Lindt’s study also finds:

  • Unexpected things can also make us happy, like finding money in a jacket pocket (38%), a smile from a stranger (32%), scoring a bargain at the grocery store (31%) and finding something you’ve lost (30%).
  • Spring brings a lot of joy to folks, thanks to longer and lighter evenings (42%), blooming flowers (34%) and picnics in the park (21%).
  • There are some generational differences in what lifts people’s spirits, for older generations it’s a walk in the park (57%) and bright, sunny mornings (59%). While just over a third (35%) of 18- to 29-year-olds love funny TikToks.
  • Chocolate is universally pleasing across the generations, with 37% of all respondents agreeing it's one of life’s simple pleasures. And for 25%, just the taste of chocolate is enough to make them smile.
