Laughs, friends and hugs: A new survey finds the best things in life are free - I knew it!!!

Post by Guest on Fri Jun 03, 2011 8:57 pm

Happiness is not all money in the bank, fast cars and designer clothes, but family, friends and the beauty of nature, a study has found. A new survey has revealed the things which bring a smile to our faces are in fact life's simple pleasures - available to all, for free, every single day. Then people were asked what their most important pleasures were, 22 per cent of the 2,000 people quizzed picked laughing, swiftly followed by eating good food with great friends, in second place with 21 per cent.


Haha! Twenty-two per cent of people questioned in a survey chose laughter as their most important pleasure

A hug was in third place with 19 per cent. The research suggests that despite the world's focus on materialistic possessions, people still find pleasure in pastimes which do not cost a penny. Among the other top 10 pleasures listed was the feel of the sun on your face, reading a good book, walking along the beach and getting into bed with clean sheets. Also popular was watching sunsets, leafing through old photographs and memories and smelling freshly cut grass.

Ralph Walker, head of marketing for Apples from New Zealand, which organised the survey to mark the start of the import season, told the Daily Express: 'It seems that in an overly complicated and stressful world we’re looking for ways to reconnect with what really matters.
'Family, friends and the beauty of nature make people happiest. It’s the simplest things in life that do not cost us anything which seem to bring us the most happiness.' He said the research shows we place the most value on the least materialistic options and want to enjoy life's simple pleasures.
