(WKBW/ABC) Want to be happy and healthy? According to a new report, you need an annual income of at least 75-thousand dollars. The new survey found that as income dropped below 75,000 dollars, respondents reported decreasing happiness and increasing sadness and stress, and that raised the odds of getting a disease, but it's not necessarily the more money, the better. The survey also found quality of daily life seems to plateau if you make more than 75-thousand dollars a year.
