What The 1960s Got Right About Health, Happiness And Well-Being



When we think about the 60s, we might conjure up a decade when chain-smoking and two-martini lunches were still in vogue. Or, on the other end of the spectrum, we may think of a time defined by acid-dropping, free-loving counterculture. But however you look at it, the decade of the cultural revolution was a time when our ideas about health, wellness and happiness were radically changing.

In some ways, the spirit of the 1960s counterculture has made a resurgence today: We’ve arguably returned to a time when many are questioning the value of our relentless pursuit of “success” (and the stress that comes along with it), asking whether our hard-driving lifestyles are causing us to miss out on some of the important things in life. Interest in yoga, meditation and Eastern spirituality — which were all originally popularized in the West during the 60s — have also peaked in recent years, becoming ingrained in our cultural lexicon and American lifestyles.

From Transcendental Meditation to family dinners, here are 10 tips from the 1960s on living well.
