Can experiences bring you happiness?


When experiences are discussed it is often associated with the words ‘life changing’……  So if they are so good why do we not do more of them?

Recent research by  Dr Thomas Gilovich of Cornell University suggests that

“rather than buying the latest iPhone or a new BMW….. you’ll get more happiness spending money on experiences like going to art exhibits, doing outdoor activities, learning a new skill, or traveling.”

To find out more from Dr Gilovich check out the link to his article The Science of why you should spend your money on experiences, not things
