Sex And Partying Makes You Happier Than Children And Religion Says A Recent Study

Published on 18 June, 2015 at 1:45 pm By

Is having children essential for leading a happy life? Well, a recent study conducted at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand doesn’t reveal that to be true. The study found that on average, partying and sex rate highest on the ‘pleasure scale’, while volunteering, religion, and childcare round out the rest of the top five most-enjoyable activities, reports Elite Daily.

The study involved analyzing the text messages of participants to build what they called ‘pleasure maps’. Participants were asked to rank popular activities in regard to their position in three set categories: pleasure, meaning, and engagement.

Sex, unsurprisingly, ranked number one across all three categories, while partying ranked high on the ‘pleasure’ scale but low on the ‘meaning’ scale. Rather surprisingly, ‘using Facebook’ ranked relatively low on the pleasure scale as well, along with ‘housework’ and ‘feeling sick’.

Speaking of the survey results, the led researcher of the study, Carsten Grimm, explained:



Those who tend to be high on all three orientations to happiness not only score high on life satisfaction, they also tend to have higher experiences of pleasure, meaning, engagement, and happiness in their daily lives. This means that being able to seek happiness in different ways may enrich your everyday experience and increase your overall well-being.

 

The specifics of the survey — including how the activities were chosen and the demographics of the respondents — remain unclear, so the accuracy of the survey results may be slightly skewed.
