For the first time in human history, social scientists are researching what makes people happy. This article provides an insight into what the studies indicate for happiness, especially the effects of money and age.
Based on the results of the study, joy is not always what it's crazy to be! Or at least the keys to happiness may not be what we thought they were. Well, I suppose it depends on what you thought they were.
Okay, what do you think of age and money (and release marital status)? Do this matter in our quest to be happy?
Let's look at the richest first, as it appears to be on top of all the list. Do you have wealthier happiness than others?
Many people think money will make them happy, that the salary will be high or the winning lottery will solve their problems. We often spend money we do not have on materials that we hope will enable us to feel better.
The truth is, income has only little effect on happiness. For the most part, the winner will only produce a temporary increase in one happiness, but that's all.
Research shows that wealthy people are generally happier than poor, but not much. Unbelievable, right? We are talking about our untamed citizens.
Auður has a headache. It can lead to excitement and anxiety associated with money management. A rich man must take care not to waste or lose his destiny and sometimes to keep family members and friends away from the stash.
Some studies analyzed disposable income and their impact at ease. Surprisingly, even when disposable income increased significantly, quality of life was still about!
If you make money first and think it will solve your problems, please go back to the drawing board. Research indicates that people who value money in advance of other goals are less satisfied with their lives.
If resources do not make people happier, why do so many people go to such extremes to catch their hands on green things?
What about age? Are you young? Or are older people happier?
Okay, this is interesting. The study indicates that happiness tends to be fairly stable over age divisions.
In other words, if you're definitely happy in the thirties, you're likely to be still happy in the sixties and eighties, even if you have new health issues related to aging. Nobody likes to grow old. Yet, many are still happy and important in the twilight years.
Married people tend to be the healthiest and happiest in their entirety. Daily friendship and fellowship seems to be very useful. Married people have a good support system. They tend to have sex more often than unmarried people and to have sex regularly linked to more happiness. I hope it does not surprise anyone!
Other factors, such as optimism, goals and religious relationships, relate to happiness and research are made on additional factors. It will take time for the water to clear, since the happiness (subjective well-being) literature is so young.
What about personality?
This could be the biggest surprise of all of all. Your personality has a lot to do with how much you have thought about.
Personality is something that forms early in life and is fundamentally stable throughout life. We have little control over it, but it has a lot to do with our happiness or lack of them.
Extroverts tend to be happier than introverts. Those who enjoy the societies of others and have good social skills tend to be happier. People who spend a lot of time alone or isolating explain more depression and lower satisfaction with their lives.
Does this not affect the power of relationships? It is always wise for us to embrace our relationships. Research clearly shows that relationships meet us and give us an incentive to live. No one was meant to be an island, so if you're hiring one's cut, go out and meet new friends. And keep meeting new friends for the rest of your life.
When you give your relationships or help others, you'll feel deep and everlasting pleasure and good things will come back to you.
Want some fun? Ask your friends and collections that make people happy. See if they know that wealth and age are big flops, but marriage, personality and relationships are real winners.
