What Are The Things That Really Make Us Happy?

“What’s going to make you happy?”  It might be one of the most difficult questions to answer completely.

The obvious answer on most peoples list would be money, but according to a new survey, it didn’t even find a spot in the top 10.

So what kind of things did people list?  Check them out below.

The way the survey worked is it asked for activities from people, then took the 40 most popular and people gave them a happiness rating.

Here are the top five things that make people happy.

#1.)  Kissing or hugging someone you love.

#2.)  Watching your children, grandchildren, or a close relative succeed.

#3.)  Being told you’re someone who can be trusted or relied on.

#4.)  Spending time with your family or friends at a meal or social gathering.

#5.)  Experiencing a special moment with a child.

And of the 40 activities in the survey, here are the five that do the WORST job at making us happy.

#1.)  Playing board games, cards, or video games.  They do the WORST job of making us happy.

#2.)  Connecting with friends or family on Facebook.

#3.)  Watching or participating in a sport.

#4.)  Completing a puzzle.

#5.)  Winning an award or a competition.

I don’t know if I agree with the bottom five, only because I know that all of those things personally make me happy.  Overall though the survey found that most people were generally happy.
