How much money makes you happy?
What you earn affects your happiness, to a point. A salary between $60,000 and $75,000 can bring “day-to-day feelings of happiness,” reports Fast Company, citing a global survey of 1.7 million people. And while $95,000 (well above Americans’ average household income) is the magic figure for “achieving fulfillment,” earning anything above that may not boost emotional wellbeing. Income isn’t the only factor for happiness, researcher Andrew Tebb told the publication. “It’s not trivial, but there are other factors… social relationships, family, and friends.”
