Kids Who Do Chores Are More Successful Adults! ____________________________________________________ In the Harvard Grant Study, the longest running study in history, researchers identified two things that people need in order to be happy and successful: one of them was love, and the other was work ethic💚📚. They came to a conclusion that a great way to ensure adults have a good work ethic is by doing chores as a kid🧹🧤. Help navigate your child to successful adulthood by activating micro responsibilities in their day-to-day lives. This can include things like performing simple chores around the house on a daily basis and using checklists to ensure it gets done. Then celebrating those wins as a family. Interested in being a part of a community with link-minded neighbours, and parents, a strong sense of community, plus access to top education? The Rise West Grove Estates is nestled in the picturesque community of West Springs Calgary where you can live without compromise and thrive with your family.

“The key to healthy aging is relationships, relationships, relationships.” - George Vaillant . In 1938, scientists at Harvard began studying a group of about 300 male students (including JFK, a sophomore at the time) as part of a longitudinal study on health and aging. Over 80 years later, the study is still going, with the men who are still alive now in their late 90s. . Every 2 years over the course of their lives these men were interviewed and had in-depth health analyses including blood tests, brain scans and DNA tests. The study eventually expanded to include their wives and children, as well as a group of men from a lower income neighborhood of Boston. . What is the greatest lesson from this vast collection of data? That the quality of one’s relationships has a greater impact on health and happy aging than markers such as cholesterol, genetics, IQ or social class. . The men who were the most satisfied with their relationships at age 50 were the healthiest at age 80. Happy relationships protect one’s brain, buffer against chronic pain, and prevent mental and physical decline. . Loneliness, it was found, is as toxic to one’s health as alcoholism and smoking. . Pictured here are my grandparents, Jack and Ginnie Rarig, who were married for over 60 years and were living proof of this concept! . Just a reminder this #menshealthweek that nurturing your relationships with family and friends is just as important as nurturing your body and mind! . For more info on the study’s findings, check out George Vaillant’s book “Triumphs of Experience” and Robert Waldinger’s TED talk “What makes a good life?”. . #livenaturopathically #nourishyourself #naturopathicmedicine #naturopathicrevolution #naturopathicdoctor #healthyliving #mentalwellness #mentalwellbeing #emotionalhealth #harvardgrantstudy #robertwaldinger #healthyaging #aginggracefully #happyhealthylife

When it comes to chores, it can feel like, without a thousand prompts from us, our kids won’t do what we want them to. We end up stepping in and reminding them when instead our kids should be stepping up and helping out. If you are a parent who is tired of repeating reminders ad nauseam (i.e. all parents) then I have some ideas for you. ⁠ ⁠ Make a chart! This is not a chart for stickers, it is not a reward. It is a resource and a reminder to your kids of what is expected of them. So, instead of saying “Did you empty the dishwasher?” ten thousand times, you can say “Sasha, can you please go check the chart and make sure you’ve done everything you need to do today?” It gives them autonomous responsibility over their activity and also saves you the work of reminding them for each chore. Now you might end up reminding them to check the chart, but at least you've avoided the "I didn't know what I had to do" argument, and over time they will self-start to check the chart.⁠ ⁠ Make them think. Ask questions that have your child gather the information from around them instead of from you. You can ask, “What do I need to see from you before you leave the kitchen? I want you to tell me what needs to get done before you go watch TV.” If you are using a chore chart they can refer to that. If not, your child is building the skills of observation and deduction to figure out what needs to be done. ⁠ ⁠ When using these ideas, you are leaving them the space the figure things out on their own. With this structure in place you may be surprised in the future by your child's proactive behavior. ⁠ ⁠ Remember, a house is a community just like any other, and we all need to pitch in for it to be a healthy one. Through chores we are teaching our children to do things not only for personal gain, but for the good of their community. This is so important for building close relationships which research has shown us is the greatest indicator of happiness and health later in life. ⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #raisinglions #harvardgrantstudy #chores

Robert Waldinger is a professor who conducted the longest running study on adult human development, the Harvard-Grant Study. He finds that the greatest predictor of well being is not genetics, IQ, or wealth but the quality of the relationships we build. Children are not born knowing how have relationships, they have to learn how to have them from us. And as parents and teachers, we might be a bit overwhelmed by that responsibility of that task and trying to figure out what that means. ⁠ ⁠ How SHOULD you tend to your relationships, set boundaries, keep your word, etc? Well, one practical place to start is with chores. In the study, Waldinger finds that chores are the number one indicator of success in adult life, and that it helps facilitate our ability to build connections later. So we thought we’d focus this week on making chores work in your home, to lower day to day stress and serve your kids later in life. Because, if you teach your kids how to pitch in, they will be better prepared to love and participate in adult life and relationships when that time comes.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #raisinglions #howtoraisealion #selfcare #relationships #responsibility #takeresponsibility #chores #pitchin #helpout #parenting #parentingtips #parenthood #consciousparenting #compassionatediscipline #setboundaries #development #learnlifeskills #raisingthefuture #momlife #mumlife #dadlife #harvardgrantstudy

