Interesting Fact – Happiness

According to a survey run by Age Partnership, to find out what key lifestyle changes can best improve your mood, women are made happier by getting a dog or cat, while men’s positivity is boosted by joining a club or buying a new car.

(For Brits over 55 a pub lunch was viewed as an easy way of improving your mood.

The three most affordable options were eating out once a month, going on a monthly organised day trip and being in a club.

The three least affordable lifestyle changes are getting a conservatory, buying a new car or buying a campervan – all of which are impossible to afford on the state pension alone, and if money were no object, the most effective happiness promoter for the over-55s would be to go on holiday.)
