“Does money make people happy? We don’t have all the answers by any means, but we do know much more about happiness than ever. And the bottom line is that scientific research suggests that most of the things that people believe make them happy really won’t—at least not in the long run.” ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “research shows that it’s certainly difficult to be truly happy if you live in poverty. If you’re always hungry or cold or living in unsafe surroundings or always owe somebody money, happiness can be elusive. So, below a certain income level, poor people are in fact less happy and less satisfied with their lives than most of us.” ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “But above the poverty level, things get complicated. ⠀⠀ Researchers at Princeton University analyzed data from a sample of over 450,000 adults in the United States. These respondents reported their annual income, and they rated how much they experienced positive emotions on the previous day. Emotional quality was assessed by questions asking people to think about the previous day and to rate how much happiness and enjoyment they experienced, and how much they smiled and laughed. ⠀⠀ The results showed that, up until an income of somewhere between $60,000 and $75,000—in 2010 dollars—more money was associated with feeling a little bit more happy. So a higher proportion of people who make, say, $70,000 tend to be happier than people who make, say, $40,000. The difference isn’t large, but it is statistically significant.” ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “The reason that money increases happiness up to a point seems to be that having a certain amount of money helps to fix certain problems in life that make people stressed out and unhappy. “ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ https://www.thegreatcoursesdaily.com/does-money-make-people-happy/ #follow4followback #followforfollowback #likeforlikes #likeforfollow #news #happy #mood #moody #sad #happiness #psychology #brain #therapy #depression #anxiety #feminist #feminism #money #poor #rich #economy #climatechange #globalwarming #usa #news #funfact #stressed

Events like Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas are becoming more and more frequent, according to the UK's ex-chief scientific advisor Professor Sir David King. Another expert in the field, Dr. Friederike Otto from Oxford University, says heatwaves like those seen in Europe earlier this year (with temperatures of 40°C throughout the continent) used to occur once every thousand years before 1750, however this frequency has rapidly escalated as a result of the increased atmospheric CO2 levels reaping havoc on the climate system.

Distress over climate change is real. That's because climate change is real. ⁠ __⁠ The impacts of climate change and the current climate emergency are one of the biggest issues facing global health. When 16-year-olds take more action than many politicians on these issues, anxiety and fear over the future can have daily impacts on how we parent, our mood and energy levels.⁠ __⁠ If you're overwhelmed by the future of the planet and frustrated with inaction and want to feel more active in solutions, talk to Jocelyn. Before she was a psychologist she majored in Geography and taught it at high school, she knows some things about the environment and positive actions that can help.⁠ __⁠ #climatechange #notbusinessasusual #climateemergency #climatedistress #therapy #psychology #ecowarrior #ecoworrier #ecofriendly #ecofriendlyproducts #zerowaste #loveourplanet #sustainableliving #bethechange #believeinbetter #sustainablestyle #choosetorefuse #climateaction #globalwarming #socialjustice #consciousandwild #startwithonething #environmentalist #climatejustice #sciencenotsilence #climatehope #innerwest #naturalhealth #complementaryhealth

Today we welcome Kind Earth ally, Anadil. She will be hosting this feed every Monday... . “There is no beauty in the finest cloth if it makes hunger and unhappiness.” ~ Mahatama Gandhi . Hi, I’m Anadil... a social entrepreneur, lover of artisanal handwoven textiles and founder of Chicago-based sustainable luxury brand, Neval @nevalstyle. The photo of me above was taken at the launch party for my company where I first met Abigail @abigailzoesworld almost 2 years ago. I instantly connected with the mischievous twinkle in her eyes and when we met for coffee a few weeks later, discovered we had much in common as far as our global perspectives, desire to connect with diverse cultures and protecting the environment for our kids 💪🏼😍🌻 . As part of the #KindEarthAlliance , I will focus on sharing #ecofriendly and #sustainable fashion information and tips with you. I would love to hear YOUR thoughts, as we will be building this #green community together. ”Sustainability” is a big word which can be fostered in many different ways. Personally, I feel that today SLOW is a revolution. Slow can manifest itself in any design, object or space that encourages #consciousconsumerism . In a loud, crowded, crazy world, I believe it’s good for the soul to live life better by living slower 💚🍃🌎 #fashionrevolution #nevalstyle #sustainableluxury #ethicalfashion

Cherries from the new harvest glistening under the morning sun. This year there has been no rain so the trees are stressing. The evenings are falling to 12 degrees while the days are around 21 degrees. We are all hoping there will be rain soon. . #mothernature #climatechange #indigenouslands #sustainablecoffee #climateaction #GlobalGoals #SDGs
