Be happy . . .

In their book Happiness: Unlocking the Mysteries of Psychological Wealth, father and son Ed Diener and Robert Biswas-Diener put pay early on to the myth that you need to be a monetary millionaire to be wealthy. True wealth, according to them, is instead a healthy, well-balanced combination of several elements:

  • Life satisfaction and happiness
  • Spirituality and meaning in life
  • Positive attitudes and emotions
  • Loving social relationships
  • Engaging activities and work
  • Values and life goals to achieve them
  • Physical and mental health
  • Material sufficiency to meet our needs

Priceless.
