What makes a good life? "Is Hypnosis Fake?" Hypnotist stuns 4 months ago   12:47

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.

this talk is interesting ,but how to build good relationships?and I think this speaker doesn't confront the problems in reality: many people are too bad to deserve love .well you can say even a terrible person deserves love ,but you know it's not true ,you cannot deceive yourself .so I think one has to continuously learn and grow to deserve love .second ,force people to like people they don't like is not effective for building good relationships ...since for some people the conflicts and difference between them are so unresolvable .so I think a better strategy is to meet and deeply know as much people as you can .Finally You can chose good friends and true lover from a sample large enough .
I't said 1400 years ago:
Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever is pleased to have his provision expanded and his life span extended, then he should keep good relations with his family.”

You mean the study included only males? :(
Really good key points. He spoke of the raw truth of life. We all need good quality relationships with other people. Great TED talk.

*True Happiness* So who is defining this. I know a guy named Adolph who's idea of true happiness may differ from yours.

6:33 on this note prophet muhummed told us Muslims that, keeping good ties of kinship is a means of attaining long life

عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَنْ سَرَّهُ أَنْ يُبْسَطَ لَهُ فِي رِزْقِهِ أَوْ يُنْسَأَ لَهُ فِي أَثَرِهِ فَلْيَصِلْ رَحِمَهُ
1961 صحيح البخاري كتاب البيوع باب من أحب البسط في الرزق
2557 صحيح مسلم كتاب البر والصلة والآداب باب صلة الرحم وتحريم قطيعتها

nas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever is pleased to have his provision expanded and his life span extended, then he should keep good ties of kinship.”

always ppl talk like we all have a happy familiy background, some of us just dont
like he said dont invest in toxic realtionships even if you feel obliged bc they are family
It's great to have such a lengthy study on men, but data from a mere 10 years for women can hardly be comparable
Maggie Brooks
Am I the only one who is annoyed that it was only studied on men?

If Americans could have less stress, less work hours and generally better quality of life, we can focus more on relationships.
Our politicians have us working so hard in order to pay the taxes so we can police the world and send aid to everyone else we don't have the time to relax.
(Watch video in English)

Hvad giver det lykkelige liv? Det har et hold forskere undersøgt igennem folks hele liv i 75 år (verdens længste undersøgelse) og undersøgelsen pågår stadigvæk.

Det er ej rigdom og berømmelse der gør os mest lykkelige, men menneskelige relationer.

Jo bedre og flere relationer vi har, jo mindre føles fysisk smerte, hukommelsestab bliver mindre som ældre og vi lever i så fald længere (end folk som har færre og dårligere relationer der dør yngre: læs; ensomhed dræber).

CITAT på baggrund af ovenstående:

》'Der er ikke tid, så kort er livet,
Til skænderier, undskyldninger, og hjertesorg at bære.

Der er kun tid til kærlighed,
Og endda til det, kun et øjeblik.'《

(Citat fra video med undertekster på dansk)

I've experienced loneliness a lot in my life and I've tried to tell like my ex how important it is to not be alone or lonely all the time this just proves it but it also tells me I'm 45 and I'm going to be dying quite Young and yeah it's painful to be lonely.

"Is Hypnosis Fake?" Hypnotist stuns What makes a good life? 4 months ago   25:23

Most people think hypnosis is some kind of trick.
Religion calls it sinful. Science has questioned its very existence.
Hypnotist, Laughologist and acclaimed Filmmaker Albert Nerenberg, (Laughology, You Are What You Act) asks: What happens if you run a series of standard hypnotic inductions on a large crowd such as the audience at TEDXQueens.
Is hypnosis fake? Let’s find out. The results are stunning.
This comical presentation may finally provide a street science explanation for how hypnosis actually works.
