Happiness From Your Team Winning Lasts Longer Than Hearing “I Love You”

While it’s always nice to hear people say “I Love You,” it turns out there’s a lot of other things that can make you feel even happier.

A new survey finds:

  • Feelings off happiness after hearing a partner say “I Love You” can last an average of four hours.
  • But there are plenty of things that make you feel happier longer, including having your favorite team win, with that happiness lasting, four hours and nine minutes.
  • But both things don’t compare to the happiness felt spending time with your family, four hours and 33 minutes. 
  • Of course, those aren’t the only things that bring happiness that lasts. Others include:
    • Getting home from a vacation with a glowing tan – 4 hours 13 minutes
    • When your child makes you a piece of art – 4 hours 1 minute
    • Playing with your pet – 3 hours 47 minutes
    • Finding a bargain in a shop – 3 hours 39 minutes
    • Finishing a workout – 3 hours 36 minutes
    • Cleaning/tidying the house – 3 hours 36 minutes
    • Eating a chocolate bar – 3 hours 34 minutes
    • Getting complimented – 3 hours 30 minutes
    • Having a cold alcoholic drink on a hot day – 3 hours 17 minutes
    • Listening to a song that fills you with nostalgia – 3 hours 9 minutes
    • Eating junk food – 3 hours 6 minutes
    • Drinking a cup of tea – 3 hours 4 minutes 

But money issues have forced 39% of people to cut back on things that make them happy, including

  • Ordering takeout (42%)
  • Holidays (39%)
  • Social activities with friends (37%)
  • But 25% aren’t willing to give up their daily coffee.
  • 21% won’t give up shopping.
