This seems just about right for how people are feeling these days: Some stuff makes you happy, some stuff bums you out, and it’s rare you REALLY skew one direction or another.
A new study found the average American smiles 11 times a day. But we also frown or pout 11 times a day.
The top five things that make us smile are:
- Hearing good news
- Hearing a joke
- Being with family
- Getting a compliment from a stranger
- Getting paid
The study also found 37% of people have been really trying to find more stuff to smile about during the pandemic.
