Want Happiness? A Spontaneous Decision Might Be Key

The average American makes 6,709 spontaneous decisions every year, according to newly-published research.

A survey of 2,000 American respondents found that, when including decisions such as getting coffee, trying a new lunch place, taking a nap and the like, the average American will act spontaneously more than a dozen times a day.

And is acting spontaneously a key to happiness? According to this survey, it might be.

The study, conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Cub Cadet, found that more than a third of those who said that they are a “spontaneous person” were also more likely to consider themselves a “happy person.” They were also more likely to feel content and satisfied with their life.

Interestingly, most Americans do consider themselves quite spontaneous, as only about one in six did not think of themselves as such.

More than 70 percent of those surveyed said they feel happier after when they make a spur-of-the-moment decision in some way.
