Following on from Freedom Friday and the Christmas Shopping Special yesterday today I have another book recommendation for you. The book is called: Happy Money: The New Science of Smarter Spending by Elizabeth Dunn and Michael Norton. It looks at Money and Happiness and how the way you spend it can have an impact on your happiness.
For example one of the finding was that you can get more happiness from spending money on others than on yourself - so perhaps all that Christmas shopping is not so bad after all? Any way if you are all spent out already or you don't want to buy another book then there was also a good piece and video interview about the research which you can read and watch, if that is of interest, at the link above.
I certainly buy into the concept in the book of - How “time affluence” is more important than a fat pay cheque. Decided not to clutter the post up with another you tube music video today as I couldn't decide between Happy Mondays, I Don't Like Mondays, and Happy Talk. But you can click the links if you want to hear them.
So on that bomb shell I'll leave it there for today - but don't forget to open your Advent Calendar window below for today's treat which might help you with you investing.
