Happiness is not just money

4년 전

Looks like a sense of happiness can be found on the lull in the daily schedule, rather than nominally in your account book.

According to a study published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science, having more free time turned out to increase the sense of happiness.

The conclusions were generated based on a survey of 4,600 adults in the United States and Canada. In 6 different studies they were asked what their options represented values, such as having more expensive homes but shorter work spaces, or less expensive homes but further distance.

As a result, more than half of participants said they preferred leisure time compared to money. The older the age of a person, they will prefer free time.

The respondents also do not mind spending more money to replace the time they can spend with family. For example, choose a faster road route even though toll rates are more expensive, or choose to pay people to clean the house so they can relax with children and spouses.

This tendency to choose free time versus money is good for high and low income groups.
