Happiness is not found in luxurious holidays, fast cars or expensive flat screen televisions. We find true happiness in a nice afternoon nap, beautiful music or a good glass of wine. This is concluded by researchers at the University of Nottingham. The British National Lottery asked them to investigate how satisfied lottery winners and a control group were with their lives. And especially how they treated themselves when they thought they deserved it.
Among the lottery winners 95% was satisfied and it the control group that percentage was 71. In both groups the most happy people gave themselves simple things as rewards. For example a warm bath, a relaxing walk in the park or playing a game at home. The unhappy people sooner chose things that cost money, like cds, dvds and take out food. According to the British researchers we can learn from the satisfied people in our society was it the secret of a happy live: to relax.
