“When you look at people who are really happy with their life and who feel fulfilled, they’re not really focused on material things, they’re focused on how to have an impact and leave the world a better place,” says Florida-based licensed psychologist Erika Martinez told Moneyish. Pax Tandon, a positive psychologist and the author of Mindfulness Matters agrees and told Moneyish that being of service is one way she recommends people find success in deeper ways. “Volunteering our time in service of others is among the top ways to access more happiness and wellbeing and it makes us feel of value,” she said. And a Harvard University study finds that embracing community helps people live longer and be happier.
