Happy people have direction in life, help others, and cultivate spiritual emotions, the infographic says. Balanced and harmonious intimate and personal relationships play an important role. Money buys status and boosts happiness, but singletons are not as happy as people who have meaningful relationships. Some say that unhappy people are less likely to get involved and marry. Others believe that marriage and commitment make people happy. Religion is the opium of the people, Karl Marx once said. Yet, believing in God, afterlife, reincarnation, or the Second Coming gives people purpose and meaning. Religion helps people to deal with problems and cope with adversity.
Many people have mortgages and loans to pay, stressful jobs, and a couple of children. Some are unhappy because of failed dreams and broken marriages. Happily married couples experience special moments with their family and children while never-marrieds sometimes lack the security that comes with commitment. Pets also make people happy, and many people spend a lot of time (and money) with/for their pet. Especially singles.
