What Is The Secret To a Long Life?

The latest insights with a dose of wisdom...

By James Mills, Associate Partner & Mentorship Coach, Lighthouse International

Interested in living a long, happy and healthy life? This is something that psychologist Susan Pinker went out to discover; travelling to the Italian island of Sardinia as part of her research...Why? Because Sardinia is where more people live past 100 years than pretty much everywhere else in the world!

What Ms Pinker discovered was that the secret to a long life is not how much we weigh, the amount of exercise we do or indeed how positive we try to be. It was something very different...

The biggest predictor of how long we live is actually down to the quality of our relationships and interactions with other people; both with our loved ones and the people we communicate with through the day. So, when it comes to our physical, mental and emotional health, there is no substitute for genuine human connection!

Here's a short 2-minute video with highlights of Susan Pinker's TED Talk.
