How Much Money Do You Need To Be Happy?!
By Jatinder Singh Associate Partner, Lighthouse International
It's a question that most of us have thought about! 🙂 How much money do you think you need to be happy? Is it earning 100k, 200k or £1m a year?
True legends know that success is not just about wealth. It's about much more than that and involves all aspects of our lives physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
So you may be surprised that research from website 80,000hours.org points out that the money we need to be happy is a lot less than many of us might think! They say,
"Once you get to an individual income of around $40,000 [approx £25k], other factors, such as health, relationships and a sense of purpose, seem far more important than income. So our recommendation is not to focus on earning more than this (insofar as you want to become happy, anyway)."
