The Perfect Day — Is There Such a Thing?

Posted By PIA Staff Reporter, Tuesday, October 30, 2018

The U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council (USHBC) — blueberry growers — commissioned a study on perfect days. Apparently perfect days are perfectly important to blueberry growers.

The study checked in with 2,000 adults and the results — says StudyFinds.org — are fascinating. Weekly Industry News agrees with the website. The results are very, very interesting.

Apparently, the average person only has 15 perfect days out of every 364 and a quarter days. Just 15? Wow. Equally interesting is what makes a day perfect. It’s little things. Not big things.

The perfect day — on average — for those 2,000 adults:

  Starts with waking up at 8:15 a.m.

  It’s a sunny day with the temperature reaching a balmy 74-degrees

  The perfect day means three-hours outside

  Four hours are spent with family

  Three hours are spent with friends

  Then it’s home to spend the last three-hours of the day watching TV

  The perfect day ends with bedtime at 10:15 p.m.

Vicki De Bruin of USHBC said, “Who doesn’t love sleeping in, sunny skies and spending time with loved ones. These simple pleasures put the biggest smiles on our faces — and it’s even better when we know these seemingly indulgent treats are actually really good for us.”

The survey also looked at what it calls mood-boosters make a cloudy day bright.

  58% said finding money in their pocket

  55% said waking up without an alarm

  51% loved lying in bed listening to the rain

  49% said being on the receiving end of a small act or small acts of kindness

  48% said petting a dog

  47% liked the idea of giving a small act or small acts of kindness to another person

  46% say they are happy when they hear a sunny weather forecast

  37% say music boosts their mood

The Beatles were the mood-boosting best band followed by The Eagles and Michael Jackson.

While there are just 15 perfect days per year, the average recipient said they have 204 good days in a year.


Here’s the rest of the top-40 mood boosters discovered in the survey
