Priceless Experiences – Not Things
Research shows that accumulating experiences, not things, creates lasting happiness. This is because a quick purchase may provide a hit of dopamine, but the thrill soon fades. Yet memories tend to last forever, sometimes getting even richer with time. Psychology Professor Thomas Gilovich of Cornell University said:
Our experiences are a bigger part of ourselves than our material goods. You can really like your material stuff….In contrast, your experiences really are part of you. We are the sum total of our experiences.
With that in mind, here are this season’s featured Priceless picks:
