Life Satisfaction, Happiness, & Saving Money

Curated by CLAI

LIFE SATISFACTION V. HAPPINESS: Life satisfaction does not equate to happiness. For you can reasonably be satisfied with your life even if you think your life is going badly for you, and even if you feel bad. To be satisfied is just to regard your life as going well enough — it is satisfactory. You might think even a hard slog through a joyless existence is good enough. It sure beats being dead, and maybe you feel you have no right to complain about what God, or fate, has given you.

WOMEN NEED TO SAVE MORE: Women can more easily outlive their savings then men.

  1. Women make less money than men on average; when they stop working, their monthly Social Security checks are smaller, too.
  2. Also, women tend to live longer than men.

Lesson: Start saving more and earlier.
