Do you have a life?

In our modern life it is quite difficult to know that if we are really enjoying our lives. Our Do you have a life quiz will help you know exactly that. It is a really fun and entertaining personality quiz and you should give it a try.

One of the most perplexing aspects of contemporary American life is that, while life has become more pleasant on average, happiness has declined.

According to the United States Census Bureau, average household income in the United States was higher in 2019 than it had ever been for every income quintile before, after adjusting for inflation. In addition, while income inequality has increased, this has not been reflected in an increase in inequality in the consumption of goods and services in the economy. From 2008 to 2019, households in the lowest income quintile increased spending on eating out by an average of approximately 22 percent after accounting for inflation; households in the highest income quintile increased spending on eating out by an average of slightly less than 8 percent during the same period. Meanwhile, the number of people using domestic government services has increased significantly: For example, in inflation-adjusted terms, federal spending on education, training, employment, and social services increased by around 30% between 2000 and 2019.

The average living area per person in new American homes in 2016 was 1,000 square feet larger than it was in 1973, and the average living space per person has nearly doubled since 1973. Between 2000 and 2019, the percentage of Americans who use the internet climbed from 52 to 90 percent. Between 2005 and 2019, the percentage of people who use social media increased from 5 to 72 percent.

However, despite these improvements in quality of life across the income spectrum, average happiness in the United States is declining. Using data from the General Social Survey, which has been assessing social trends among Americans every one or two years since 1972, researchers have discovered a long-term, progressive fall in happiness—as well as an increase in unhappiness—from 1988 to the present.

There are various plausible explanations for this contradiction, including the following: Maybe people are unaware of all of the incredible improvement that has occurred in recent decades. Maybe people can’t recognize progress when it occurs over a long period of time. Maybe we’re measuring the wrong things when it comes to “quality of life.” I have a feeling the answer is all three. The final concept, on the other hand, is very crucial to comprehend in order to improve our personal pleasure.

The notion that consuming does not lead to happiness is not a new one; it is a fundamental tenant of nearly every religion, as well as many philosophical traditions, including Buddhism. Karl Marx’s notion of alienation, which may be defined as a sense of estrangement from one’s own self that results from being a part of a materialistic society in which we are cogs in a huge market-based machine, is often considered to be his most important contribution to social theory.

Nonetheless, you do not have to be religious (or a Marxist) to recognize how ludicrous some of the arguments that emerge out of our hyper-consumerist society actually are. We are promised happiness with the next pay raise, the next new gadget, or even with the next sip of Coke, yet we never seem to receive it. In his book The Happiness Fantasy, Swedish management professor Carl Cederström makes a compelling case that firms and advertisers have promised people happiness but have instead lured them into a rat race of joyless productivity and consumption. While the material comforts of life in the United States have improved for many of its residents, these items do not provide meaning to one’s existence.
