Let's pretend we're sitting down, face to face, and after some easy chitchat, I put on my reporter's hat and ask you this one dizzying question: What is the single most crucial factor when it comes to living a happy, healthy life?
Take a breath. Reflect. Have a glass of something.
The número uno most important factor.
Exercising daily? Very good guess. Eating well? Nice try.
But it's not the answer that can change your life in unexpected and remarkable ways.
"The most important factor in a happy and healthy life is a positive sense of connection with others," writes best-selling author Michael Gelb in his smart and entertaining book, "The Art of Connection."
