Money DOESN’T buy happiness: How friends and family – not flashy possessions – bring true contentment

Dr Garcia said: ‘This doesn’t mean that material things make you unhappy, just that they don’t seem to come up in the same context as the word for happiness.’

The study is a part of a larger research project on how people describe both positive and negative events in their lives.

The researchers believe that the word analysis reflects a collective perception among the members of our society as to what should make us happy.

Dr Garcia said: ‘Just as the Beatles sang, most people understand that money can’t buy you happiness or love.

But even if we as individuals can understand the importance of close and warm relationships on a social level, it isn’t certain that everyone is aware that such relationships are actually necessary for our own personal happiness.’
