What is that first thing you decide to do when you get your salary credited to your account? Well, most of us run out to shop the things we are willing to buy for the longest time.
But why do we do it?
We do it with the hope that maybe the same thing will be able to give us happiness that will last longer. But is it true? Does it even last the amount of time we thought it would? It never really does.
According to the researches taken out, we can buy and buy things but happiness will fade away as soon as it becomes a part of our life.
Yes, the thing that becomes ordinary, we start taking it for granted and then it does not give us the same amount of happiness it gave us when it was new.
So what is that one thing we can have and do that can actually make us feel happier for a longer time?
Cornell University researchers took shopping and traveling on the same aspect to see what is the level of happiness both give in comparison.
It was then found out that a person feels the same when they go on a trip what they feel when they buy something new. But the difference that falls in between is that the amount of happiness will not last as long when you buy something.
The memories that you gather when you travel or learn a new sport, or take classes of adventure sports or anything like that, it brings out the same amount of happy hormones in the body as it did on the first time.
But this is not the same as the purchase. You can look at the product several times and may feel nothing at all.
So the next time you get your salary, you would know what you have to do to make yourself happy for the longest time.
