Happiness. The elusive goal of all. Everyone thinks that more money will certainly bring us happiness, but does it, really?
It is being reported that money isn’t the thing which brings most people happiness. More sex and more sleep top the list on the happiness scale.
In actuality, many other factors, such as strong community and job security, also rated more significant than an increased income.
The Oxford Economics and the National Center for Social Research was commissioned to develop a new happiness study. Research from polling 8,250 people in Britain concluded that the average person needed more sex and sleep to gain greater personal happiness and overall well-being.
People who got the most sleep scored 15 points higher on the index than those with sleep struggles, and people deeply dissatisfied with their sex lives scored seven points lower than very satisfied poll-takers.
Interestingly, an increase by more than double in household income only brought an increase in happiness of two points.
Research concluded that even if there is up to a quadruple in income, it will bring little increase to overall happiness, whereas being well-rested and sex-satisfied resulted in a significant impact on how joyful you feel.
So, there is good news for all of you looking to get a salary hike to be happy. Instead of working yourself to the bone in hopes that your boss will notice, so you get that desired promotion or salary increase, what you really need to do is get back to bed, Sleep and enjoy!
