Father’s Day is this Sunday.  Science suggests that the gifts of time and fellowship are more connecting than a neck tie or a new pair of sock?

Psychologists say ‘we’ all feel ‘happier’ when we spend our money on experiences rather than objects. -Ryan Howell, lead researcher from San Francisco State University

How much should I spend on that experience? You may be surprised…

One of the cool findings from a study through San Francisco State University is that you don’t have to spend lots of money to have a meaningful experience.

Examples: $5 going to a coffee shop. A couple of hours at a ballgame.  A meal together.  Or an hour at a spa.  Also, spending MORE money doesn’t correlate to a more meaningful experience.
