A Study Finds Money Can Buy Happiness Even If You Aren’t Rich

One of the most famous clich├ęs ever is: “Money can’t buy happiness.” Well, according to a new study in the Los Angeles Times, that is not true:

Researchers at Harvard Business School just wrapped up a study of almost 4,500 people that found money can, in fact, buy you happiness. And it can do it even if you aren’t rich.

The study found that paying someone to do, “unenjoyable daily tasks” to give you more free time will make you significantly more satisfied with your life.

And it worked even when people spent pretty reasonable amounts on help, like less than $80 a month, to take care of things like cooking, shopping, and their chores.

So who wants to mow the lawn for Sarah Pepper or Geoff Sheen? (Lauren Kelly doesn’t have a lawn at her apartment)
