Does owning more stuff make you happy?
Are people who own lots of stuff any happier than people who don’t?
Studies show that owning more stuff doesn’t actually make us any happier. Psychologist, Jacqui Manning, explains how owning more stuff can make us more anxious, more irritable and that we tend to spend valuable time and energy worrying about it. Jacqui stresses there’s nothing wrong with buying things, but it’s a mistake to think they will bring us happiness.
