Time to choose happiness

Why spending your money on things to free up your time will really make a difference to how happy you feel with life


Time to choose happiness

Need to inject a little more happiness into your life?


Then start paying more attention to your watch than your wallet.

New research published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science (January 2016) has found that people who value their time more than their money are happier, and even the smallest changes can have big results.

So it's probably worth choosing to spend more on rent in order to have a shorter commute, or hiring a cleaner to do the domestic chores you hate and free up your time for something else. Tick tock!
