We all know money can’t buy happiness. But according to a recent study, there may be a loophole. A team of researchers finds that shelling out for services that save time can bring greater feelings of life satisfaction than, say, simply buying more stuff. The results appear in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

我们都知道金钱买不到幸福。但最近的一项研究显示,这句话可能存在漏洞。一组研究人员发现,与简单地花钱买更多东西相比,购买能节省时间的服务更能提高人们的生活满意度。这项研究结果发表在《美国国家科学院院刊》上。

可以说,我们大多数人都经常感到时间不够用。这种感觉非常普遍,我们的这种状态,被该研究的首席作者、哈佛商学院的阿什莉.威兰斯称之为“时间饥荒”。跟其他所有饥荒一样,长期时间紧张会对我们的健康造成损害。
