Yet, there's a notable lack of attention and concern given to the social aspect of retirement, experts said. It's a facet of retirement planning that's almost "hidden in plain sight," said Robert Waldinger, a clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Money is the "obvious" focus when it comes to retirement planning, Waldinger said. Put another way: "Social connections are really good for us" and "loneliness kills," Waldinger explained in a 2015 TED Talk titled "What makes a good life?" "Some people say, 'It's too late for me'" to make new social connections, Waldinger said.

CNN —Happiness is an idea that has been woven into the fabric of humanity, going back to ancient civilizations. Santos believes, however, that with some diligent and intentional practice, you can start to turn up your thermostat of happiness. “Every available study of happy people suggests that happy people are more social,” Santos said.

There's a lot of advice out there about how to be happier — from exercising more to practicing gratitude — and it can be difficult to identify just one small change you can make right now to improve your well-being. Thankfully, according to Dr. Robert Waldinger, director of the Harvard Study of Adult Development, there is one quick habit you can adopt to increase your happiness, which he shared during The Atlantic Festival in September. The decades-long Harvard happiness study that Waldinger directs found that people who are great at connecting with, and reaching out to, others everyday were the happiest, and were able to be more resilient when facing challenges in life. This skill is often referred to as social fitness, which is the act of consistently reviewing how we pour into our relationships, and improving any imbalances to become better friends and partners.

The unhappiest jobs are also some of the loneliest, according to an 85-year study from Harvard researchers. While particular roles can't be reliably correlated with dissatisfaction and burnout, certain job characteristics can be, Robert Waldinger, MD, a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and director of the Harvard Study of Adult Development, one of the longest-running studies on happiness, tells CNBC Make It. Jobs that require little human interaction and don't offer opportunities to build meaningful relationships with co-workers tend to have the most miserable employees, the study found. "It's a critical social need that should be met in all aspects of our lives," Waldinger explains. "Plus, if you are more connected to people, you feel more satisfied with your job, and do better work."

NEW YORK, Feb 6 (Reuters) - For generations, society has grappled with the question of whether money brings happiness. That's according to the findings of the Harvard Study of Adult Development, the world's longest study on happiness. In the Harvard study, the sample of participants with “more prestigious jobs and more money were no happier in their lives,” Schulz says. “Rather than buying a bigger house or a nicer car, if you use your money to share experiences with others, that money will get you a better return on happiness,” Schulz says. DO A MINI-HARVARD STUDY – ON YOURSELFHow the Harvard Study operates is by checking in with respondents – 724 original participants, some of whom are still around, and 1,300 descendants – for occasional reflection and self-evaluation.
When it comes to understanding what happens to people as they go through life, pictures of entire lives—of the choices people make and the paths they follow, and how it all works out for them—are almost impossible to get. Most of what we know about human life we know from asking people to remember the past, and memories are full of holes. The more time that passes, the more details we forget, and research shows that the act of recalling an event can actually change our memory of it. But what if we could watch entire lives as they unfold through time? What if we could study people from the time that they were teenagers all the way into old age to see what really matters to a person’s health and happiness, and which investments really paid off?
