Life's 50 greatest pleasures revealed by poll
Life's 50 greatest pleasures revealed by poll: Finding a £10 note in an old pair of jeans and being told you've lost weight are among life's greatest pleasure triggers, it's been found. A study of 3,000 adults revealed simple pleasures such as getting into a bed with freshly washed sheets and seeing an old couple holding hands also help to brighten our day. Sunshine was found to be largely responsible for our good mood - such as waking up to a sunny day, sitting in the sun and driving with the car windows down on a sunny day all appearing in the top 20. Other happy moments include being surprised with flowers or chocolates, getting a nice message or cuddle from a loved one, or getting a thank you card in the post. Unfortunately for many, the hustle and bustle of everyday life means the average person is only happy for half the week.
