Does financial security = happiness?


Stressing over finances, such as paying school fees or saving for retirement, can actually lead you to become less satisfied with life. That’s according to a study conducted by Princeton University psychologist Talya Miron-Shatz in 2009.

At Map My Plan, we take the stress out of planning for your future. Answer a few simple questions about your circumstances and goals and we’ll build you a roadmap to guide you through the steps you need to take in order to reach your financial goals. Whether that’s saving for a house deposit or making sure your superannuation balance will support your retirement lifestyle.

Making sure your family doesn’t face financial hardship in the event something happens to you is also a key pillar in happiness. This is one of many reasons we recommend making sure you have adequate insurance policies in place as part of building a solid financial foundation.
