NEW RESEARCH REVEALS BRITS ARE STUCK IN A RUT

1

 

  • New research from Butlin’s Big Weekenders reveals that 67% of Brits consider themselves to be bored of the daily grind 
  • Delving further, more than a quarter (27%) of Brits are actively unhappy with their lives
  • The British public feels happiest when having fun (54%), when sharing an experience with someone (54%) or when on a weekend away (50%)

  

That said, just what is it that the British public are after to make them smile and increase their levels of happiness?

 

The survey revealed that the top three situations in which Brits feel the happiest are when they’re having fun (54%), when they’re sharing an experience with somebody (54%) or when they’re on a trip away from home (50%). 

 

We all know Brits love a bargain and in true British style, 37% of survey respondents revealed they are at their happiest when they are getting good value for money. With Butlin’s Big Weekenders starting from just £65pp, guests can experience a weekend of endless fun without breaking the bank. Included in the price is accommodation, access to all live music and activities like pool parties and silent discos.  

 

The study confirms the pandemic has made us focus on the less materialistic things in life, with the activities most likely to put a smile on our faces being spending time with family (58%), walking (52%) and listening to music (51%). Other activities that have Brits on top of the world are seeing live music (30%) and playing games (26%).

 

It’s no secret that music can be the key to altering your mood, with over half of Brits stating that listening to music is one of the key activities they take part in to boost their happiness levels. 

 

Mike Godolphin, Entertainment Director at Butlin’s said “Our Big Weekenders are all about getting together with your friends, letting your hair down and having a great time. 85% of Brits are happier when with their friends. So, whether you’re an 80’s, 90’s or 00’s lover, prefer Ibiza classics or even a fan of Oktoberfest, there’s a Butlin’s Big Weekender for every group.

 

“Over half the nation suggest they need to forget about the day-to-day stresses to be happy. With a break full of live music and new activities such as Bottomless Brunch, a Big Weekender is the perfect answer.”
