What Income is Happiness?

I think we all tell ourselves once in our lives - "If only I could make a little more money , I would be happier" Professors from Princeton University have found an income that shows participants happier. In the study it was found that there is a number where people had an increase in day-to day happiness and less stress. That magic number appeared to be $75,000 a year in income. That income created a lower stress factor and making money was no longer a large issue in day-to- day life. So, would more money make one even more happier- NO- happiness did not increase at income levels more than $75,000. It shows that it leveled off, so more money does not equal more happiness. Instead of making your goals unachievable, why not obtain what is achievable and have happiness along the way?
