DailyDirt: Happiness Is...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The topic of death and suicide has been floating around the media lately -- from the gun control proposals to try to prevent future school shootings to the prominent suicide of internet activist, Aaron Swartz. So to fight some of these negative thoughts, here are just a few articles on happiness. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it correlates pretty well

    No, the article says people who EARN more money are happier, and happier people EARN more money.
    I know a lot of people who INHERITED, and generally I perceive them as being less happy than the norm.
    Personally, I have nearly always been a pretty happy person, and I made more money than all the rest of my family combined. I didn't find it necessary for happiness, though, and I wanted my kids off to a good start, so I gave it to them, in one form or another.
    I no longer have much money, but I am the happiest and healthiest (for my age) person I know.
