Weightlifting Shoes: Why You Need a Pair, What to Look For, and When to Wear Them

If I had a dollar for every time I’m asked about Olympic weightlifting shoes, well, I’d be able to afford plenty more pairs of weightlifting shoes. But since no one seems to give me a dollar when they ask me this question, I thought I might as well share a typical conversation on this hot topic with you lot. Any resemblances to conversations I have had with any of you are purely coincidental.

The Science Of Why You Should Spend Your Money On Experiences, Not Things

Most people are in the pursuit of happiness.  We know that money can make you happier, though after your basic needs are met, it doesn’t make you that much happier.  But one of the biggest questions is how to allocate our money, which is (for most of us) a limited resource.

“One of the enemies of happiness is adaptation,” says Dr. Thomas Gilovich, a psychology professor at Cornell University who has been studying the question of money and happiness for over two decades. “We buy things to make us happy, and we succeed.  But only for a while.  New things are exciting to us at first, but then we adapt to them.”

So rather than buying the latest iPhone or a new BMW, Gilovich suggests you’ll get more happiness spending money on experiences like going to art exhibits, doing outdoor activities, learning a new skill, or traveling.  Read more
