Weekend Ed. Quote ~ November 10

“Loneliness kills. It’s as powerful as smoking or alcoholism,” Robert Waldinger, Director on the Harvard Study of Adult Development, one of the world’s longest studies of adult life. “It’s not just the number of friends you have, and it’s not whether or not you’re in a committed relationship,” says Waldinger, “It’s the quality of your close relationships that matters.”

 

How does this insight from the longest studies of adult life impact your educational decisions?

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ November 4, 2017

“Good relationships don’t just protect our bodies; they protect our brains…And those good relationships, they don’t have to be smooth all the time. Some of our octogenarian couples could bicker with each other day in and day out, but as long as they felt that they could really count on the other when the going got tough, those arguments didn’t take a toll on their memories,” Robert Waldinger, Director on the Harvard Study of Adult Development, one of the world’s longest studies of adult life.
