the TED Talks Channel, “…Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a fulfilling, long life.” Watch the video and browse TED.com for additional talks and information about the speaker.
