Money can’t buy you love … or happiness

Sure, we know that money can’t buy you love. And, it won’t necessarily bring you happiness either

Ken Dychtwald Ph.D., psychologist, gerontologist and author, writes today about the growing body of global research on happiness. Citing World Database of Happiness statistics, Dychtwald notes:

Guatemalans have the same happiness score as Canadians, although their income is only one-eighth as much. What does tend to reliably correlate with happiness is the quality of relationships with family and friends and a personal sense of belonging to one’s community.

Apparently weather has little to do with happiness either as Iceland ranks #5 to the US #17.
