Invest In Experiences

  • Even this may not sound like a practical thing to do, an intangible experience can often bring you joy for longer than a physical object.
  • Experiences are short-lived, but not in a psychological sense. They live on in our memories, they live on in the stories we recall and tell - they get more satisfying over time, but material goods only decrease.
  • We also get boosts of pleasure from planning and anticipating experiences (vacations, for example).
  • Another benefit of investing in experiences is that they inspire us to engage in more altruistic behaviors.
