It is better to travel with your old car than to buy a new one, thinks lucky expert Ap Dijksterhuis. Against De Morgen:
“My message is: spend money on experiences and not on things. That is much better for your happiness. You look back more positively on experiences. We actually fool ourselves a bit. Part of the happiness of experiences, of traveling in particular, is because they get more and more beautiful in your head over time. ”
You forget the rain and hassle of the holiday. “When you think back about pain, you no longer remember that pain. For example, if you've ever given birth, you can remember the pain that you felt, but you won't relive it again. If it were, no woman would want to have more than one child. That's how it works with travel. "
" Research into the effects on happiness after traveling abroad shows that people with an open mind are the main beneficiaries. Another characteristic is neuroticism (hypersensitivity to negative stimuli, ed.). People who score high on that do not get happy from traveling. These people are often scared faster. They should therefore not go directly to India if they have never gone far. "
