Many factors have featured on a list of the top 50 feel good triggers. However, researchers carried out a study of 2,000 adults and found that none of those factors could beat a good night’s sleep for producing happiness.
“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams” Dr. Seuss.
Other things which appeared on the list include; giving or receiving compliment, good weather at the weekend, indulging in a chocolate bar, the sound of birds chirping, turning up the volume to a song which takes you back. Or finding money you had forgotten about in your pocket also appear high on the list.
According to the spokesperson to BPme which commissioned the survey, Samantha Clarke, these little things with small moments and human interaction could go a long way to boosting our wellbeing and mindset, creating happiness and make everyday a little better.
The research conducted by OnePoll found that Friday was the best day of the working week, as one-fifth of adults hit peak happiness on Friday. It then emerged that during a typical weekday, adults hit a dip in mood at 6am, when the morning alarm chimes to signal the start of another day. It’s worst on Monday morning, many can attest to this fact.
These early starts also affect happiness for many people and too tired to be in their best mood. Therefore, happiness slump down to having too much on their mind.
Sleep Deprivation makes You Cranky
If you’ve ever spent a night tossing and turning, you already know how you’ll feel the next day – tired, cranky and out of sorts. But missing out on the recommended 7 t0 9 hours of shut-eye nightly does more than make you feel groggy and grumpy. The long term effect of sleep deprivation is real, the happiness won’t be found anymore because it drains your mental ability and puts your physical health at real risk.
Your body needs sleep just as it needs air and food to function at its best. Your body undergoes series of healing and restoration of chemical balance in your body. Not being happy lowers your quality of life as a result of not getting enough sleep for your brain and body system to function normal.
In conclusion, how much we sleep is inexplicably linked to our overall happiness, therefore, when we’re sleep deprived, our risk for depression increases and we’re more likely to experience higher stress levels.
