48 Examples of Life Satisfaction

 ,
Life satisfaction is how an individual feels about their life at a point in time. This is gauged by directly asking people "how satisfied are you with your life up to this point?" Life satisfaction is self-reported and means different things to different people. It typically includes happiness and self-fulfillment. Happiness is a sense of joy that one has experienced in life. Self-fulfillment is what one has done with life. It is possible to be satisfied with what you have accomplished without being happy. Likewise, it is possible to be happy without being completely satisfied with your own contributions and development in life. The following are common elements of life satisfaction.

Capitalist realism is a grim tendency to evaluate all human things in terms of money.
