Money Can Buy Happiness!

By Gavin Sauder on March 1, 2018 - 7:59am | Garden Spot Village | General | Community Life

This short film features Garden Spot Village residents explaining how to buy happiness. Researchers from Harvard and several other universities surveyed a diverse cross-section of adults from the United States, Canada, Denmark and The Netherlands and published the results in the Aug. 8, 2017, journal PNAS, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The researchers found that “individuals who spend money on time-saving services report greater life satisfaction” and that “adults report greater happiness after spending money on a time-saving purchase than on a material purchase.” Garden Spot Village residents agree!
