What makes a good life?

This unique 75-year long Harvard research followed more than 700 men from teenager to old age, with one simple goal; to understand what makes them happy and healthy.The short answer is: good relationships keep us happier and healthier. Three lessons can be drawn:
1) social connections ensure a longer life, healthier life.
2) it’s not the number, but the quality of close relationships that matter
3) good relationships protect our brain; memories stay sharper

So why do we keep pursuing fame and wealth? Because we are lazy and like quick fixes. We rather work longer hours to get closer to the first million than reach out to an old friend. Relationships are messy and need working. But, as the video shows, are the real deal.
