WE HELP YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR LOVED ONES
"Money is not the only thing affecting people’s happiness. Money is not the whole story; it’s not remotely the whole story. It’s important we try to get a better balance between income, and human relationships and mental and physical health. People must understand that they would do well to preserve their human relationships; they should give them a higher priority than how much they earn."
~ Professor Lord Richard Layard, London School of Economics
What does it take to live a happy life? Are there differences between people and what part does career choice, personal finances and family background play? There are academics in the field of social science that have devoted their professional life to these questions.
One such social scientist is Dr. Martin Seligman, professor and author of Learned Optimism (1990), Authentic Happiness (2002) and Flourish (2011). In his 2004 TED talk he shares some of his research, including the surprising finding that the pursuit of pleasure makes almost no contribution to life satisfaction. To better explain happiness, he developed a theoretical model of wellbeing consisting of five elements, which can be remembered by the acronym PERMA.
The science of human flourishing is not new though. Take for example the Harvard Study of Adult Development project which began in 1938 during the Great Depression, tracking the health of 724 men over the course of their life. The project continues today, more than 80 years later. The current director of the study and professor at Harvard Medical School Robert Waldinger remarks:
"The surprising finding is that our relationships and how happy we are in our relationships have a powerful influence on our health. Taking care of your body is important but, tending to your relationships is a form of self-care too. That, I think, is the revelation."
Other academics concur including New York Times bestselling author and Wharton School professor Adam Grant who was asked on his Wondering Blog, "What did all the great thinkers of our time believe was the meaning of life?"
His answer: Connection and Contribution.
You will not be surprised to learn that positive, supportive relationships is a common theme in the research findings of all three academics. Being closely connected to others has proven to be an essential ingredient to personal wellbeing.
