This prestigious  University spent a long time studying this, since the 1930s to be exact.  And after all that time, money and energy this is how it breaks down.  The simple secret to happiness has been revealed in a Harvard study.

Some call this a groundbreaking study. Researchers have discovered the secret to happiness and it is not what you might be expecting.  The secret to happiness is not a billion dollars, or nationally recognized intelligence or beauty.  According to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, the secret to happiness is good relationships.  He says good relationships are the key to living a happy and healthy life.

According to our source, CNBC, the 85 year old study followed two groups of people.  They studied male Harvard students and young boys from disadvantaged back grounds.  Through brain scans and health exams here is what they discovered.

Harvard found that people who are more socially involved are physically healthier, happier and may even live longer.  Its the quality of your relationships over the quantity.  The study also found that people who are isolated are less healthy, they don’t live as long and have declining health.  To learn more get details from CNBC right here.

7 Must Do Activities In North Carolina This Fall

Have you created your fall bucket list yet? This weekend is Labor Day and the unofficial kick-off to fall. The kids are back in school, football is back, and pumpkin spice lattes are in Starbucks. Now the weather just needs to catch up. But soon we will be in sweaters, with leaves falling around us, surrounded by pumpkins and the smell of fresh cider. Which means it’s time to plan for the best season of the year. So I’m here with some must-do activities in North Carolina this fall.

So get your boots on, it’s time to Fall in love with Fall. There is no shortage of fun activities to partake in across the state of North Carolina this September through November. Which is your favorite part of the season? The leaves falling, the pumpkin carving, or all the delicious beverages to taste. I just want to scream “It’s fall y’all”. Except it still feels like a sauna outside currently, and this weekend it was too hot to even go to the pool. Which left me with plenty of time to daydream about the cooler weather and all the fun to be had.  I even put my football pumpkin on my porch because it’s time ladies and gentlemen, it’s time!
