Today is the happiest day of the yearJune 19th, 2009 - 11:48 am ICT by ANI
London, June 19 (ANI): If you are feeling joyous today for no definite reason, then don’t be surprised, as today is the happiest day of the year, at least that’s what a researcher claims.
Dr Cliff Arnall of Brecon, Powys, used a special equation to find out that 19th June is the nicest day of the year: O + (N x S) + Cpm/T + He.
To calculate a day’s happiness rating, former Cardiff University lecturer, 44, gave values to each of the symbols.
He added outdoors (O) to nature (N) multiplied by social interaction (S).
The expert then added childhood memories of summers (Cpm) divided by temperature (T) plus excitement about holidays (He).
According to the researcher, warmer summer days are more pleasant than gloomy winters, which, allows people to come out and socialize.
“People’s minds are on the credit crunch but it doesn’t take away from the equation’s primary factors, spending time with people you love and being outdoors in the warm weather,” the Sun quoted him as saying.
“People may be less able to afford other leisure activities but it’s free to walk in the park or paddle in the stream,” he added.
Dr. Arnall also believes that money does not necessarily buy happiness.
“The most important things in our lives are our relationships - and no amount of money can buy that.
“I’ve spoken to miserable multi-millionaires and people who have no money but are very happy because they have amazing friends,” he added. (ANI)
