Recently, I read an article that summarized the results of an 85-year study conducted by researchers at Harvard. The goal of the study was to determine the secret to happiness. In a new book, The Good Life: Lessons from the World's Longest Scientific Study of Happiness the results and recommendations are being shared in depth. For now, let me share that they have determined there is one factor above all else: good relationships. Waldinger, Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard and Director of the Harvard Study of Adult Develpment said:
So if you were to make one decision to best ensure your own health and happiness, it should be to cultivate warm relationships.
I love that CAST has been practicing this since its begininng! At our core, we are about relationship: with each other and with those we serve.
In other news, I'm excited to be introducing the new CAST logo. Please take a minute to read the explanation below. Great logos not only make an impression, but they create a tool for you to prompt conversations and share information. I encourage you to let the new logo do both...prompt conversations and share information about the important work of CAST.
Finally, please consider joining us for a book study and/or for BINGO. These are great opportunities to connect for friendship and fun! Details below...will look forward to seeing you there!
