A good night's sleep makes us happier than a 50 percent pay raise
Between Sleeping Beauty and Scrooge McDuck, guess which one is happier. The one who got her beauty rest!
Apparently a good night's sleep makes us happier than a 50 percent pay raise.
Getting decent rest was found to be the strongest indicator of well-being, followed by our satisfaction between the sheets in another way, job security and a sense of community.
That's according to the Living Well Index, created by top researchers at Oxford Economics and the National Centre for Social Research.

Over 8,200 Brits were asked questions related to nearly 20 topics from finances and relationships to health and environment.
People were then given a wellness score out of 100. The average person has a score of only 62.2.
Sleep quality added 3.8 points alone. A 50 percent pay raise accounted for a measly .5 point increase in the overall wellness score.
So there you have it. Disposable income didn't matter as much as getting a good night's sleep.
