299 Elm Street, Enfield,
News Release for the Week of December
Technology, Entertainment, Design - TED Talks are held on the first and third Thursday of each month at 10:30 am. The group will watch a TED Talk and then have
a discussion. On January 4 “What Makes a
Good Life? Lessons from the Longest Study on Happiness” will be the TED
Talk. What keeps us happy 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 a 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 study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to
build a fulfilling, long life. No
registration required. Just stop in.
