With our digital lives almost taking over our real ones (yup guilty blogger here!) it can be easy to get sucked into negativity even without meaning too. Butterkist recently sent Dr W and I night in pack to help us have some fun away from our screens!
According to research from Butterkist, the happiest we are is with friends and family. With most of us preferring a night in with loved ones to a night out on the town. To be honest I’m in much agreement here, having written about why I love nights in before. There’s nothing better than a gin and tonic at home in front of the telly!
With quite hectic jobs Dr W and I love to spend quality time with our friends. For us this is our prime happy time. We quite frequently holding Friday Night movie nights and games nights at the flat. Recently we’ve been enjoying some hilarious games along with tasty popcorn from Butterkist. I’d seen Speak Out on telly but never played, it’s rather crazy. I have to admit my favourite game of late is the #NSFW Exploding Kittens – hilarious!
According to research the other thing other than friends and family that makes us happy is our hobbies. I spend a lot of time at work so definitely like to carve out time to do mine. Recently I’ve picked up running again and Dr W and I are frequently going on hiking adventures. Time outdoors really does pick up my mood and I’ve become a weirdo who enjoys running in the rain! I’ve also been enjoying exploring Birmingham a lot more.
So what makes you happy? Where’s your happy place? Are you a night out or night in person? Let me know in the comments,
