The Secret to Finding Joy in Existential Spending

It’s science!

Great news: Researchers say money can buy happiness as long as you use it to buy experiences. So go ahead and keep shopping for luxury items to hurl into the abyss; just make sure to fully “experience” them. How? For example:

Travel creates a bank of positive memories upon which you can draw at any time. Fly your $425 sunglasses to Central America and show them the Equator. Look around at the local citizens through your shaded lenses, holding their gaze and mentally trading places with them. How do you look in your new glasses as you survey yourself through their eyes? Fantastic, probably. You’ll never forget that.
