Getting a Library Card Feels As Good As a $2,300 Pay Raise?

 

 

Well THIS can't be right.

 

A new study tested how much people's happiness and sense of wellbeing increased with different pay raises . . . and how much people's happiness and sense of wellbeing increased doing different hobbies and activities.

 

And they found getting a LIBRARY CARD makes you feel SUPER happy.  In fact, the happiness is the equivalent of getting a BIG PAY RAISE.

 

The researchers found that getting a library card and using it increases a person's wellbeing the same amount as a $2,282 raise from work.  That's about a 5% raise if you're making $45,000-a-year.

 

Going to the library even feels better than playing SPORTS.  Playing sports increases a person's wellbeing as much as a $1,913 raise.
