Travelling Brings Much More Happiness Than Buying Things, According To Science

Shopping is part of our modern culture. The problem is that most of us don’t only go to the shops when we need something, but for other reasons too. If you have a high paying job – or even if you don’t – money might be burning a hole in your wallet. You may give into amazing advertisements. You may want to feel better about yourself. You may partake in ‘retail therapy’ and shop when you feel overwhelmed or emotional.


Shopping may give you a temporary job. But is it happiness? The instant gratification of a new purchase will likely be gone in a few hours or days. You may still use the products, but it may not bring you joy. Or you may not even use it because you already have something similar, you don’t need it, or don’t like it. The problem with this kind of shopping is you are often trying to buy happiness. Unfortunately, the cliche is true. Money can’t buy happiness. At least not when it comes to products.


When your initial joy disappears, you will crave the urge to buy something else to feel the satisfaction again. Products are your drug and shopping is the addiction. It’s like taking another hit. But true happiness never comes from buying things. Can you buy happiness at all? Not happiness perhaps, but you can buy experiences that can bring you lasting happiness.


According to Cornell University researchers, experiences can help you get out of the cycle of searching for happiness by buying products. (1) Psychology professor Thomas Gilovic indicates travel may be your real solution. Because travel can bring you true happiness. When you book a trip, you will experience the same hit of joy and satisfaction as when you buy new shoes or a new phone. However, travel also gives you lasting memories, experiences in a different culture or nature, valuable time with people you love, a new perspective, and more. These happy memories can supply you with joy for a long time.


Other than travel, different experiences can bring you a similar amount of joy. Learn new skills. Pick up a hobby. See a play or a ballet. Play sports. Go to festivals. Sign up for a road race. Go to unusual events. Try anything new! These activities will create memories and become a source of joy. You may even meet new friends to build future memories.


At the end of your life, you will never say “I regret in investing money into experiences and memories.” But you may regret wasting money on useless objects. The choice is yours. But remember, traveling and experiences are the real secret of happiness.

  1. I am one of those people who said, “I’ll never call a psychic or a magician or whatever” to help me with my problems – least of all my love problems, but I reached the point where I knew I needed some guidance, and I’m so glad I found this man called dr.ajeghe. When I nearly lost David in one of ouar stupid,fights (he broke up with me), I thought I had lost everything.i cry all day and think that he will never come back to me again.i read so many testimony about Dr. ajeghe love spell,how he help to bring back ex lover back.I quickly email him.and also get back my husband with his love spell. And when I was at my most desperate,he didn’t take advantage of me. You performed a very good service for a person in true need. I don’t know how you did it, or how this magic works, but all I know is, IT WORKS!! David my husband and I are happily back together, and I’ll always be grateful to dr.ajeghe email him for any kinds of help is very capable and reliable for help ajeghespelltemple@gmail.com or WhatsApp him +2349069171173

  5. I have been in relationship with my boyfriend for 2 year now and we were planning to get married soon and all of a sudden he left me for another girl, i really love this guy and never can imagine my life without him. I further tried all my best to get him back but all my effort to get him back in my life did not work out. It was on this faithful day, i came across some comments on a website about this great spell caster called Chief Dr Lucky, so many persons claimed that he help them to renew their relationship and bring their ex back, i had to contact him because he was my last hope. I contacted him through his email and he assured me that in two days time my boyfriend is going to leave the other girl and come back to me and it was a very great surprise to see my boyfriend coming back to me after two days. I am so very happy today that he came back to me and i achieved this with the help of Chief Dr Lucky, and i advice if you need his help too Email: Chiefdrlucky@gmail.com or Whats App: +2348132777335
