From AM New York:
Researchers followed 150 graduates from the University of Rochester and Knox College in Illinois for two years and assessed their satisfaction with life, self-esteem and relationships. Participants also rated their levels of anxiety, stress and physical ailments like headaches.
Graduates hungry for wealth, glamour or fame â€” and achieved those goals â€” were the most anxious and unhappy, researchers found. On the flip side, those who developed strong relationships and a sense of community felt less stressed and more self-assure.
