Survey Reveals Best Things In Life

Posted: Updated:

Sometimes it's easy to forget the little things in life that really add up and make us happy. It can be as simple as a cup of coffee in the morning or watching a movie on a rainy day.

Now, a new survey out of Great Britain finds many of the best things in life, really are free!

The survey was done by Ordnance Survey, the UK's mapping agency, and 2,000 Brits responded. Here is the top five:

  • Christmas dinner
  • Booking a holiday
  • Chocolate
  • Clean Bed Sheets
  • Cuddling

Alcohol was number 10 on the list, followed by coffee, which is 11. Besides cuddling, there were a few other love-related favorite things. Hearing "I love you" from someone was number seven, hearing the same phrase from a child was number 20 and first kisses was number 33. Besides booking a holiday, several travel items made it on the list too. A day at the beach was number 13, according to the survey, and getting off a plane into hot weather was number 30.

Read the full study here. Many readers in the comments section also added their own lists. For example, "Miss Kitty" from Glasgow wrote, "The smell of freshly cut grass, of wood smoke ... freshly baked bread.

A local Philadelphia filmmaker also looked at this question. Here are some of the answers that he got. People in the Philadelphia are cited diverse things like listening to Chopin and listening to Barry Manilow.
