Spend Money On These 4 Things To Become A Happier Person

You’ll never regret spending money on some things. Here are a few of them.

I’m extremely conscious about my spending, not because I’m cheap, but because that leaves me with more money to spend on the things that actually matter to me.

Despite having extremely limited amounts of money to spend every month (I’m a university student), I work hard to make enough to fund the things that give me joy and fulfillment.

I’m confident that these 4 things — if spent upon wisely, will contribute positively to just about anyone’s life.

Making Your Loved Ones Happy

Money might not be able to buy happiness but it can certainly buy things that will make people around you happy.

I generously spend when it comes to birthdays and special occasions of my family and partner.

Gifts by themselves are not the key to someone’s heart, but they certainly further an existing bond.

Love + effort = long lasting relations. Gifts are a way of showing both.

A gift doesn’t always have to be an object. Go visit your parents on their birthday and see how their faces light up with joy. Randomly surprise someone with a gift card to let them know that you’re thinking of them. Gift someone a subscription to a meditation app or a yoga class to indirectly improve their health

Making your loved ones happy will make you happy. So it’s a win-win.

Seeing More Of The World

I out of all people know how much of a luxury travel is. So, I’m not asking you to visit the Swiss Alps or the Eiffel Tower (unless you can comfortably afford it of course).

COVID has kept us locked in our homes and neighborhoods for too long now. It’s time to start going out again.

Even before the pandemic, so many of us never bothered to visit even the nearby attractions from our city. We got too caught up in work, chores, and other obligations.

After countless weekends of drinking in the same bars, I realised that I’d much rather save that money to go to new places, new towns, and see new sights.

No matter where in the world you live, I can bet my right hand that there’ll be something to see within a few hours of where you live. Don’t give excuses. There will be some or the other hill, trek, beach, park, or tourist attraction.

If you’re middle class like I am, choose to spend money on seeing the world rather than on seeing the bottom of a glass at expensive restaurants every weekend.

Giving To People Who Need It

I live in India. I only have to step out of my house to come across deeply disadvantaged people.

Beggars, homeless people, disabled homeless beggars, children in tattered clothes begging — these are all common sights on Indian streets. So common that I’ve never once gone anywhere in the country where I haven’t encountered such ill-fortuned people.

Earlier, I used to turn a blind eye to them — giving myself the excuse of barely affording to fund my own lifestyle. Once I realized how privileged that is, I decided that I’d rather spend a few rupees lesser on drinks, travel, and other luxuries than ignore people who desperately need help.

No matter where in the world you live, there are guaranteed to be people suffering and in need of aid somewhere around you.

Choose to make their lives a tiny bit better by giving them a few bucks every now and then. Both your conscience and the other person will thank you for it.

Investing In Quality Tech Products

I don’t mean buy the latest iPhone instead of helping out someone in need.

If you’re reading this, it’s probable that you have enough money to do the first 3 things I’ve mentioned and also treat yourself a little.

Our phones and laptops are amongst our most used belongings these days. So, it makes sense to invest in high-quality ones.

It doesn’t have to be the latest, most expensive, or the most powerful device. It just has to be relatively fast, reliable, and long-lasting. Cheap tech products are none of those things.

As a content creator, my tech is important to me. It helps me do my best work, earn money, and build an audience. Using low-quality tech products for work is like setting up an office in a hut.

Good quality tech products enable you to lead a comfortable digital life. A high-quality digital life will help you make more money, new friends, and build a better brand.

Final Thought

Every piece of content about how to spend money comes from a position of relative privilege.

When you’re broke and thinking about where your next meal is going to come from, the last things you’d care about are gifts, travel, tech, and charity. I understand that.

But if you do have disposable income, consider spending it on these 4 things in order to make yourself and other people happier.
