For my final post detailing some of the most valuable information I learned from the Harvard Medical School Mind Body Conference in October, I want to again focus on the critical importance of positive social connections. Here are the 4 take-home messages from Robert Waldinger, M.D.’s presentation entitled – What Really Matters in Living a Fulfilled Life?: Lessons from Studying Lives Over 80 Years.
1. Human connection pays huge dividends
2. Knowing when to turn off your screens enriches your life
3. We can engineer our lives to combat isolation
4. Pursuing meaning and connection – not happiness – is what makes us happier
Wishing you success in all aspects of life,
