Ways to Get Happy
But also spend money wisely
While its crucial to stash some cash away for a rainy day, indulging in the occasional shopping trip can actually reduce sadness by making us feel more incontrol. While retail therapy seems to be a legit thing, science shows that spending money on others is especially beneficial to happiness. And if you really want to boost your mood, experts suggest combining an actual gift with the gift of your time so both you and your giftee enjoy both the purchase and the time spent together. To reap the moodboosting benefits, enjoy the gift with your loved one whether youre giving an experience, like cooking classes, or something more material, like new golf clubs.
