Spending Time (Not Money) Increases Happiness

Creating ExperiencesWhen it comes to the form of wealth that makes your life most rich, spending time with the intention of enjoying life experiences with friends and family is the key to happiness. According to a growing body of social science research, the best way to increase the enjoyment, satisfaction, and general happiness for both you and others is to prioritize time over money. It all relates back to the basic idea that we are fundamentally social creatures with brains that evolved for connection and community. The wealth we seek the most isn’t in our finances; it’s in the time we get to spend with our family and friends. The abundance we covet the most isn’t making money; it’s making memories! As I like to say, “Money is the currency of transactions; happiness is the currency of interactions.”
