Recently a two-part experiment was run in Canada. First the participants were asked to spend £30 on a purchase that would save them time. Next they were told to spend the money on material goods. The research concluded that time saving compared with material purchases increased happiness by reducing feelings of time stress.
Psychologists say stress over lack of time causes lower wellbeing and can contribute to anxiety and sleepless nights. However, even though people can afford it, they remain reluctant to pay for help. Less than a third of adults questioned, spent money in this way, but those that did, reported greater happiness.
"In a series of surveys we find that people who spend money to buy themselves more free time are happier - that is, they have higher life satisfaction", said Dr Elizabeth Dunn, a psychologist professor at the University of British Columbia, Canada.
