• What makes a good life? Lessons from the longest study on happiness | Robert Waldinger

    What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it's fame and money, you're not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you're mistaken. As the director of 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a fulfilling, long life.

Those familiar with the science will not be surprised by the findings of the two new Harvard studies. Remember the NIH-AARP study I profiled in Meat & Mortality (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/meat-mortality/) ? Half a million people studied—the largest forward-looking study on diet and health in history—and they found the exact the same thing. If the science is so strong why isn't it reflected in our dietary guidelines? See Dietary Guidelines: Science vs. Corporate Interests (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/dietary-guidelines-science-versus-corporate-interests/). Nor should it surprise that nuts are so healthy. See Halving Heart Attack Risk (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/halving-heart-attack-risk/) and Is Peanut Butter Good for You? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-peanut-butter-good-for-you/) And speaking of nuts, have you seen the NutritionFacts.org tag cloud? (http://nutritionfacts.org/) I have videos on more than a thousand nutrition subjects (http://nutritionfacts.org/topics/).

She's taking a graduate research class to start her master's degree at Harvard University. "I would probably be in 8th grade but I'm currently doing master's level work at Harvard University," de Silva said. She graduated high school three years ago. In a couple weeks she'll be walking at her college graduation ceremony from American Military University. "I'm very excited!" she said showing off her cap and gown. After that she and her dad are moving to Boston for a while to start her master's in legal studies at Harvard with classmates in their 20s and 30s. "It was always my dream to go to Harvard. When I walked on campus, it was magnificent for me," she said. Eugenie has never made below an "A" grade and she's also published a book with her dad. All of the hours of studying and conducting research have a specific purpose. "I want to be an intelligence agent for the U.S. government and then the Secretary of Defense, but that comes later," de Silva said. She also wants to add criminal defense attorney to her resume. Her goal was inspired and encouraged by her dad, a professor of physics and chemistry at Walters State Community College and founder of the Virginia Institute of Research. "Before she could write she could type," said Eugenie's dad, Dr. Eugene de Silva. "I recognized her talent at an early age and began teaching her subjects." But the single dad stresses that hobbies and a life outside of studying are important. The duo goes to the movies every weekend. Eugenie plays soccer and the piano, which she taught herself to play. "She likes to play pranks," Dr. de Silva said, laughing. Still, she's very serious about her studies. She plans to get a second master's, a doctorate and a law degree before she's finished with school.
