For over eight decades, Robert Waldinger, MD, directed the Harvard Study of Adult Development, taking hundreds of measurements—from brain scans to blood work—with the goal of discovering the secrets to a good life. In this episode, we explore common myths, including the age-old adage “money can’t buy happiness.” Learn what the three main categories of happiness are, the importance of good health and relationships, and practical ways to lead a happier and more fulfilling life.
