Wondr Health survey reveals the key to happiness and health lies in close relationships

Happiness is a positive emotional and psychological state, characterized by feelings of contentment, joy, satisfaction, and well-being. Beyond a positive mood state, happiness includes living a purposeful, connected, and balanced life. To get a pulse on our participants’ thoughts on happiness, Wondr Health conducted a survey and asked them to share what brings them the most happiness. What follows are the results: 

Close relationships and health and well-being are key to happiness 

Our survey findings are in line with the 85-year Harvard study that affirms the key to happiness and health lies in close relationships. Over the decades, Harvard researchers have studied the participants’ health trajectories and their broader lives, including their triumphs and failures in careers and marriage. Dr. Robert Waldinger, the director of the study, a psychiatrist at Massachusetts General Hospital, and a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School said, “The surprising finding is that our relationships and how happy we are in our relationships has a powerful influence on our health,”.  

The revelations from this groundbreaking study highlight that the quality of our interpersonal bonds, our sense of connection, and the deliberate investment of time in relationships also is important in how long we live. The survey also found physical and emotional health and well-being as another important source of happiness and points to the need for a comprehensive benefits strategy for overall health.  

Research from the University of Oxford shows a link between happy workers and a 13% increase in productivity. On the flipside, unhappiness at work costs the world $8.8 trillion in lost productivity. By providing employees with tools to strengthen relationships and improve overall well-being, employers can help cultivate happiness among their population to ultimately engage employees, boost performance, and enhance job satisfaction and retention.
