This year make a change! Get yourself and others the gift of an experience. In return, you’ll receive the gift of love: thank-you’s, stories around a dinner table, memories.
According to recent social experiments conducted by Amit Kumar, doctoral student at Cornell, “Experiences foster successful social relationships, become a more meaningful part of one’s identity, are less susceptible to unfavorable and unpleasant comparisons, and don’t lend themselves to problematic regrets of action.”
It was Kumar’s observation that inspired his research: “We live in a consumerist society in which large increases in wealth have not brought about corresponding increases in well-being.”
It’s true…every year we moan and groan about the impending season’s burden of just-too-much: Too many parties to attend; Too many gifts to buy; Too many decorations to put up (and take down); and too much thinking about it all.
