When we started Zumvee, one of the purpose we set out to achieve was for people to consume less and have increased levels of happiness at the same time. And this purpose grew out of an erroneous idea that seems to have taken root: that we need more stuff to be happy. Research has shown time and again that stuff does not make you happy (the video below sums it up nicely). Exercising, having a great time trying something new or spending more time with friends and family does.
With this in mind, it always gives us great satisfaction when our customers tell us that they were arranging a wake boarding experience for their parents or taking their wives on a vocal recording experience. It’s what we encourage people to do and we hope in time, the idea of experience gifts will be as big as in other parts of the world. If you believe that spending quality time is more important than pursuing more stuff, help us pass on the word by tweeting or sharing on Facebook and spread some happiness today!
