Experiences beat possessions
Research finds that when it comes to long-term happiness, experiences tend to beat possessions. Basically, studies found folks enjoyed money spent on experiences (going out to eat, a vacation, a movie) than spending the same amount of money on buying “things”.
So, the next time you want to bless your bride, put dinner and a movie, or a walk in the park, or a long weekend, higher on the list. And put “things” lower on the list.