Οι ανθρώπινες σχέσεις είναι το "κλειδί" για μια ευτυχισμένη ζωή. Υπάρχουν αμέτρητες μελέτες που το υποστηρίζουν, ωστόσο ένα από τα πιο ισχυρά παραδείγματα προέρχεται από τον Δρ. Robert Waldinger, ψυχίατρο και καθηγητή του Πανεπιστημίου του Harvard και διευθυντή της πιο μακροχρόνιας μέχρι σήμερα μελέτης για την ανθρώπινη υγεία και ευτυχία (ένα 80ετές πρόγραμμα). Το συμπέρασμα αυτής της μελέτης: "Οι καλές σχέσεις μας κρατούν πιο ευτυχισμένους και υγιείς." Σύμφωνα με την έρευνα, ανεξάρτητα από την οικονομική τους κατάσταση ή την επαγγελματική επιτυχία, οι συμμετέχοντες που είχαν θετικές και στενές σχέσεις με τους συντρόφους ή/και την οικογένεια και τους φίλους τους, δεν είχαν μόνο την τάση να είναι πιο ευτυχισμένοι, αλλά και να ζουν για μεγαλύτερο χρονικό διάστημα. Από την άλλη πλευρά, όσοι είχαν βιώσει εκτεταμένες περιόδους μοναξιάς ανέφεραν ότι αισθάνονται λιγότερο ικανοποιημένοι από τη ζωή και ήταν πιο επιρρεπείς σε ασθένειες. ⁠ ⁠ #HarvardGrantStudy #KeyToHappiness #HarvardUniversity #SecondGenerationStudy #happiness #interpersonal #relationships #life #lifo #psygrams #gacbp #psychologytoday⁠ Πηγή: https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2017/04/over-nearly-80-years-harvard-study-has-been-showing-how-to-live-a-healthy-and-happy-life/

This came in the mail today and my psychology nerd heart is so excited to learn from the longest longitudinal study of human development. The attachment research is fascinating. "this book I will focus on the rich potential of a telescopic view of life. There will be plenty of surprises, because a long enough view can turn conventional views of causation upside down. For instance, studied prospectively, physical health turns out to be just as important a cause of warm social supports and vigorous exercise as exercise and social supports are causes of physical health. Some readers will surely be outraged at such heresy, but as Galileo discovered, telescopes can get people into a lot of trouble" #frommylibrary #alwayslearning #attachment #attachmenttheory #bookstagram #books #research #lovebravely #livewell #harvardgrantstudy #psychology #love

Here is another audio excerpt from the #backtohuman book introduction. Workplace loneliness is spreading in part because we have replaced human interactions with digital ones. Loneliness can harm your health that’s why it’s so important to build strong relationships at work and at home. The strongest predictor of life satisfaction isn’t money or career success, it’s strong relationships!

A marvelous 75-year long study, which was conducted by a group of Harvard researchers, has shown that love is really all that matters. The participants’ lifelong experiences revealed that happiness and life fulfillment revolves around love or simply searching for love. ❤️ #HarvardGrantStudy

Interesting how research of the lifestyle habits of Italian immigrants from a small town in Pennsylvania, the brain scans of thousands of people in Germany, and a 75 year long Harvard study, all came up with somewhat similar results regarding healthy living. What does Dr. Stuart Wolf, Dr. John Bruhn, Dr. Robert Waldinger and Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer's research all have in common? Start applying it in your life today!

Conducted over 75 years, the Harvard Grant Study was one of the longest and most comprehensive studies in history. Harvard psychiatrist Dr. George Vaillant explains in his book that the study discovered two essential ingredients proven to correlate with a happy existence; "One is love. The other is finding a way of coping with life that does not push love away". He went on to explain that the only thing that matters in life is relationships; "Happiness is love. Full stop". We humans are bonding machines. We bond to one another, to animals and to things. Babies bond in utero with the sound of their mother's heart beat. We are all born to bond. At the start of every day I ask myself 3 important questions to consciously switch on my bonding: 1. Who would I love to bond with? 2. What would I love to bond with? 3. Why is this important to my vision? The image below is a moment in time of bonding with myself, the photographer, my audience, the cello, the tree, the environment and this project. Cue the music, thanks to the Beatles, “Love is all you need!”. #bonding #HarvardGrantStudy #Love #Happiness Photography by: Dan A'Vard

Robert Waldinger: "The clearest message that we get from this 75-year study is this: Good relationships keep us happier and healthier. Period." ✨🙌🏻 . . . #healthy #happy #fullfilling #life #thesecret #relationships #love #care #attachment #harvardgrantstudy #harvardmedicalschool #tedtalk

Love is the most important thing. Love is really all that matters in life. If you question that for one minute - there's even a study about it. It's called the Harvard Grant Study. While the study didn't include women, it followed 268 male Harvard graduates for 75 years of their life. It found that even though a person could have a successful career, money and good physical health, without supportive, loving relationships, they wouldn’t be happy. One participant who started out very unhappy at the start of the study, ended up being one of the happiest at the end. He was the happiest as he spent his entire life looking for love. So open your hearts, and search for love every day of your life. "Happiness is the only cart, love is the horse." ~ George Vaillant (director and author of Triumphs of Experience - The Men of the Harvard Grant Study) #loveisthemostimportantthing #whatareyouwaitingfor #lovesomebody #lifeisshort #happinessisthecart #loveisthehorse #harvardgrantstudy #georgevaillant #transformationtuesday #knowledgeispower #feelitinyoursoul #openheart #searchforhappiness #lovewins #messageinabottle #loveisanocean

We give you our heart, since you hold the key...which is to spread love to your fellow man and the fellow beings who share space and life and the common bonds of human experience, some combination of birth-love-eat-breathe-sex-strive-loss-happiness-death...if you haven't read about it or heard of it, the ongoing 'Grant Study' begun at Harvard Medical School in the 1940's, is a fascinating proponent of love as the ONE greatest factor in a happy life after following and interviewing hundreds of individuals in detail over the course of their lives. As quoted George Vaillant, a lead scientist and author of this project, "Happiness is love. Full stop."
