Okay I know this might just be the most "it depends" question but generally speaking, at what salary do people generally not find any more happiness?

Personally I would guess £80k but what do you guys think?

Totally depends your lifestyle, ambitions and what part of the country you live in.

Some couples happily live on £30,000.

30k seems a bit low when considering stuff like kids,holidays and fun stuff as that stuff isnt cheap

i think after 50 or 60k happiness doesn’t increase at all. and i wouldn’t say it’s a big increase from 30 to 50k anyway just a bit more security. that would probably be for a whole family though. i don’t think it matters too much, bearing in mind many well paying jobs are incredibly stressful and time consuming.

I’d say 75k a year, there were multiple studies done to show the validity of the economics concept “Easterlin paradox” which states that happiness increases as income increases upto 75k after from that there isn’t a major difference

That's going to depend on where you live and what your goals are. If you live in central London, and want to retire early (staying there), it'll be a lot.

In my experience, anything beyond 90K does very little towards happiness. I think highest I've gone for is around 110K during contracts but also comes with incredibly high stress and barely any personal time. 50-60K with decent work life balance seems to be alright.
