Harvard Study: Happiness = Positive Relationships

Check out this Atlantic article about Harvard professor George Vaillant re-visiting the research from his study of human thriving, which happens to be the longest longitudinal study on the topic.  Vaillant’s study concludes that happiness comes from experiencing love in relationships over the course of one’s life.  To learn more, I encourage you to read the fascinating article entitled “What Makes Us Happy?” written by my friend Joshua Wolf Shenk (it was the Atlantic’s cover story in June 2009).
