According to the results of a long-term study in Germany, people who prioritize family, friends, altruistic goals, and exercise are happier than those just chasing money and success.

(Researchers analysed data gathered by the German Socio-Economic Panel Survey (SOEP) from its widespread study of 60,000 Germans over 25 years. They found that the way people prioritise their lives was the key to happiness.

One of the study’s authors, Gert Wagner said, “Social goals are more important than materialistic goals.” He added, “It’s good to be healthy and in order to be healthy, it’s good for you if you do a little bit of sport.”

So get out there and be happy.)
