As the director of 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a fulfilling, long life.

Top lifestyle habits that separate the rich from the poor! A countdown of life-changing ways that can help the poor live like the rich and be more successful! #9. “Sleep-In”- The saying goes “the early bird catches the worm” and this couldn’t be more true as a 5 year study by Thomas Corley has shown that 50% of self-made millionaires wake up at least 3 hours before they go to work. Many of these millionaires use the extra hours in order to workout, plan their days so they are more efficient, and to brainstorm new ideas. People on the poorer end of the spectrum have a tendency to sleep until the last minute and go into their days less prepared. Also, forcing yourself to wake up when you don’t want to can have the added benefit of giving you more energy, as having a strict and consistent regimen allows your body to function at a higher capacity. Consistently waking up early allows you to take charge of your day, just think of an alarm clock as the bell in a boxing match. However, a lot of poor people don’t have the option of waking up early as they are forced to work long hours, night shifts, and shifts that constantly fluctuate making it harder for them to lock into a healthy circadian rhythm. #8. “Eat Poorly”- The phrase “You are what you eat” could not fit more appropriately when speaking of this big difference between the rich and poor. Getting past the notion that poor people sometimes get stuck eating bad food because for the most part healthier food is more expensive or that poor people find it harder to find the time to cook from home, there is a huge link between success and a healthy diet. Eating fast food and unhealthy snacks can drain your body and mind. If you have ever eaten McDonald’s breakfast, you will know that instead of feeling full of energy and ready to attack the day it usually just makes you want to go back to sleep. Though it can be tough getting into the habit of planning meals, shopping for the right kind of groceries and weaning off sugar, salt and fatty foods the end results are always worth it. Most rich people, though their are exceptions, have figured out early that they won’t be able to sustain success without the proper food fueling their days. This is one improvement that doesn’t require having a personal chef either, as just attempting to consistently eat better foods or eating on a healthy schedule can have instant results. #7. “Skip Exercise”- A recent study shows that 76% of rich people exercise half an hour or more everyday. This fact goes hand in hand with the other topics of rich people being all-around healthier. One of the main reasons that more successful people exercise more is because they know that in order to be fully focused and ready for the day the body and mind have to cooperate. Exercising can also help you to deal with stress and solve problems with the full working capacity of your body. If you are feeling sleepy or sluggish exercise can wake you up and help you to continue on at full-strength. Access to Gym memberships, personal equipment and the ability to take part in leisure activities that may be too expensive for the poor does play into the rich being able to stay in better shape, but anyone can workout without those things and doing it can work wonders. Adding daily exercise of even just half an hour can increase your productivity and help you to stick to your schedule and reach your goals. #6. “Watch T.V.”-According to Thomas Corley’s book Rich Habits, 67% of wealthy people watch less than an hour of television a day as opposed to 23% of poor people. This could be do to the fact that successful people know that television is a distraction from achieving goals and replace the time with more productive habits. It could also be a result of the fact that rich people tend to have their hands in more than one business, so they don’t have time to watch television. The study also shows that poor people tend to watch less quality television than poor people as there is a significant amount of poor people that watch reality shows. Dedicated sports fandom and video games are another type of escapism that the rich don’t necessarily participate in on the levels that the poor do. As the rich usually have easy going lifestyles where they can meet success in real life one can see why they don’t feel the need to hang on to the hopes of their team winning or beating a level in a videogame to feel a sense of accomplishment. But no one can blame those who haven’t reached financial success for enjoying sports, television and video games because sometimes it is impossible to climb the ladder with so many obstacles (some that are put in place by the rich) in everyday life. Poor people may need to take refuge in these things to distract them from their everyday struggles and avoid depression.

Two and a half years ago, during my first visit in India, I spent 2 days walking all around the slums of Mumbai. Even though I got to learn quite a bit about the life in the slums, I didn’t have the chance to live inside the slums and because of that I left with more questions than answers. So now that I came back to India for the second time, I decided to go back to Mumbai and spend five days living in Dharavi, which is one of the largest slums in the world. This experience opened my eyes in ways I couldn’t have imagined, because I got to spend so much time with the local people, who completely transformed my outlook on what their lives were like. You see, as most outsiders, I had a very distorted view of the people of the slums. We grow up hearing stories about them dying on the streets, no one being able to read and write, kids having to sleep surrounded by flesh-eating rats and so on. There are, of course, tons of problems that need to be addressed, especially when it comes to sanitation. For example, sources say that in Dharavi there is an average of 1 toilet for a thousand people. Also, livestock generally lives in the same quarters with people and that, combined with the fact that the local water sources lack cleaning facilities, sometimes causes the spread of contagious diseases. However, people there are just like everywhere else. They have their own dreams, goals, careers, thoughts and emotions. They are in no way different from the rest of us. It doesn’t matter where we come from. We are all equal. Some of us are born with golden spoons in our mouths, others are not. But that doesn’t define us. What defines us is our pursuit of happiness, our compassion for others and our ability to adapt to whatever circumstances we’re in and make the best of them. Subscribe!

Everything runs in a cycle and mindless consumption is corrupting that cycle. This is not just an environmental issue, it's a YOU issue. The average American is expected to throw away 90,000 pounds of trash in their lifetime. Cutting down on plastic is imperative to insuring our wildlife and food supply does not become completely wiped out for future generations. The ocean is a big concern for me with our coral dying all over the planet as plastic whirlpools the size of continent are forming, extinguishing entire species and killing countless marine wildlife. If a washed up whale stomaching 64 pounds of plastic they had digested doesn’t make you sick, I really don’t know what else to say. Hopefully those are enough reasons for you to care, now let’s get into the swaps. GO GREEN NOW! 1. WRAPPAS Reusable food wraps: http://wrappa.com.au/our-shop/ 2.

Download the complete film on iTunes now: http://radi.al/unReal. unReal is available for digital download on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and more and is currently on a worldwide film tour. To celebrate the release of unReal on iTunes (http://radi.al/unReal), Teton Gravity Research (TGR) and Anthill release one of the most acclaimed segments from the film. Widely recognized as the best slopestyle mountain biker in the world, Brandon Semenuk has become the first mountain biker to film a full segment in a single continuous shot. This uninterrupted shot was filmed by the most advanced gyro-stabilized camera system, the GSS C520, mounted to a truck on a custom road built next to a custom trail that took three weeks to build. This true cinematic achievement required perfect coordination between Semenuk, Anthill Films, and TGR with regard to athleticism, planning, timing and logistics. Injured at the time, Semenuk only hit the full line once. The historic moment was produced for unReal, the feature mountain bike film inspired by the unprecedented creative union of production companies TGR and Anthill Films, and the limitless imaginations of a group of the best mountain bikers in the world.
