Research has shown that the achievement of such goals as wealth, beauty and fame actually makes people less happy. These factors do not promote the overall life satisfaction. Happiness can only be achieved if a person grows as an individual, maintains strong relationships with their loved ones and benefits his society.
Researchers noticed that gratification of desires is not always beneficial for one’s psychological health or emotional well being. Those who achieve material benefits quickly are more likely to experience negative emotions, such as shame and anger, and ailments such as headaches, stomach aches, and lethargy.
At the same time, people who have aspired to spiritual goals are more physically fit, feel more positive, keep strong social relationships with their close ones and experience less stress.
