請問這篇文章怎麼翻譯較好?

Money & Happiness: Will You Laugh All the Way to the Bank?

• It's all relative.

Faced with this sort of data, researchers have speculated that our happiness is influenced not by our absolute level of wealth and income, but rather by how our financial situation compares with friends and colleagues.

This may help explain why so many high-income earners describe themselves as "very happy." Much of the time, these folks aren't necessarily all that cheerful. But when asked in surveys to assess their satisfaction with their lives, they think about their standing in the world -- and that prompts them to say they are happy.

• On the clock.

The five professors also studied government data detailing how folks divvy up their waking hours. They found that people with higher incomes tend to spend more time working, commuting and engaging in obligatory nonwork activities, such as maintaining their homes. All of these are associated with lower happiness.

• Buying time.

This raises the question: If more money won't make us much happier, what will? Here are four pointers.

• Keep your commute short.

• Choose time over money.

• Think carefully about how you spend your dollars.

• Use your leisure time wisely.

    Money & Happiness: Will You Laugh All the Way to the Bank?

    金錢與幸福 : 你會一路笑著到銀行嗎?

    (意思是即使你有很多錢可以到銀行存,但你不見得快樂)

    • It's all relative. 一切都是相對的

    Faced with this sort of data, researchers have speculated that our happiness is influenced not by our absolute level of wealth and income, but rather by how our financial situation compares with friends and colleagues.

    研究學者發現我們感覺幸福的程度不是來自絕對的收入,而是和朋友及同事的收入相比後產生的

    This may help explain why so many high-income earners describe themselves as "very happy." Much of the time, these folks aren't necessarily all that cheerful. But when asked in surveys to assess their satisfaction with their lives, they think about their standing in the world -- and that prompts them to say they are happy.

    這解釋了為何有錢人認為他們比較快樂。即使不一定快樂,但當他們被問到是否快樂時,由於自認為他們在這世界(相較於窮人)是有地位的,所以他們會告訴你他們很快樂。

    • On the clock. 時間分配

    The five professors also studied government data detailing how folks divvy up their waking hours. They found that people with higher incomes tend to spend more time working, commuting and engaging in obligatory nonwork activities, such as maintaining their homes. All of these are associated with lower happiness.

    五位教授研究了由政府提供的有關於人們如何分配他們的時間的資料,他們發現高收入的人多把時間花在工作、通勤和一些非工作的(像維護他們的房子)活動-基本上這些工作伴隨著較低的幸福感

    • Buying time. 買些時間吧

    This raises the question: If more money won't make us much happier, what will? Here are four pointers.

    問題: 如果錢無法帶來快樂,什麼才可以帶來快樂? 在此提供四點:

    • Keep your commute short. 不要通勤到老遠去上班

    • Choose time over money. 少一點工作,多一點時間給自己

    • Think carefully about how you spend your dollars. 仔細思考如何花錢

    • Use your leisure time wisely. 正確運用你的休閒時間
