“Waiting for Merlot”, psychologists Amit Kumar, Thomas Gilovich and Matthew Killingsworth show how experiential purchases (money spent on doing) tend to provide more enduring happiness than material purchases (money spent on having)

Yet there are also differences in how we feel before an experiential or material purchase. People report being mostly frustrated before the planned purchase of a thing, but mostly happy before they bought an experience – like a trip or an activity.

“The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and
instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.”– Samuel Johnson
