Money, ac­cord­ing to Louis Tay, an as­sis­tant pro­fes­sor of psy­cho­log­i­cal sci­ences at Purdue Univer­sity, can buy hap­pi­ness, but debt plays a big part. The fi­nan­cial worry aris­ing from debt tends to put a dent on life sat­is­fac­tion, af­fect­ing your over­all well-be­ing. “Car­ry­ing stu­dent loan debt is al­most as im­por­tant as in­come in pre­dict­ing fi­nan­cial worry and life sat­is­fac­tion, and this study shows the bur­den it can put on one's life for the long term,” Tay says.
