Spending money on this can boost happiness: Psychology expert

CNBC interviewed Elizabeth Dunn, a UBC psychology professor, about her research on happiness.

“If you have a lot of money and a lot of nice stuff, but you’re spending your time doing things that you dislike, then your minute-to-minute happiness and overall happiness is likely to be pretty low,” she said.

The story also appeared on Yahoo.

Dunn’s research was also mentioned in a similar Business Insider story.
